Bradley Chubb was easy to find last year. Right outside linebacker. Two-point stance. Period.
And it worked for Chubb, who was selected fifth overall by the Broncos. He led all NFL rookies and was tied for 14th overall with 12 sacks (also a franchise rookie record).
But more should be expected from Chubb this year and more will be required for the Broncos to climb into AFC West contention.
“Overall (improvement), that’s what you want to see,” general manager John Elway said recently. “Even though he played very well his first year, you (should) see a big jump in confidence.”
To help fuel the next step, new coach Vic Fangio may have multiple new wrinkles for Chubb.
