But there's a lot that we got to keep track of. So I got to have all my wits and my senses about me for these next few hours. Everything from NFL trade deadline to World Series Game 3, to college football playoff rankings and the latest suspensions in the Michigan-Michigan State tunnel brawl, to yet another chapter in the story of the Brooklyn Nets in this recent era. But Steve Nash bowing out. It's after hours on CBS Sports Radio. We're live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.
Do you need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family? Rocket can. The Nets started two and five under Steve Nash this season, but it wasn't that long ago after their win over the Pacers on Monday that he was relatively hopeful. Played hard or willing to do the extra things, the little things, especially the entire group at the end there. Guys playing a lot of minutes and playing a team that flies around, played with pace and fly around and they stuck with the task, played for each other, rebounded the ball better and did so many things better. So I'm really proud of the group's effort. I am not sure there's ever been a coach asked to handle more than what Steve Nash has in two plus years with the Nets. But that relationship is now over and done with, and I wonder how he's sleeping tonight.
Maybe he's relieved. You can find me on Twitter, Alaw Radio. We've got a couple of questions out there for you. Well, you can send your questions for Ask Amy Anything, which is next hour, and then also we want to know which teams around the sports world create an actual tangible home field, home court, or home ice advantage.
So on Twitter or on Facebook, you can reach us through the next few hours and even when we're not here in studio. For now though, we're pleased to welcome back to the show, Nets and NBA insider Brian Lewis of the New York Post. Let's begin with your reaction, Brian. You're around this team all the time. What did you think when Steve Nash and the Nets decided to go there separate ways? I thought it was a little ahead of schedule.
I think everybody that was around the team. Well, listen, going back to when Kevin Durant came out and told ownership that he wants Steve Nash gone, we thought at some point Kevin's going to get what he wants because he always does. But this was a little ahead of schedule. I think those of us that were around the team figured, there's a chance that when they end this next upcoming road trip, Steve Nash might not be the coach. This was even quicker than I personally thought. Do you believe Sean Marks when he says this was a mutual decision?
To some extent, yes. I mean, I do believe that Steve was acutely aware that not only was the team not performing the way it should have been, but that his messaging may not have been getting through. I think he probably realized it hasn't gotten through by now. It probably isn't going to get through. Now, as far as would he have been willing to coach further and try to see if he can, I don't know, reach the correct people. Oh, gosh.
Maybe. Why even bother starting the season with him as the head coach, if this was the direction it was going? I asked Sean Mark that question and I didn't really get a concise answer. If you thought that this was the right move in training camp, then why isn't it the right move now? I suppose their contention is that they gave it at least some opportunity, during the regular season, pre-season and regular season. And it was obvious that the team was not going in the correct direction, that they were backsliding, and that they weren't getting the production that they had hoped for. But I think it was fairly obvious that the primary party, Kevin, Tyree, et cetera, they were not clearly responding, shall we say.
You referred to a message or Steve's message. Can you summarize that? Well, listen, we understand that this team is gifted offensively, but throughout all of Steve's tenure, they haven't had great individual defensive players. This year's team actually has some players that can play individual defense, and yet they've still been horrific defensively. And I don't just mean in terms of physicality, I mean in terms of sacrificing for each other, in terms of being locked in.
Alright, nobody plays a 48-minute game, but locked in for as close as 48 minutes as possible. And that means being mentally aware in the right position, following the game plan and not pulling away from it at the first sign of trouble. These are all things that go into being a championship team or at least a contending team, and the Nets had proven unwilling to do almost any of them. So these are the kind of messages that Steve was trying to get across, trying to drill into people's heads, and it wasn't getting through. So in your opinion, is it because that message was coming from Steve, or is it because the group, the chemistry, still isn't right with the players themselves? That unfortunately right now is impossible to answer, and I suppose we'll find out shortly.
I mean, I would say this. Jacques Vaughn is the interim. Again, good guy, former NBA head coach, two-time interim, so I guess he's the Nets' version of Herb Williams.
