Broncos rookie Bradley Chubb says Denver told him that they considered trading up for his cousins, Browns RB Nick Chubb, in the second round of this year’s draft.

“They told me when I came up here, the next day after I was drafted, they said, ‘If your cousin is still on the board, we might try to grab him,” Bradley said, via Nicki Jhabvala of the Athletic. “That would have been cool. I remember when we were thinking about it, I texted him and I knew his mind was everywhere, but I texted, ‘We’re thinking about getting you!’

“It would have been real cool.

  • Mike Klis reports that the Broncos plan to bench OLB Shane Ray and S Su’a Cravens for Week 15’s game.
