Chubb and Miami agreed to a five-year, $110 million contract extension on Thursday, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported. The Dolphins later announced the signing.
Chubb’s new deal includes $63.2 million in guaranteed money and a maximum value of $111.25 million with incentives, per Pelissero.
With Chubb’s remaining rookie salary included, the value creeps toward the $120 million mark, landing at just under $119 million through 2027.
On the last day of the NFL trade deadline, the Miami Dolphins made a headliner move by acquiring star linebacker Bradley Chubb from the Denver Broncos.
Fresh off that trade, a new Bradley Chubb contract appears to have been inked, with the former Bronco getting paid and then some.
Less than two days after the blockbuster trade, Miami and Chubb agreed to terms on a long-term deal.
Chubb and Miami reached a consensus on a five-year, $119 million extension that includes $63.2 million guaranteed for the ex-Bronco.
The sum is a massive step up from his rookie contract, which came in at $6.8 million a year.
A deal was expected to get done sooner rather than later as Chubb was set to become a free agent in the 2023 off-season.
Usually when a team acquires a star player during their contract year for a big trade, they sign them to a long-term deal during or shortly after the trade is official.
As for general manager Chris Grier and the Dolphins, they got the deal done early and locked up their star linebacker for five more seasons.
Chubb will be paid an average of around $22 million per season on his five-year, $119 million deal, which makes him the third-highest paid linebacker in total contract value.
Khalil Mack currently has a contract of six years worth $141 million, while Joey Bosa has a total contract of six years worth $135 million.
Chubb’s $119 million ranks right above T.J. Watt’s four-year, $112 million contract.

For the first four years of his run with the Denver Broncos, Bradley Chubb had a front-row seat to watch Tyreek Hill simply have his way.
Overall, Hill finished his run with the Kansas City Chiefs with an astounding 11-0 record against the Broncos.
For Chubb, he used to “hate” Hill after regularly watching him orchestrate standout performances against the Broncos while donning a Chiefs jersey, but now, he is “happy” to be a teammate of the six-time Pro Bowler.
“I used to hate that dude,” Chubb said during his introductory press conference with the Dolphins on Thursday. “Not going to lie to you. Not because of the person he is. Just because of the team he was on and all the things he did against us and stuff like that.
Chubb and Hill are now on the same team after the Miami Dolphins went all out to acquire the versatile pass rusher ahead of this year’s NFL trade deadline by electing to ship off Chase Edmonds and two draft picks to Denver.
Now, as Chubb will once again have a front-row seat to watch Hill, he plans to simply appreciate the all-around wideout this time around.
“I’m going to level him up every time he throws out the peace sign and I’m going to do it too,” Chubb said. “It’s going to be a good time. I’m excited.”
