Bears ILB Danny Trevathan has been diagnosed with a ruptured right patellar tendon, and is done for the season.
It's the worst possible news for the 26 year old. As Victor Cruz can attest, a torn patellar tendon is arguably the toughest injury to come back from, though Jimmy Graham provides a hopeful example. The injury at least comes at the right financial time, as Trevathan inked a four-year, $24.5 million contract last March. He's unlikely to be ready for the start of training camp, and is legitimately questionable for Week 1 2017. Trevathan was having a strong season playing all three downs. The Bears are going to be ludicrously thin for the final five weeks. Nov 28 - 2:30 PM

Coach John Fox said after the Week 12 loss to the Titans that ILB Danny Trevathan is believed to have a "serious" knee injury.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bears think it's an ACL injury. The Bears can't catch a break. Their season has already gone off the rails. Fellow ILB Jerrell Freeman was just slapped with a four-game suspension this past week. With Trevathan sounding like he's done for the year, this Bears defense will only get softer. Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers visit Chicago next.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is undergoing thumb surgery, but is expected to return this season.

An excellent coverage 'backer who makes plays in all phases, Trevathan is arguably a bigger loss than Jay Cutler. For now, Trevathan should be considered likely to miss at least two games, and probably 4-6. The fact that he's not going on injured reserve suggests his absence won't be any longer. A key free agent signing, Trevathan's loss further thins Chicago's rapidly deteriorating defense.
Sep 20 - 1:19 PM

Bears agreed to terms with ILB Danny Trevathan, formerly of the Broncos, on a four-year, $28 million contract.

Trevathan was a sixth-round pick back in 2012, but turned into a strong starter for the Super Bowl champions. Coach John Fox was in Denver when the team drafted Trevathan. In Chicago, he'll call the plays and be the new linchpin in the middle of DC Vic Fangio's 3-4 defense. Trevathan was PFF's No. 6 inside 'backer last season, getting plus marks for his run defense and coverage.
Mar 9 - 4:16 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter the Bears and Falcons are making the "strongest push" for free agent ILB Danny Trevathan.

Reports have the Bears offering Trevathan a four-year deal. ESPN's Vaughn McClure has "heard" Trevathan is seeking more than $7 million per season. Both teams need talent infusions at linebacker.
Mar 8 - 7:52 PM

According to Raul Martinez of FOX 31 Denver, it "sounds like" the Bears have offered a four-year deal to free agent ILB Danny Trevathan.

The money is unknown, but it wouldn't be surprising if Trevathan pushed for $8 million annually. Inside linebacker was by far Chicago's biggest defensive weakness last season, and inside linebacker is a key position in Vic Fangio's 3-4 defense, where he had Patrick Willis and Navorro Bowman in San Francisco. The Bears look like the early front-runners to land Trevathan.
Mar 8 - 3:04 PM

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs reports the Titans and Bears could be interested in free agent ILB Danny Trevathan.

Trevathan has also been linked with the Falcons. Trevathan was drafted by Bears coach John Fox in Denver, and the Titans have plenty of money to splash around in free agency. Trevathan is Rotoworld's No. 2 available inside linebacker.
Mar 8 - 9:57 AM

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure reports free agent ILB Danny Trevathan is "high on the Falcons' radar."

Current Falcons defensive coordinator Richard Smith is Trevathan's old position coach in Denver. Per McClure, "word is" the Falcons are willing to pay $5 million to $6 million per year to upgrade their linebacker corps. Atlanta is expected to face competition from the Bears for Trevathan's services.

Broncos GM John Elway concedes free agent ILB Danny Trevathan will "probably" hit the open market.

Elway has called re-signing Trevathan a priority, but he simply has too many other in-house free agents to juggle. Von Miller and Brock Osweiler are the priorities, followed by Malik Jackson. A 2012 sixth-rounder, Trevathan bookended an injury-ruined 2014 with stud 2013 and 2015 campaigns. NBC Denver believes Trevathan will end up walking in free agency.
Feb 25 - 5:02 PM

Broncos GM John Elway said re-signing impending free agent ILB Danny Trevathan will be a priority.

Denver should retain restricted free agent ILB Brandon Marshall on a one-year tender, but keeping Trevathan around could prove more difficult. The Broncos are about to shell out a huge contract to Von Miller, need to fill a likely hole at quarterback, and want to retain DE Malik Jackson as well. Trevathan recorded 109 tackles and intercepted two passes in 2015.
Feb 9 - 12:15 PM

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan admitted he could "end up talking" to the Bears as a free agent next month.

Trevathan was drafted by now-Bears coach John Fox in Denver. "Coach Fox is one of the guys that gave me the opportunity to showcase I can fit within the scheme," Trevathan said. "I'm sure it'll be there, I'm sure we'll end up talking, but right now my main focus is this game. Whatever happens, happens." Trevathan started every game this season and received strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run defense and pass coverage. He'll be 26 next month.

ILB Danny Trevathan has lost his battle with Brandon Marshall to be the Broncos every-down inside linebacker.

Trevathan may have recorded more tackles than Marshall in both games so far this year, but Marshall has out-snapped Trevathan 54 to 32 in Week 1, and 60 to 38 in Week 2. Sell high on Trevathan if you own him, as his fantasy production is not sustainable while playing less than 60 percent of snaps each week. Marshall has solidified himself as a dependable LB2.

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan (kneecap) is healthy for the beginning of training camp.

As is Brandon Marshall (Lisfranc). It's great news for a Broncos linebacker corps that was ravaged by injury last year. Trevathan proved to be a difference maker in 2013 before injuries limited him to 100 snaps last season. He'll be an every-down player for Wade Phillips' defense.

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan (knee) has been limited during offseason workouts.

"I'm limited," Trevathan said. "I can’t do too much movement, but it’s good for me." Trevathan recently declared himself 100 percent, but he's still not fully recovered from his knee issues. When healthy, Trevathan projects as an every-down inside linebacker in DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme.

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan participated as the team opened offseason workouts on Tuesday.

Trevathan recently declared himself "100 percent" recovered from a barrage of severe 2014 injuries, and his spring participation confirms it. One of the NFL's most underrated linebackers when healthy, Trevathan should be a full-time inside linebacker in new Broncos DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme. At age 25, Trevathan is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
