The Dolphins pursued players for immediate impact on their roster. Their biggest deal was with the Denver Broncos and brought Pro Bowl pass rusher Bradley Chubb.

Miami sent the Broncos running back Chase Edmonds, as well as a 2023 first-round draft pick and a 2024 fourth-round pick in exchange for Chubb and a 2025 fifth-round pick.

Chubb logged 5.5 sacks, 26 combined tackles, two forced fumbles and a pass defensed in eight starts this season. He joined the team as the No. 5 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

"This was a difficult decision that involved many considerations as we work to build a championship team," Broncos general manager George Paton said Wednesday in a news release.

"We have great confidence in our players, including a talented group of pass rushers, and this trade brings us significant draft capital to continue improving our roster."
