AFC Rumors: Chargers, Colts, Raiders, Ravens

Chargers

Chargers free agent S Tre Boston tells Sirius XM NFL Radio that he would “definitely” like to be back in Los Angeles next year, but he’s willing to see what’s out there for him.

“Of course L.A. is definitely somewhere I would love to be, but it’s a business, everybody knows how that goes,” Boston said. “I want to find somewhere that I fit in well. Somewhere that we have a chance of going to the Super Bowl.

Colts

Colts QB Andrew Luck said he’s looking forward to working with new HC Frank Reich and figuring out his “multiple, attack, up-tempo offense”  offensive system.

“That sounds great,” Luck said, via Colts.com. “I know all the best offenses that I’ve been a part of in my career we’ve not been static and we’ve attacked. And I’m sure he’ll have a great flavor and we’ll involve as many people as we can, and attacking defenses is what it’s all about.”

Going back to his playing days, he’s incredibly successful, and he’s been around some awesome quarterbacks,” Luck added. “And I hope I can learn from him and ask him how Peyton or Carson or Philip did it, and find the best way for me or for whatever Colt quarterback way that is. I hope I can give him the most that I can give, and that he can help me get out of me the most that’s there.”

  • Field Yates reports that the Colts have hired Buccaneer assistant coach Dave Borgonzi as their linebackers coach.
  • Alex Marvez reports that Ray “Bubba” Ventrone (special teams) and Alan Williams (secondary) are joining the Colts coaching staff under Frank Reich.

Raiders

Raiders free agent CB T.J. Carrie tells Sirius XM NFL Radio that he would “love” to be back in Oakland next year.

“Being a bay area kid, definitely would love to be back with the Raiders,” Currie said.

Ravens

  • According to Jason La Canfora, 2018 is likely Joe Flacco‘s last season with the Ravens, as they’ll be able to move on from him next year.
  • La Canfora expects them to move on from WR Jeremy Maclin and RB Danny Woodhead.
  • One possibility to watch for Baltimore, according to La Canfora, could be them showing trade interest in Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders.
  • Jamison Hensley of ESPN writes that if the Ravens are to make a “splash” in free agency as owner Steve Bisciotti said they will, Baltimore will need to restructure some contracts this offseason to create some more cap room.
  • According to Hensley, the Ravens can free up as much as $26.9 million by reworking the contracts of DT Brandon Williams ($5.625 million), QB Joe Flacco ($8.25 million), CB Jimmy Smith ($4 million), S Tony Jefferson ($3.33 million), G Marshal Yanda ($3 million) and S Eric Weddle ($2.75 million).
  • Of this group, Hensley mentions Williams and Jefferson as the two most realistic candidates to work their contracts.
