Bradley Austin Chubb (born June 24, 1996) is an American football linebacker for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at NC State, and was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft.

Early life

Chubb was a hybrid linebacker-defensive end at Hillgrove High School, where he helped the Hawks advance to the Georgia 6A quarterfinals as a senior.[5] He officially committed to North Carolina State University on June 24, 2013.[6] Chubb also had offers from Duke, West Virginia, Wake Forest, East Carolina, and others.[7]

College career

As a freshman, Chubb received marginal playing time, mostly on special teams. He switched from outside linebacker to defensive end before his sophomore season and broke the starting lineup by the beginning of the season.[8]

As a junior, he continued to start and became a team leader off the field. He finished third in the Atlantic Coast Conference in tackles for loss.[9] During the 2016 Independence Bowl, Chubb sacked Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur, which made a favorable impression on Kyle's father Pat Shurmur, who scouted Chubb extensively in early 2018.[10]

In his senior season, Chubb, after winning a game against then-No. 12 Florida State, ran to midfield at FSU's Doak Campbell Stadium and spat on the Seminole logo in an apparent act of disrespect.[11] He later apologized for the incident. As for a cause, he alluded to a February 2017 Instagram post on which some Florida State players negatively commented.[12] On November 4, 2017, playing Clemson, Chubb took opposing quarterback Kelly Bryant's towel three times. After not eliciting a reaction after the first two, a Clemson offensive lineman held Chubb after the third time until he gave the towel back. Chubb met with officials after the incident but was not penalized.[13] A week later in a game against Boston College, Chubb recorded two and a half sacks to pass Mario Williams as the all-time sack leader in NC State Wolfpack history. In the same game, he also passed Williams to become the Wolfpack leader in tackles for loss.[14]

During his senior season at NC State, Chubb recorded ten sacks and had almost a third of his 72 total tackles go for a loss.[15] The 23 tackles for loss put him second among NCAA Division I players in 2017.[16] His postseason accolades included being named ACC Defensive Player of the Year,[17] first-team All ACC,[18] first-team All-America,[19] the Bronko Nagurski Trophy,[20] and the Ted Hendricks Award.[21][22]

Professional career

Chubb was projected to go in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft.[23] Different projections pegged him as going within the top five (as high as first to the Cleveland Browns) or to the Indianapolis Colts at the sixth pick.[24][25][26] During the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, Chubb named Von Miller and Khalil Mack as players whom he models his play after.[27]

Chubb entered training camp slated as a starting outside linebacker. Head coach Vance Joseph named Chubb and Von Miller the starting outside linebackers to begin the regular season. They started alongside inside linebackers Todd Davis and Brandon Marshall.[33]

He made his professional regular season debut and first career start in the Broncos' season-opener against the Seattle Seahawks and recorded three combined tackles and was credited with half a sack during a 27–24 victory. He made his first career sack with teammate Darian Stewart on Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson for a six-yard loss during the first quarter.[34] In Week 3, he recorded two solo tackles and made his first career solo sack on Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco during a 27–14 loss at the Baltimore Ravens.[35] On October 14, 2018, Chubb recorded five combined tackles and made a season-high three sacks on quarterback Jared Goff as the Broncos lost 23–20 against the Los Angeles Rams.[36] The following week, he made three solo tackles, two sacks, and made one forced fumble by quarterback Josh Rosen during a 45–10 win at the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.[37] For his efforts, Chubb was named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month for October.[38] In Week 11, he collected season-high seven combined tackles and made one sack during a 23–22 win at the Los Angeles Chargers. He started in all 16 games in 2018 and recorded 60 combined tackles (41 solo), 12 sacks, two forced fumbles, and one pass deflection.[39] He received an overall grade of 68.9 from Pro Football Focus, which ranked 48th among all qualifying edge rushers in 2018.[40] He was ranked 82nd by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2019.[41]

2019

During Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Chubb recorded his first sack of the season on Gardner Minshew in the 26–24 loss.[42] At one point, Chubb left the game due to an injury but briefly returned. Later on, it was reported that Chubb had suffered a partial tear of the ACL in his left knee, which prematurely ended his 2019 season.[43][44]

2020

In Week 4 against the New York Jets, Chubb recorded his first 2.5 sacks of the season on Sam Darnold during the 37–28 win.[45]

On December 21, 2020, Chubb was voted to the 2021 Pro Bowl.[46] In the 2020 season, Chubb appeared in and started 14 games, he finished with 7.5 sacks, 42 total tackles (26 solo), and one forced fumble.[47] He was ranked 40th by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2021.[48]

2021

The Broncos exercised the fifth-year option on Chubb's contract on April 30, 2021,[49] which will guarantee a salary of $12.72 million for the 2022 season.[50] He was placed on injured reserve on September 22, 2021, after undergoing ankle surgery.[51] He was activated on November 27.[52] He appeared in and started seven games and had 21 total tackles (nine solo), one interception, and two passes defended.[53]

Miami Dolphins

On November 1, 2022, the Broncos traded Chubb along with a 2025 fifth-round pick to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for running back Chase Edmonds, a 2023 first-round pick (pick from San Francisco), and a 2024 fourth-round pick.[54] He then signed a five-year, $110 million extension with $63.2 million guaranteed.[55] Chubb finished the 2022 season with eight sacks, 39 total tackles (20 solo), one pass defended, and three fumble recoveries.[56]

On January 30, 2023, Chubb was named to his second Pro Bowl, this time as a replacement to Khalil Mack.[57]

In Week 15 of the 2023 season, Chubb recorded seven tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and a recovery in a 30–0 win over the New York Jets, earning AFC Defensive Player of the Week.[58] He suffered a torn ACL in a blowout loss to the Ravens in Week 17 and was ruled out for the season.[59]