And he's been their defensive coordinator since E.M. Aedoka left, all right? So I don't know how much is going to change under Jacques Vaughn. If it changed under Jacques Vaughn, it's not going to be tactical. So that just shows you they just didn't want to play for Steve.
Now, we don't know how many games Jacques Vaughn is going to get as the interim, and I don't think it would be time to make any significant tactical changes anyway. So we will see once the permanent head coach comes in, whether this was the messaging or the messenger. Brian Lewis covers everything that is the Nets and their winding road for the New York Post.
It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS Sports Radio. The headline on your column about Steve Nash's 10-year ending includes the word mercifully and then in quotes as things came to a head. Are you referring to on the court, or does this include everything that's been happening with the Nets like the Kyrie Irving situation? Well, I don't consider the Kyrie Irving situation over. And even when it is, there'll be another one. When I'm saying came to a head, I mean Sean and Steve, whoever friendship that goes back decades, they've been in constant communication. That's not a new thing. So we're talking about communication over the past week about these guys aren't responding, they're not hearing what I'm saying.
I can't drag out of them what I'm trying to drag out of them, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. And I'm saying those conversations finally came to a head and they decided the far ways. The name out there is Imayudoka, as you've referenced. And he was a part of the staff before he took that Celtics gig. We know what happened with Boston, kind of, at least the fact that it seems like the Celtics were not interested in bringing him back once the suspension was handed down. What does it take to get him released from Boston and back in Brooklyn? I don't think it will take that much. I do not think this is a situation where Boston would hold Brooklyn hostage in terms of draft compensation and so forth, which, at least to me, tells me if you have a youngish coach who just led your team to the NBA finals and you are willing to let him go to a division rival that is loaded with talent and you're willing to let him go with no sort of compensation, that would terrify me as to what I'm not seeing.
That would scare me that I'm only seeing the tip of the iceberg. But I don't know. I don't know what the Celtics know. I don't know what it is that we don't know. But I don't figure it will take a ton of compensation to free him from the rest of his contract and get him to Brooklyn.
I don't think that's going to be a difficult hurdle, it's clear. Neither of us can speak to the details. And there's only a handful of people who actually know what happened. The Celtics keeping that under wraps. But in terms of basketball, we know what an impact E-May had on the Celtics, especially in the second half at the point at which they were 500. He focused on the defense, obviously the Nets' major weakness.
And they took off like a meteorite and they were able to reach the NBA finals. The team really responded to him and there is a pre-existing relationship with some of the Nets, at least with the organization. What do you know or what do you remember about covering him with the Nets?
I think it would be challenging to find a better fit. I will tell you that players respond to him. Players not just liked him, but they respected his coaching acumen. They respected the work that he had put in as a player. And I'm not necessarily talking about being a guy who's going to walk into the Hall of Fame on a cloud like Steve was, but just the fact that this was a guy who had been through the grind and understood, okay, fine, he understands what it is to be a player, but he also understands what it is to be a coach and work his way up as a coach. And they played for him. And as far as his defensive mind, he was a solid defensive mind in Philadelphia. He was a guy who learned from the best in Popovich.
He made a Nets team that was devoid of defensive players, looked halfway respectable defensively when they played and reached the Eastern Conference semi-finals against Milwaukee. So I don't think there's any question as far as his coaching acumen, any of the questions regarding Ime or Doka, none of them are involved with his ability to coach. Brian Lewis of the New York Post is with us after hours on CBS Sports Radio. So we'll wait to find out how that drops and when, because it sounds like it could happen fairly quickly in this exchange with Boston. But getting back to the team, the last time you and I spoke, we were in the throes of Kyrie, whether or not he would pick up his option, and then boom, right on the heels of him doing that, Kevin Durant asked for a trade. You already mentioned this conversation that he had with Josiah about trying to get Steve Nash and Sean Marks ousted. That didn't happen.
