The Denver Broncos head into a potential "make or break" Week 8 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. It lines up perfectly just days ahead of the league's trade deadline, and leaves the 2-5 Broncos in a a potential spot to be major sellers.

One of the names circling through trade rumor lists is veteran defensive end Bradley Chubb. The fifth-year pro already has 5.5 sacks to his name and adds an elite talent to playoff teams in need of an upgrade.

Broncos general manager George Paton is fully aware of the trade rumors and weighed in on the situation Thursday morning.

Paton said he wouldn't specifically comment on Chubb's future, but "we want to keep all of our core players and he's a core player."

Clearly holding his cards close to the chest, Paton was not willing to come right out and say Chubb in on the trade block. But, if the Broncos fall to 2-6, there's next to no hope they can turn things around for a playoff run. It'd be wise to flip the 2023 free agent into future draft capital especially considering the price he should warrant.
