Denver Broncos: Free agent wish list for the 2022 NFL season
2022 Free Agent Wishlist
3. Chandler Jones, EDGE, Arizona Cardinals
Chandler Jones might end up in the Hall of Fame one day. Jones is perhaps the most underrated player in the entire NFL. He is a sack machine and would give the Broncos pass rush an insane boost.
While Bradley Chubb is good and Jonathon Cooper may end up being good himself, Chandler Jones would bring another dimension to the team’s defensive skill.
Jones, a 4-time Pro Bowler, 2-time All-Pro, and Super Bowl champion, has compiled 106.5 sacks in his career and had as many as 19 sacks during the 2019 season.
He missed most of the 2020 seasons due to injury but has rebounded nicely in his age-31 season. He has 24 QB hits this season, which is the third-most of his career.
Jones is giant; he’s 6-foot-5 and weighs 265 pounds. Along with Bradley Chubb, these two would form one of the best pass rush duos in the NFL.
The Broncos are in clear need of pass rush help, and while guys like Malik Reed and Stephen Weatherly have been fine, they are by no means quality starters, and Chandler Jones clearly presents a massive upgrade over anyone currently on the Broncos.