So here we are, one big happy family, though minus Steve Nash. Is all of that forgotten, Brian? And by whom? By the team? I don't know, by the locker room, by the general manager, by the owner, are they just agreeing to let all of that be in the past? I don't think they have a choice. Here's the thing.
Good point. They don't have better options. Kevin Durant's not a fool. He looked around at the landscape and he realized the Nets are not giving him away for nothing. And he also realized that if the Nets could extract even close to the price that they wanted, the team that he's going to is going to be a picked over cartoness and he's going to be playing by himself. And the Nets, they never wanted to trade him. They grudgingly did their due diligence and said, okay, what's out there that we could pry away from other teams, what's our asking price, what could possibly be our guess? And then they looked and they said, none of these deals are to our liking. It's an uneasy marriage.
You might say it's a marriage of convenience, but it's certainly better than the option. And I think all sides realize that. Wow. It's just amazing to me that so much happened. And yet the only person that ends up on the outside looking in is Steve Nash.
Yeah, that's about the size of it. Brian, what about this situation with Kyrie? I don't know that it falls on the Nets. Maybe it does.
Maybe it doesn't. It seems like we haven't heard much from the NBA. I know he deleted the tweet with the link to this particular movie that's been inflammatory to Jewish groups and we've seen some people sitting courtside who are protesting. Are you expecting anything else to happen with Kyrie and the team or the league?
Well, correct. We have not heard much from the league. The league had a statement which conspicuously did not name Kyrie. The Nets had a statement which conspicuously did not name Kyrie. Finally, today, the players union had a statement which did not name Kyrie. The only person, flesh entity, that named Kyrie directly was Nets owner Joe Tsai.
And that came on Friday, which was after Joe had spoken to the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League personally. So I would say where it stands now is nobody has suspended Kyrie. Nobody that we know of had fined Kyrie. The Nets haven't benched Kyrie or sat Kyrie. It should be pointed out. If anybody tried to suspend Kyrie or even find Kyrie, in all likelihood, the union would react strongly. He's been vice president of the union since 2020.
So it's fairly obvious that they would react strongly to that. That doesn't mean that you can't fit Kyrie. You don't have to suspend him. You could suspend him. But if you figure that's a bridge too far and you don't feel like dealing with the legal drama, you could just simply have him be a DNP coach's decision.
You could say, we're arresting him. We played him 40 minutes the other day, and he took a lot of punishment. We're going to rest Kyrie for his own good. And when Sean Marks was asked, was that in the cards, no, apparently not.
It's very interesting that he said today, he acknowledged that Kyrie's nine minute conversation in the post game didn't go well and that they weren't having him speak to the media until quote, cooler heads prevailed, unquote, and to let the situation simmer down. There's certainly nothing to stop them from taking the same tact with his playing time. Right.
Right. So they could then, if they're giving him a break from the big bad media to let things simmer down, to let cooler heads prevail, they could give him a break from his playing time, but they're not doing that. So I wouldn't expect to see anything happen. Now what I would tell you is that it is feasible that he could sit down and have a meeting with the ADL.
That's not impossible. I gave report that he sent part of his delegation to meet with the ADL. I don't know whether a personal one-on-one meeting is going to follow up. I suppose that could depend on how well this initial meeting went. I would say this entire situation isn't over. I'd say it's ongoing and this is something that's probably not going away immediately.
We could still be following the story a little while from now. Where in the world does basketball fall in all of this? Brian, it seems like it's such a low priority. Unfortunately, that is the case. You're not wrong. You're not wrong. The Nets do drama far better than they do basketball right now. That is the line, Brian.
That is the line. The Nets do drama far better than they do basketball right now. I'm going to have to use that over and over again, but don't you worry. I'll give you credit. You can find Brian on Twitter at New York or NY Post, underscore Lewis, covers both the Nets and the NBA for the New York Post.
Gosh, we've got to stop meeting like this. At some point, we'll just talk actual basketball, Brian, but I appreciate your time as always. Anytime.
