Just before the trade deadline Miami made a bold move to get a young top pass rusher in a trade. The Denver Broncos gave up one of their young pass rushers in exchange for a first-round pick from Miami.
I know what some of you might be saying didn’t Miami forfeit their 2023 first round pick? Yes, they did. Miami had two picks in the 2023 NFL draft because of a deal they made in the 2021 NFL draft when they traded down from 3 to 12 in the draft with the 49ers who moved up to 3 and drafted QB Tre Lance.
The 49ers also gave Miami two future #1 picks and the amazing story behind it all is what Miami’s GM Chris Grier did with the 3 first round picks they got for the 49ers.
- In 2021 Miami at 12 took Jaylen Waddle
- In 2022 they used that pick to trade for Tyreek Hill
- The 2023 pick was just used to get Bradly Chubb
So, Miami has just added a premier pass rusher in his prime and signed him to a five-year, $110 million contract extension. They also have Tyreek Hill long term and Jaylen Waddle is in his rookie contract.
These are key players that will have a major impact on this team and put Miami in playoff contention if not more!
Welcome to Miami Bradley Chubb!!
