The 2017 Bronko Nagurski Award is also in Chubb’s trophy case. The Bronko Nagurski Award is awarded to the player named the most outstanding defensive player of the year in the college ranks.
Miami Dolphins GM Chris Grier Speaks to the Media
Miami Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier met with the media today to discuss the trades. On Chubb and talks with Denver,
“He’s a 26-year-old, a player at a premium position, a very good football player. We had some very casual conversations a couple of weeks ago about it, but probably until like the last couple of days, when they (Denver) got back from London, things really heated up.”
In case you missed it, here is Grier speaking with the media on the Chubb Trade as well as Wilson.
On a side note, Chubb will wear #2 for the Dolphins. He was number #55 in Denver, but Jerome Baker wears that number for Miami. Tell Dolphins Thirsty how you
