Dolphins’ Bradley Chubb inducted into NC State Athletic Hall of Fame

Miami Dolphins pass rusher Bradley Chubb was enshrined in the NC State Athletic Hall of Fame during a ceremony Saturday.

Among the others enshrined were former Chargers and Colts quarterback Philip Rivers and two-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Cullen Jones.

Chubb earned the Bronco Nagurski Trophy, recognizing the nation’s best defensive player, in his senior season at NC State, along with All-American and ACC Defensive Player of the Year honors. He finished his collegiate career with 25 sacks, 54.5 tackles for loss, and six forced fumbles.

In the 2018 NFL draft, Chubb was the first pass rusher off the board, taken by the Denver Broncos with the No. 5 overall pick. During his fifth season with the team, Chubb was traded to the Dolphins as part of a package that sent a 2023 first-round pick to Denver. Chubb subsequently signed a five-year, $110 million extension with Miami.

In 24 games with the Dolphins, Chubb has recorded 13.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles.
