AFC Notes: Chiefs, Colts, Dolphins, & Steelers

Chiefs

  • Adam Teicher writes that the best move for the Chiefs $8.6 million in available cap space could be to save it.
  • Teicher isn’t convinced that signing veteran G Evan Mathis would be an upgrade to what they currently have.
  • Beyond that, Teicher isn’t sure if CB Sean Smith is worth signing to a contract.
  • As for adding a receiver, Teicher believes it would be wise to wait and see what their current group looks like in training camp before considering available options like Reggie Wayne and Wes Welker.
  • Teicher lists G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and TE James O’Shaughnessy as two players worth keeping an eye on in the coming week.

Colts

  • Mike Wells of ESPN mentions that the Colts will need a “deep run in the playoffs” to save HC Chuck Pagano’s job.
  • However, anything short of a Super Bowl appearance could leave Pagano in danger of being replaced, according to Wells.
  • Wells still believes WR Duron Carter has a shot to secure a decent role in the team’s offense, but it will ultimately come down to him beating out Donte Moncrief and rookie Phillip Dorsett for playing time.

Dolphins

  • James Walker of ESPN expects Jamar Taylor to win the starting job at cornerback opposite of Brent Grimes.
  • Walker believes veteran G Evan Mathis would be a good fit with the Dolphins, but Miami is reportedly concerned about overpaying for him.

Steelers

Regarding a holdout, Steelers WR Antonio Brown put the idea to rest by tells reporters on Saturday that they “never go well.

Holdouts never go well. Just look at history. It always ends badly,” Brown said, via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. “It wouldn’t be the best decision. I make a lot of money. I pull up to camp in Rolls-Royces.

According to Brown, his focus remains on helping the Steelers win in 2015.

“What I’m here to do today is show how hard I’ve been working, showcase that I can still be the best in the world and help my team win football games,” Brown said.