Thanks for having me. There are still more questions than answers, but at least the Brooklyn Nets chapter, authored by Steve Nash, is now officially done. Steve was a consultant in different organizations prior to taking this job with the Nets. He was with the Golden State Warriors.
They've been known to take people back after they try other jobs, so we'll see if that happens. He's still a well-respected man, and I can imagine there are some people who actually feel sorry for what he's had to go through over the past couple of years. He didn't ask for this, but he did take the job. This is the NBA, but he didn't ask for all of this.
I also appreciate what Brian had to say about Kyrie. Not only is this not the end, because we haven't had any definitive response from either the Nets or the NBA or the Union other than these vague statements, but if it's not this, it'll be something else with Kyrie. If they tried to bench him or keep him away from the team for a while, there's always the chance that as volatile as he is, he just takes off, because that's what he does.
He reserves the right to disappear for long stretches of time without telling anyone, so you're dealing with essentially an emotional powder keg. We haven't heard the end of that part, but I've got to wonder if there's some relief for Steve Nash tonight. Maybe.
I mean, no doubt there are questions about what did I do wrong, what could I have done differently. He's highly competitive. He's very intelligent. He lives in this basketball world.
I know that would be me. Gosh, where did I go so horribly wrong? What should I have done differently? The second guessing, the replays, but there's also got to be some relief. It's no longer his problem. He no longer has to sit in front of the media and compensate and justify. Nope.
He can breathe.

So it's third and 16 at the Chicago Nineteen. Fields in the gun, back to throw, Parsons coming, he flushes out left, he stops, he dumps it short to the 25, still moving Montgomery, fumble the ball, recovered by Dallas, Micah Parsons is on the ball, he's still running, he's still moving with the ball, to the 10, to the 5, to the goal line, Parsons recovered a fumble and brought it all the way back. The San Francisco 49ers, the Seattle Seahawks. What a drive led by Gino Smith.
The Carolina Panthers. Walker remains in the gun, three man rush, takes the snap, drops back, rolls to his left, his flush, loads up, airs it deep downfield for D.J. Moore, behind his man, boy, got the ball, D.J.
Moore, caught the ball. How did that happen? Touchdown Carolina, this is amazing.
How did that happen indeed? We don't often include touchdowns for our TD of the week poll that weren't for winning teams or game winners and man it looked for all the world as though P.J. to D.J. would be a game winner in that battle of the NFC South as it turns out D.J. Moore incurs the penalty for taking off his helmet, the extra point is missed, they go into overtime and ultimately the Falcons win that game but it was one heck of a throw from P.J. In fact, none other than Patrick Mahomes described today's the best touchdown throw in the NFL this season by far. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio.

We're also taking your questions for Ask Amy Anything and we've got another kind of show question out there which I think is interesting when you think, when you consider or think or watch what's happening with the Phillies who have definitely carved out a home field advantage that is formidable through the course of the last month here in the playoffs.

He was not with us on Halloween night, but you had a monkey and a banana to take care of and then I forgot the dinosaur, no. What was the other? Grim Reaper. Grim Reaper, that's right.
It fits so well with a monkey and a banana. So how was your trick or treating experience on Halloween? Awesome, I'm going to give you this little story and preface it by saying I realize I'm completely out of shape. However, go into the little Halloween party for my son in the morning, which is cool, like you just go and you stand, they walk around and then they go inside, it's like 20 minutes. School? Yeah, after school, yeah. They just walk around like the little parade thing and you get to see all the kids in the different costumes and it's fun. So it's like, oh, me and my wife, it's only a half a mile. I'm like, I will walk, take the stroller, you know, my daughter, she's only two, okay, walk half a mile there, walk half a mile back. No problem. Not a big deal, right?
This is my workout for basically the weeks. So that's about good for me, right? So then after school is done, the plan was we were going to meet at one of the parents' house, like 12, 15 kids, they were all going to go trick or treating together, you know, friends from school.
