Broncos impending free agent ILB Danny Trevathan said that he could see himself talking to the Bears when he becomes a free agent next month.
“I believe I can fit in any scheme,” Trevathan said, via NFL.com. “Coach [John] Fox is one of the guys that gave me the opportunity to showcase I can fit within the scheme. I’m sure it’ll be there, I’m sure we’ll end up talking, but right now my main focus is this game. Whatever happens, happens. This game could make or break my contracts. It’s up to me to make the most of it. I think I’m doing a good job right now and I’m locked in and focused.”
Trevathan also admitted that his contract situation is in the back of his mind, as he prepares for Super Bowl 50.
“It’s in the back of my mind, but right now this is the biggest game of my life,” Trevathan said. “I can win or lose on this game. I know what it takes, I’ve been here before. It wasn’t a pretty one, but I know what it takes and I know what I need to do to get to that next level in my life and on the field.”
Trevathan, 25, was taken in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Broncos. He’s in the final year of his four-year, $2,204,072 rookie contract and will be an unrestricted free agent this March.
In 2015, Trevathan appeared in 15 games for the Broncos and recorded 110 tackles, no sacks, two interceptions with one of them being returned for a touchdown and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 6 inside linebacker out of 60 qualifying players.
