- Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com wouldn’t be totally shocked if Paxton Lynch isn’t a Bronco by the end of the summer.
- According to Breer, the Broncos rated each of the top four quarterbacks in this year’s draft class higher than Lynch and if Chad Kelly is able to continue to show progress, it’s possible Denver will move on from the former first-round pick.
Chargers QB Philip Rivers says he would like to play “a handful more years” in the NFL, but he isn’t sure about playing into his forties.
“I’m super excited about a handful more years,” Rivers told me. “I don’t have a number in my head. I laugh when I hear Drew, Brady’s already 41, when I hear them say mid-40s, I go, ‘Y’all can have that. I have no desire to get there. One thing I am thankful about is I know what I’m gonna be doing when I’m done. I’m gonna be coaching high school football somewhere, maybe the very next season.
“It could be two, my contract’s up in two, but I’d like to get in that new stadium. Could it be four, five? I don’t know. I feel good. I don’t want to hang on, but I don’t feel like I’m there by any means right now. I want to stay aware, so when it does become that, I’ll know. And it’s a two-sided deal—they have to want me to still be here when it gets to that.”
- Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins left practice early on Monday with a hip injury. However, Ian Rapoport reports that this was just precautionary and the injury is not considered to be anything major.