Sure, no problem. So we go, my wife, take my daughter, who's the monkey. My son, the Grim Reaper, they go, they start walking, I'm thinking we're going around the block, right? Like, where are we going? Trick or treating? But, you know, 20 minutes away, all right, and we'll get done. So I didn't bring the stroller, nothing, we're just walking, hour and a half later. I'm like, at some point I'm holding, my daughter's about 32 pounds roughly in a full monkey costume. It's 67 degrees.
I got my flannel because like, oh, it might be chilly. Yeah. Oh my gosh.
I'm pouring sweat. We've gone at least two miles. I have no idea where the hell we are because we're in a neighborhood now, should I know my neighborhood better than this? Of course.
I don't. So who's carrying all the candy? My son is running from house to house with the other kids.
So they're like flying. We're wind up. I picked up my daughter because she was walking the first couple of houses.
We wound up like six behind. I'm like, all right, I got to get her because we're never good. She's two. I'm going to go. So I picked her up and I'm trying to walk a little bit faster. I'm at least four houses behind. And that's with every once in a while, one parent somewhere along the line yelling, slow down.
Stop. Can you wait till you get to the end? The kids were out of control running, which I'm glad they're having a good time. However, my fat ass was exploding in sweat and I thought I was going to pass out holding my daughter by trying to carry it.
That sounds like fun. Here's what I found out. And this is what I was unaware of. There's a muscle in the front of your shin.
I was unaware. This thing still hurts now. Every time I put my foot down, I'm trying to just bend it out a little bit because they are both completely and totally shocked.
They're barking at you. I feel like I'm going to, my shin and my calf are going to explode with every step I take. Oh no. Yeah. Now, obviously I got to get into shape. I'm aware of that. However, it's a good opportunity right here.
It's a good start. Not in one day, nor should I be carrying in 30 plus pounds. That's in a full monkey costume in 65 degree weather where I was sweating.
I can't believe you're wearing one of your signature flannels profusely. Oh man. Again, I was, I thought we were going around the block.
Yeah. I'm like, Oh yeah. We'll walk hand in hand. I'll go to the door with, you know, my wife's like, Oh, I'm the banana. I'll go up there with my daughter.
That's you know, the monkey makes sense. Okay. Yeah. I'll stay back.
We got one house. I'm looking up. I'm like, whoa, we're way behind. I got to pick her up and then gone two miles later, two miles. I'm not kidding. You miles. I'm not kidding.
Not kidding you. Two miles. It took us about an hour and a half to two hours. And I had to go somewhere else afterwards.
I had to go to my parents to be my sister and my nephew. We were late obviously because I thought we were going to be done in like 45 minutes to an hour. So we got back to the car.
It was almost like finding, you know, gold and they were like, come on in. I'm like, no, no, no, no, no, no. There's no in, you know, in the car.
Let me sit down. I got to get out of here. Oh man. Luckily we didn't have to go trick or treating after that.
I was thrilled with just the one. Oh my goodness. Well, what about your son? How did the grim reaper do? He was awesome. He had a good time. He got a full, I mean, bucket. I can't even explain how much candy he got.
Where is it? Did you bring some for us? Jay loves candy. I would love to say I'm going to, but I can't, I did notice that he, while he was doing his homework today, when he came in from school, all of a sudden I looked up and I'm like, bud, what are you doing? And he's like, oh, I got the bucket in case I want some. I'm like, how many of you had?
No, no, no. You can't have, he brought the whole bucket up with him by his, in his room while he was doing homework. And he's just like picking at it. I'm like, yeah, no, bro.
What would you have? Like six? I'm like, that's enough.
I'm like, you're done for the day. You thought it was all his? It is all his. I'm not going to take it from him, but you can't have it in one day.
You're eight. You can't have it in one year. Really? Well, which we said to him when he first got it, we're like, this should last you till next Halloween. Yeah.
The thing is enormous. I mean, I can't. So you can't share any with us? With you? I don't want to hear him.
