Broncos turned down several offers to stay pat and draft Bradley Chubb, including one from the Colts

Recommended Posts

Would have rather had Chubb, but I'm super happy with Nelson. He's gonna be great. 

 

Also, the flavor of this story likely depends on who you ask. Colts sources after the draft said the Colts called and felt the Broncos price was too high; this story says the Broncos wouldn't consider moving down. Don't know which is true, might be a combination of both, and we'll most likely never know the details of the conversation.

I am not sure what to believe when it might have come from Elway's mouth. Had Cleveland not been stupid (IMO) Chubb would not have been there.

I agree with you. Cleveland passing on Chubb? Did us a big favor. Nelson is and will prove to be an outstanding addition to the Colts. Might not have been there otherwise.

I’d argue that Nelson has the much higher upside over Chubb so I’m good with landing Nelson. Chubb I see as a player who will make a few pro bowls as a nice complimentary peice to Von Miller. Nelson I see as the pillar of our OL and a multi All-Pro guard.

Ballard said he got wind that Cleveland was taking Ward the night before the draft. If he really wanted Chubb, Cleveland was the team to call, not Denver. Colts would get Chubb, Denver would take the trade and Cleveland would still get Ward. Im happy with how things worked out. I feel Nelson is much safer. Also I'm not sure Denver's 3-4 scheme maximizes Chubb's skillset but im sure he'll be fine for them.

    • One, there is no such thing as a white lie.  Either it's a lie or it's a truth, IMO.  But anyway.   it very well could be the team is being creative with their wording to try and protect themselves, or it could be completely truthful.  I've seen it in my own non contact practices... someone runs to get in position, pulls up right then someone trips or cuts or jukes right then and the person that pulls up gets caught in it gets knocked to the ground and slams their head off the turf.   Creative wording aside, I am sure the NFL will( have already) investigate(d), they will not make a decision by how the team discusses it to the media.
    • I’m not saying the eagles are a monster but they’ve been built through the draft and bringing in young talent. That “monster” I speak of is what we are doing bring in competitive competition to build and feed of each other like the eagles did .... the eagles weren’t the best team in the play offs nor in the SB .... plus they didn’t have their starting QB but because of what they had built and brought in they were a monster and thus my reference ..... wether they win 1-2 more doesn’t matter IMO .... they’ve built there team right and made the right calls/players like I believe CB, and our staff can, is and will do.
    • Well if he is worried about his health, he is bashing a Belichick 3rd rounder
    • Offense:  Me (center) Defense: My son (OLB)   I don't think we'd help the team at all but it would be so cool to play for the Colts and be the only father/son tandem in the NFL.
