The Denver Broncos are preparing for the biggest game of the season, but one player discussed his future for a brief moment on Wednesday. Inside linebacker Danny Trevathan was asked about his free agent plans after the season and his answer will make Chicago Bears fans happy.
“Coach Fox is one of the guys that gave me the opportunity to showcase I can fit within the scheme,” Trevathan said on Wednesday. “I’m sure it’ll be there, I’m sure we’ll end up talking, but right now my main focus is this game.”
That’s good news for the Bears who are in desperate need of help at the linebacker position, especially inside. Trevathan was a sixth round pick by the Broncos in the 2012 NFL Draft and spent three seasons under Fox in Denver. The 25-year-old started 15 games for the Broncos this season recording 73 tackles, two interceptions and a touchdown.
The Bears will likely be in touch with Trevathan when the free agency period begins on March 12th but for now he’s preparing for the chance at winning his first Super Bowl.
