Danny Trevathan: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Trevathan made his way from Denver to Chicago in free agency, reuniting him with former Broncos coach John Fox and plugging into a three-down role with the Bears in the process. Although knee troubles wiped out most of Trevathan's 2014, he's otherwise been a standout producer, combining for 238 tackles (161 solo), two sacks and five interceptions between 2013 and 2015. While the change of scenery might normally create some uncertainty in a projection, Fox's familiarity with Trevathan means he'll likely be put in the same positions in which he succeeded for Denver.
Trevathan's 2014 season was wiped out by injuries as he played only 99 snaps. He suffered a knee fracture in August and promptly re-injured the knee in two comeback attempts, one in October and one in December. Trevathan, who posted 129 tackles, two sacks, three interceptions and three forced fumbles in 2013, will likely step back into a three-down role with the arrival of defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who has a history of coaxing high sack numbers from his inside linebackers. His durability makes him a little risky, but his upside is considerable.
Trevathan doesn't boast sterling draft or recruiting pedigree, and yet he turned himself into one of the league's better linebackers as a second-year player in 2013. Just one year after arriving in the NFL as a relatively unheralded sixth-round pick, Trevathan established himself as the top pure linebacker on the Denver defense, setting aside entrenched veteran Wesley Woodyard as the team's tackle leader. Trevathan finished the year with 129 tackles (88 solo), two sacks and three interceptions, tossing in three forced fumbles. That well-rounded production of tackles, sacks and interceptions probably isn't a fluke: while he tested poorly in timed drills, Trevathan was wildly productive at Kentucky, posting 287 tackles, five sacks and four interceptions in his final 25 games. With Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware harassing opposing offenses, Trevathan should continue picking off passes at an above-average rate. In addition, Woodyard is now playing for Tennessee, meaning Trevathan might have access to even more tackles than he did a year ago. The Broncos don't have any other tackle threats among their linebackers.
