This season has started off far from expected for the Denver Broncos. After a busy offseason, this team sits at just 2-5 with major injury concerns bringing down this talented roster.

Now it turns out Denver could potentially part ways with one of its top players if this year continues to go down the drain.

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, EDGE Bradley Chubb may be traded if the team doesn't win in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. With the Nov. 1 deadline quickly approaching, it seems the Broncos would want to get back assets to retool for next year rather than attempt to crawl out of a 2-6 hole.

Denver's 2022 campaign is in serious jeopardy of turning into a lost season. Multiple key players have been knocked out for the rest of the year with major injuries, leaving behind a shorthanded group of starters on both sides of the ball.

Despite his team's struggles, Chubb has led the charge for this top-ranked defense. He's already racked up 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and eight QB hits off the edge for the Broncos. A premium pass-rusher like the former No. 5 overall pick could fetch a handsome return of draft capital to spend on acquiring talent in the offseason.

With a major question mark at quarterback, it's unclear who will get the nod ahead of this pivotal Week 8 game. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds peg Denver as a 2.5-point underdog in London.
