Heck no. Both are more or less on 1 year deals, depending. Keep em and roll with them. They dont have to start and can rotate in and come off the same edge with Chubb.

A wasted pick, now they are going to let a player go, or sit. I loved the SB 50 team, but 4 times out of 52 a defense won a championship.

Not sure you pay $3M to a 3rd string OLB. Not many good pass rushers in this draft. Move Barrett now if you can.

Elway went with his strength and drafted defense. Looks like a great pick to me.

Or...you keep the dude and have a deeper rotation.

Elway can only stay sober for so long. He called it a night after Chubb.

They don’t make it out of those playoffs without Ware and Von together.

This was a fanstastic pick. Their guy was Darnold and he wasn’t there. Trading down would’ve been a disaster.



Chubb is the Browns “could’ve had ED REED!!!!”

They got the best defensive player in the draft, probably best player in the draft at that pick...

Best player available, ****ing nailed it... now you have options, depth, or a valuable commodity to market to other teams...

Sorry, but one year is the shelf life of a great championship defense. one yea Bears, one year 84. Bucs one year, 02. Ravens was as much Flacco as the defense.

A great offense can make you contenders for a decade They aren't making rule changes to make it harder to score points.

Von got doubled, all the time, pass rush was a very underrated need.

I would have liked the Bills offer for more capital but cant argue Elway passing it up and taking Chubb.