No. How's he going to know if there's like five pieces missing? You'd be stunned. He's eight. This is all he's got. Come on. Nah, he's got you wrapped around his finger.
That's true, but he's well aware of you to honestly, if you took one out because he was saying it the other day, you also like his attack detective. He looks through the garbage and he says, like, uh, why is there a rapper? I'm like, I don't know. I asked your mother. Like I didn't take it.
I'll be, I'll tell you if I take it, I'm not going to hide it from you. I don't know. Yeah. He's like me with my sports illustrator. When I was a kid, I hid them in my closet, but they were stacked up in order. I knew exactly how they were arranged.
If my brother went in there and tried to steal the swimsuit issue, I knew when even a page was out of place. Yes, I do. He knows anything that's out of order in the house at all times. Wow. He's got a beautiful mind. Yeah.
I don't know if it's like an OCD thing or if he truly is just kind of like very observant and doesn't like, I don't know, but he knows if you, if you move something and it's his, he knows where it is, where it should be. Okay. Yeah. So now I have to be like detective on the other side of it.
So if I move something, I got to know where it was so I could put it back in the right spot just because basically I'm lazy and I don't want to hear about it. That's all it is. There's a guy I don't want to hear about it. There's enough stuff during the day.
I don't need this. No, that's fun though. I'm glad that you survived and got some exercise and your son had a blast and the monkey did too.
Yeah. She had a good, I was stunned that she actually put the monkey suit on and she had a good time for the whole thing. I was surprised because my daughter can, I mean, she's two. So she could be in her moods. She was great the whole day. She's female.
We can all be in our moods. She's two. I mean, like, you know, her favorite word is no.
So like, I get it. It's fine. I was concerned that she was going to be a holy mess through the whole thing. She was great during all of it. The only thing that I didn't like was every once in a while was, you know, Mads, can I put you down?
And she just left me. No. All right. No. No, Daddy.
I'm done walking. Thank you. That was pretty much it. Yeah. And it was kind of like, you know, she wasn't concerned that I was going to pass out.
That's not her problem. No, that's really sweet. I kind of feel like this is good for you. It's a good place to start.
You already kind of broke the seal, got back into exercise. Let's go. Yeah. Probably not.
Okay. That'd be cool and all. But let's be realistic. You could do it. A walk around the block every day.
Look at that. Let's just keep it up. I'm more than cool with walking. Two miles, two hours, holding 30 pounds worth of fur. All right.
So dial it back up. Fur. Fur. It's fur.
I don't know. It was hot. It's what it was. Yes. No doubt.
I sometimes remember that's how my dog feels when it's hot because she's wearing not only an undercoat, but a full hairy coat on top of that. Well, we're glad you survived. You're here. I still say you could probably sneak us a few pieces of candy. Yeah. I don't need to hear that.
I'll buy you candy before I worry about, yeah, I'll get a bag and bring it in. I don't need to hear. Nice.

It was Bradley Chubb. Trubisky in the gun, Najee stands to his left, wide side to his right, double slot that way.
Long count gets a snap. He's back, fires for the end zone, touchdown, take it, playful, wow. Jamal Williams, the single back behind Goff, Goff turns, fakes to Jamal, rolls left, throws, end zone, caught, touchdown Detroit Lions, TJ Hockinson.
Oh, that hard run fake did it again because his Goff rolled, he saw 88 all by himself. This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. It was a fairly busy, active NFL trade deadline. We'd seen a couple of moves leading up to Tuesday afternoon, but bigger names moving just before the deadline expired. On Broncos radio, Dave Logan, Pittsburgh Steelers radio, Bill Hillgrove, and then Dan Miller on Lions radio. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports radio. Certainly if you want to call, you can. There's a lot happening in the world of sports, the net situation, which doesn't have anything to do with Kyrie and his personal drama that he's created on his own.
