Denver Broncos general manager John Elway turned down a king’s ransom and stuck to his guns when selecting defensive end Bradley Chubb fifth overall in the NFL Draft. Time will tell if that turns out to be a brilliant decision or a lamentable what-if plaguing Elway and the organization for years to come.
For now, Chubb is living the life one leads before hopefully becoming a football superstar. He’s traveling coach, resigned to the middle seat, and fielding awkward questions from fellow fliers.
Oh yeah. That’s how you know it’s going to be a good flight. Nothing says smooth sailing like having one’s knees jammed up to the chest and hearing about yourself from a person who doesn’t know you’re … yourself.
