AFC Notes: Bills, Broncos & Raiders

Bills

  • According to Joe Buscaglia, the three receivers worth keeping an eye on in regards to the Bills’ No. 3 receiver job include Leonard Hankerson, Greg Salas and Dez Lewis.
  • Of the three, Buscaglia believes Salas is the favorite to win the job this summer, considering that he appeared to have won the trust of the coaching staff last year. Salas also offers quickness, route running, and good hands.
  • Other players in the mix for the job include: Greg Little, Jarrett Boykin, Marcus Easley, Marquise Goodwin, Kolby Listenbee, Gary Chambers, and Davonte Allen.
  • Buscaglia could see the Bills targeting a veteran offensive lineman once teams begin trimming their rosters.

Broncos

  • According to Andrew Mason, Broncos QB Trevor Siemian has a “legitimate shot” at winning the starting quarterback job this summer.
  • Mason also noted that if Siemian were to be named the starter, the offense would likely use “a bit less” no-huddle and hurry-up, opting for a more traditionally-paced offensive attack.

Raiders

Steve Wynn, a billionaire casino mogul who owns the Wynn Las Vegas Resort, told TMZ that he’s actively working to help bring the Raiders franchise to Las Vegas.

Absolutely love it,” Winn said, via TMZ. “I’m really, really working hard to make sure that can happen. I’m really a big booster. I think having the Raiders in Las Vegas is the perfect thing to complement the city and to give everyone another excuse to come to Las Vegas.

  • According to Bill Williamson of Today’s Pigskin, the Raiders have a meeting scheduled for Monday with the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee in Las Vegas as the two sides work toward an deal on a proposed dome stadium in Vegas.
  • Williamson mentions that the Monday meeting could be significant in regards to the Raiders’ hopes of relocating the franchise to Vegas. They are, however, looking to find a suitable stadium site near the Las Vegas Strip.
  • With a site picked out, it would help the two parties pinpoint a more specific total for the stadium project. A few weeks ago, the city proposed a public contribution of $550 million toward a stadium, which is is significantly short of the $750 million the Raiders and the NFL are looking for.
  • According to Williamson, there are still some involved with the plans to relocate the Raiders to Vegas who are hopeful that they’ll be able to reach agreement at some point.
