The Dolphin’s defence just got a massive boost with the former fifth overall from the 2018 NFL Draft making his way to Miami. The trade that has been looming over the heads of the NFL for the last week now, but Miami pulled the trigger to acquire the edge-rusher.
What the trade shows more than anything is Miami is fully committed to Tua and the process they currently are in. Their offence is flying high and with the acquisition of Chubb to their defensive line, opposing offences now have another rusher to worry about.
Overall I like this trade for the Dolphins. They give up a late first rounder and a back-up running back to get a game changer at a premium position. The next part of the deal will be how they tackle Chubb’s contract.
Denver have traded away a huge piece of their defence no more than seven months after they seemingly were going all in for a Super Bowl win.
Overall, I don’t mind the compensation they got for Chubb, considering he was on an expiring contract but the timing of this deal makes no sense from an outsider’s perspective.
Denver went all in when they traded for Russell Wilson and things haven’t started quite how they would have liked. But they are just coming off a win heading into the bye week and it seemed like a good point to turn their season around.
Now they have traded away one of their biggest stars on their defence, which is the best unit in the league for future draft capital. It’s a massive risk.