I hate to call it that because it makes it almost makes it sound like it's light and it's funny and none of it is funny. It's definitely complicated as it usually is with Kyrie, but that's happening. We've got the first round of college football playoff rankings, the World Series game three. And then of course we've got the NFL trade deadline. And so I want to dive into that, some QB news at the top of the hour, but let's get to some of the bigger moves.
Here's Tom Palacero on NFL network. The Broncos trading away pro bowler Bradley Chubb to Miami. Bradley Chubb was the name that kept coming up that everyone believed was going to be traded. Just because of how Denver had approached these things, it became apparent that they had a first round pick on the table.
It was really a matter of hammering out the rest of the compensation. So they also pick up running back Chase Edmonds in the deal. That's not unsubstantial considering the losses that they've had at the position this year, with Javante Williams going down. Of course, you've had to bring in Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack.
Melvin Gordon has dealt with a variety of different injuries. So you get another guy who was productive in his days in Arizona here, but really this was about for Denver, making sure they could replenish the stockpile of picks. They give up a lot to get Russell Wilson. Now they get a first round pick back, depending what direction things go for the 49ers who the pick originally belonged to. This could end up being a lower pick in the first round, but it's more capital for the Broncos here as they move forward. And moving on from a guy who, if he had stayed in Denver, was going to get a massive deal that is expected to be upwards of $20 million per year.
You know, it's the business side, I don't really understand that. It sucks at the moment, but just because of guys, I'm leaving back the relationships I've built over these past couple of years. Just like walking into this facility every day, it's going to be different, so going to a different one. But I'm excited about the new journey guy, for me and my family, so I'm looking forward to it. Kind of just all coming to a halt, you know what I mean?
Earlier today, I was kind of up in the air, how I should feel and stuff like that, so now it's good to be in the right state of mind and understand what the task of the hand is now and just go out there and execute. That's Bradley Chubb, and he is honest about his emotions and having mixed emotions as the Broncos trade him away to the Dolphins. That's from the YouTube channel for viral news. So as he was leaving the Broncos facility, there were microphones that were stuck in his face. As Carlos Sarrow indicates, this was about draft picks. It was about the Broncos trying to make up for the number of draft picks they traded away in the Russell Wilson deal.
Oi, could that get any worse? I hate this for the Broncos. Their defense was what was giving them a chance to win games, keeping them in games. They already let Von Miller go last year, and Bradley Chubb, an outside linebacker who had learned underneath Von Miller was making a major impact when he was healthy. There were a couple of stints where he was not healthy, but the Broncos wanted to get picks back, and so they do get a package that includes a first round pick next year, and it's one that Miami had available because of a trade with the San Francisco 49ers. Miami also brings in Jeff Wilson, so 49ers, a separate deal, but they get a fifth round pick in exchange. And Jeff Wilson is very familiar with Mike McDaniel, of course, because McDaniel was there as the offensive coordinator in San Francisco. And then Rahee Mostert, who used to be his backfield mate there in San Francisco, right? So now you've got two former Niners running backs who are with Mike McDaniel on the Dolphins staff, and Wilson's had a huge impact already, close to 500 yards this season. So those are some bigger names, but yes, the Chase Claypool caught me off guard a little bit.
This one I wasn't expecting. He ends up with the Chicago Bears, and here's their general manager, Ryan Poles. I am excited about this player. I really like the way that our offense is starting to come together and move. I thought it was important to add another impact player to our offense to go along with the guys that we currently have in the receiver room right now. I like the way Justin is trending, and I think adding another big body whose physical, explosive, great leaping ability can stretch the field, but also is violent with a ball in his hand as well as a blocker.
I think that enhances everyone around him. I shouldn't say I wasn't expecting it. His name was certainly out there.
It was still a little bit jarring to see it though, because of all the transition around the Steelers offense, and there's this idea that the Steelers are kind of waving the white fly, but I don't believe that I'm up like Tomlin, and I think the rookie Kenny Pickett needs more options, not fewer, but the Steelers in exchange get a second round pick, and that's Chicago's own second round pick, and so it could be a relatively high pick.
