Bradley Chubb wants to be seen as Khalil Mack and Von Miller merged into one
Edge Rusher Bradley Chubb has lofty expectations for himself. He wants to be the best of both worlds when it comes to elite defensive line play.
Bradley Chubb is likely going to be a Top 3 pick depending on how crazy the quarterback needy teams get in the 2018 NFL Draft. He has the size at 6’4” and 269 pounds to be a terror as an edge rusher.
At the Wholesale NFL Jerseys Combine he has set goals for himself to be as explosive as Von Miller and as powerful at Khalil Mack.
“I try to take Khalil Mack and Von Miller and put them into one person,” Chubb said. “Khalil Mack’s the more powerful guy, probably the best long arm in the game right now. Von Miller’s the speed, finesse guy. Just try to put both of those together, have some power moves, have some speed moves that I go to.”

He has the work ethic to achieve one or both goals as he set about to work like a professional football player by changing his diet and working on his explosiveness off the ball this offseason.
The Denver Broncos are unlikely to take a him at number five, but if they did something like that I wouldn’t complain. Chubb seems to have the work ethic and drive that Shane Ray has so far lacked in his first three seasons in the league.
When asked about the possibility of playing in Denver, Chubb seemed to relish the thought of playing with Miller.
“If I got to play with Von Miller, that would be crazy,” Chubb said. “He’s such a great player, such a dynamic player. Definitely could learn a lot from him.”
Chubb wouldn’t be the only one benefiting from being in Denver. Miller would too as he would no longer be double and triple teams and/or chipped on every single play. He’d have the monster on the other side that DeMarcus Ware was for three seasons.
As unlikely as it is, this fan can still dream for another few months about the possibility of those two playing together in Denver.

Raiders’ Khalil Mack 5th-year option became guaranteed Wednesday
Somewhat lost in the Raiders’ 2018 NFL free agency frenzy over the past 72 hours was the fact that defensive end Khalil Mack’s fifth-year option became guaranteed Wednesday to the tune of $13.846 million, according to NBC Sports Area’s Scott Bair.
Mack’s contract was a far more prevalent topic during the 2017 NFL free agency period as the team was working on locking in franchise quarterback Derek Carr to a long-term deal during that same time. However, the salary cap implications of Carr’s signing combined with the hefty salaries of others on the roster pushed any negotiations for Mack back to this offseason.
Though Mack’s fifth-year option became guaranteed Wednesday at 1 p.m. PT when free agency officially opened, that shouldn’t negate the team from negotiating the terms of a long-term contract with the former defensive player of the year once general manager Reggie McKenzie and Jon Gruden are content with the rest of their roster.
Moreover, Mack isn’t the type of player that is looking to get paid by the highest bidder, he does have loyalty to the team and both sides will have a much easier time negotiating a deal once McKenzie and Gruden have locked in their 2018 free agent and/or NFL draft selections.
