Bradley Chubb is a proud man this year.
The 5th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft has been balling out during the 2020 season, and it gained him a Pro Bowl invite. He recorded 42 tackles and 7.5 sacks through 14 games.
The 24-year-old couldn’t contain his emotions speaking to reporters on Monday.
“Went through a lot this year,” the 24-year-old told reporters Monday with tears streaming down his face. “This for sure feels good.”
Chubb tore his ACL in 2019 and rehabbed for months to get him back to this point.
“I remember after — when I got the news about the ACL, I called my dad crying,” Chubb said while wiping away tears. “I was a little emotional going through it.”
“And — I’m sorry — he just told me to keep my head on straight, put my head dead and keep on working. And, that’s what I did, man. The accolade is huge.”
