The NFL trade deadline was a busy one for several teams, including the Denver Broncos. After weeks of speculation, the Broncos traded Pro Bowl pass rusher Bradley Chubb to the Miami Dolphins.

This prompted an immediate reaction from his teammate Dre'Mont Jones, who was clearly not thrilled with losing a talented counterpart.

Jones states that he understands football is "a business" and he's required to "buy in" for the organization that he's currently playing for, but that clearly doesn't ease the pain. "This one hurts my heart like no other. Gameday won't feel the same without [Chubb]."

The two have been teammates since Denver drafted Jones back in 2019, just one year after Chubb joined the organization. Jones did not provide the same immediate impact as his longtime teammate, but finally cemented himself into the starting lineup this season. The result has been a team-leading 5.5 sacks.

Chubb also racked up 5.5 sacks in that span, meaning Jones could have a tougher time getting after the quarterback without another defender all offenses must target in pass-blocking schemes.
