Former NC State All-American Bradley Chubb Traded to the Dolphins

Published

on

Former NC State All-American Bradley Chubb has been traded from the Denver Broncos to the Miami Dolphins.

Last week, expectations began to rise that Denver would trade Chubb, with the Broncos likely not making the playoffs this year, and the former Wolfpack star set to become a free agent at the end of the season.

The Dolphins traded their 2023 1st round pick, 2024 4th round pick, and Running Back Chase Edmonds, and the Broncos gave up Chubb and a 5th round pick in the 2025 NFL Draft.

Adam Schefter also noted that the Dolphins are expected to work out a longterm deal with Chubb soon.

Chubb is in the final year of his rookie contract (4 years/$27.3 million, with a 5th year option that was picked up this year for $12.7 million) with Denver, who drafted him with the 5th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Though Chubb has battled injuries in his first 5 seasons in the NFL, he has been productive, picking up 26 sacks and 33 tackles for loss in 49 career games.

Through 8 games this year, Chubb has 26 tackles, 5.5 sacks and 4 tackles for loss.

Denver is struggling, Miami is looking promising. Nice landing spot for Chubb and probably a better market for his endorsements.

Published

Former NC State Guard Terquavion Smith earned a spot on the 2023-24 NBA G-League All-Rookie Team.

Smith averaged 22.3 points, 3.4 assists and 3 rebounds per game for the Delaware Blue Coats. What’s crazy, is that he only started in 3 of the 36 games he played in. With that being said, he averaged 30.7 minutes per game. Smith shot 35.6% from three.

As a 2-way player, Smith also played 16 games for the Philadelphia 76ers, averaging 3.3 points in 5.3 minutes per game. He shot 37.1% from three.

NC State LB Payton Wilson Visited with the Steelers Yesterday

Published

on

Former NC State Linebacker Payton Wilson had a Top-30 visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday. Wilson is the first Linebacker the Steelers have brought in.

Wilson has already had Top-30 visits with the Dallas Cowboys and the Carolina Panthers.

PFF ranks Wilson as the #1 Linebacker in the 2024 Draft, and #26 on their Big Board.

1. LB PAYTON WILSONNC STATE

PFF BIG BOARD RANK: 26

Wilson has the length, movement ability, IQ and tape of a first-round linebacker. What will likely keep him from being drafted on Day 1 is his injury history and age. If healthy, he can be a starting inside linebacker in any defense. (PFF)

Will someone take Wilson in the 1st round? Will he be a 2nd round pick? If he slips past that, that’s just stupid.

A post shared by DJ Horne (@djhorne)

Horne is trying to become the first Wolfpack player to be drafted since Dennis Smith Jr. was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks with the 6th pick in the 1st Round.

While Horne might not currently be projected to be drafted, he is trying to change that tune at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament which begins tomorrow.

Horne is a special player, and genuinely possesses the skill set to compete at the next level. Whether he is drafted, or signs a 2-way contract, what he put on tape this year warrants a chance.
