Denver Broncos: Top 5 storylines to follow at 2021 training camp
2. Von Miller & Bradley Chubb
There is no question about the fact that the Denver Broncos have one of the best pass rushing duos in the NFL in Von Miller and Bradley Chubb.
After picking up Von Miller’s large contract option in 2021 (which I’m not so sure Miller expected to happen), will we finally get to see this duo on the field really for the first time since 2018?
In 2019, Chubb suffered a season-ending knee injury.
In 2020, Miller suffered a season-ending ankle injury.
Since Vic Fangio came aboard, one of the most exciting possibilities was what the combo of Miller and Chubb could do together, and we just haven’t seen it but for four games, one of which Chubb was playing with that torn ACL (Jacksonville, 2019).
Chubb was selected to the Pro Bowl last year after racking up 42 total tackles, 7.5 sacks, 19 QB hits, and 34 pressures in 14 games.
If both of these guys can stay healthy, they are going to be a terror for opposing offenses. The Denver Broncos have plenty of talent on the interior defensive line that can capitalize on the attention Miller and Chubb will receive, but these two guys are going to be hard to neutralize if they can each play 70 percent of the snaps or more.
First things first, though — get these two stars through camp unscathed.
