Bradley Chubb aims to follow Von Miller’s example as team captain

·1 min read

The Denver Broncos announced their team captains for the 2022 season earlier this week and outside linebacker Bradley Chubb is among them.

Chubb is following in the footsteps of ex-Broncos captain Von Miller, who helped mentor Chubb and the team’s other younger pass rushers during his time in Denver. Chubb will now aim to follow Miller’s example.

“I learned a lot from him,” Chubb said Tuesday. “[He’s] a guy who has seen the peak of Super Bowl success and [being a] Super Bowl MVP. Even him — he was the same guy on the practice field every day. You knew what you were going to get from him.

“He was always a teammate-first guy and I feel like the things he did — inviting people to his house or giving someone the shirt off his back — he was always the prime example of how you want an older guy to treat the younger guys. I just try to follow that.”

Miller was traded to the Los Angeles Rams mid-season last year and he now plays for the Buffalo Bills, but he’ll always be a Broncos legend. Chubb’s on-field production might not ever reach Miller’s level, but he could certainly emerge as a similar leader on and off the field for Denver’s defense.
