    Why wasn’t this done weeks ago…

    2022 should be his last year here. No way do you throw money at someone who never plays.

      Bummer. Hopefully he gets it cleaned up and can be a force during a late season playoffs push.

        I agree...he’s been mostly disappointing.

              $12.7M salary next year for a player you can't rely on? Do you pay him believing he will be one of the starting edge rushers? Don't know about that. Sounds like a risky proposition.

                  Feel like he going to have Courtney Brown career.

                    Pretty predictable. He should have sought a second opinion on it way earlier. It's been bothering him for quite some time now. Time to start taking a deep dive into this year's EDGE class. I'm fine with keeping his fifth-year option in tact, but the idea of throwing huge money at Chubb after 2022, who has battled injuries and staying healthy, seems quite risky.

                      Two avoidable long term injuries on defense. *sigh*

                          Why was this not done months ago? As others have stated, pick up the option, but it's going to be hard to throw a money contract at him beyond 2022.

                            that's not the point. He might have a long career. It just will not be with the broncos. He's never/rarely available.

                              Then based on history, Von will do well and we'll win more games.

                              What a bust. I don't blame Elway at all because no one saw this coming.

                                Ugh. It was the right move at the time but looking back at it now.... not so much. Shaq is a beast.

                                  Bradley Chubb will have surgery on his ankle, and the Denver Broncos should turn to some free agents to help boost their pass rush in the meantime.

                                    it wasn't the right move at the time. Didn't get a quality QB and got an LB we didn't need that's never really played or resulted in a high number of wins.

                                      Let's be honest there were three choices at that point in the draft

                                      1. Chubb- consider one of the top two players in the draft
                                      2. Nelson - consider one of the top two players in the draft, but was guard
                                      3. Allen. - consider potential franchise QB but media over blew is bust factor.

                                      Looking back they should have taken Allen or Nelson but you can argue that Chubb was the right call on draft night.

                                        It's waaaay too early to write off Chubb as a bust. If his surgery goes well, he should still be a major factor in Denver's D through the second half of the season.

                                          Dude, you may be right about his return this year. But the question must be asked whether Chubb is better than an average OLB. Is he that much better in productivity than Reed? Can Cooper or Browning be as productive given availability? I have no answer, but he is showing to be a high maintenance/results player. Big bucks next year.

                                            Elsid summed it up nicely. We were never going to pick a guard 5th and Allen was a HUGE project. Probably a good thing we didn't pick Allen, he would be out of the league by now after we ran him through our QB factory of sadness.

                                              Nelson is out as well or I'm pretty sure he is. I know he was hurt and out early on. So none of those would really make a difference. Chubb was the right move at the time. I think he will be fine. He just has had some really bad luck.

                                                Nelson hasn't miss a start. 50/50 games

                                                  Strange , I swear I heard he got a leg injury in pre-season and was out for some time.
