The NFL saw a flurry of activity in the hours leading up to Tuesday's trade deadline, including a big deal between the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos. Denver traded away pass-rusher Bradley Chubb to the Dolphins, who finally addressed an underperforming pass-rush unit.

Chubb was one of a few expected trade candidates, although the Broncos front office was able to net a solid return. The return included a pair of future draft picks and one player poised to make an immediate impact, running back Chase Edmonds.

Denver's running back room is still hurting from Javonte Williams' season-ending injury, but the room added another depth piece through this Chubb deal. Raheem Mostert quickly took over Edmonds' Week 1 starting role, but the latter still provides a great threat on passing downs. Edmonds owns more than 130 career receptions across five seasons in a backup role.

The Dolphins also sent Denver a 2023 first round pick and a 2024 fourth rounder for Chubb.

Denver's running back depth chart now includes Melvin Gordon III, Edmonds, Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack. The cast of veteran players will try to continue filling the gap until Williams' healthy return next year.
