NFL Rumors: Broncos Top Pass-Rusher To Be Traded If Team Loses Week 8

There have been numerous trade rumors flying around this past week about the Denver Broncos.

One very intriguing, and a most likely one, is that of linebacker Bradley Chubb.

According to Mike Florio of NFL Network, the Broncos' top pass-rusher Bradley Chubb will be traded likely by Tuesday if the Broncos lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8.
There are multiple other players drawing trade interest on Denver's roster, but Chubb is certainly the most enticing one.

Chubb is in a contract year, leading the Broncos in sacks with 5.5, and has recorded 15 quarterback pressures and eight hits, in addition to two forced fumbles over seven games this season. He also has the 11th-best pass-rush grade in the NFL with 82.9. 

Another reason why the Broncos would want to sell Chubb this season is because it would be a hard task to re-sign the linebacker after dishing out $70 million to Randy Gregory this past March. So, why not try and get something for Chubb, rather than losing him in the offseason for nothing, other than a compensatory pick?
