Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan has a Super Bowl to win this weekend. After that, however, his focus will turn to free agency, where he's sure to garner plenty of interest from across the NFL.
Trevathan expects to hear from the Chicago Bears and John Fox, who was his head coach for his first three seasons in Denver.
Via Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post:
Trevathan, a former sixth-round draft pick out of Kentucky, was the Broncos' leading tackler in 2015 with 109 total stops (73 solo, three for losses). He also recorded six defended passes, including two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown. In his last full season under Fox (2013), his stats were even better -- 129 tackles (88 solo, seven for losses), 10 defended passes (three intercepted) and four forced fumbles.
At 6-foot-1 and 240 pounds, Trevathan is an incredibly athletic inside linebacker who excels in pass coverage. The Bears have a glaring need for this type of playmaker in their recently installed 3-4 defense. Trevathan's history and past success with Fox may help them reel him in this offseason.
