AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs



Broncos executive VP John Elway said Monday that Gary Kubiak will be with the team in next year and they’re still trying to figure out what his role will play.

We’ll see. We’re still in that process,” Elway said, via “We still have a lot of things to go over before that, but I think it could be where it is, it could be on the offensive side [as a coach]. We’ll see what that role may be, but Gary will be around.”

In an interview with Mike Klis, Elway said he knows he’s a target for criticism after the latest failures.

“It’s part of the job,” Elway said. “I get that. That’s my job. If we don’t win, I’m as much a target as anybody else. I don’t have any expectations that I should be held to any other standard than anybody else in this position and has my role.

My path, my history here in Denver does not have anything to do with what’s going to happen going forward. I get that. We won five and six games the last two years and it’s my job to get that fixed.

  • Broncos CB Chris Harris says he sees a “big tidal wave” coming in terms of the team’s roster: “I think everybody who won the Super Bowl is pretty much (on) a non-guaranteed contract now. So I expect everybody to be gone, really. I expect to probably have two or three vets on the team and I think we’ll keep moving like that. That’s how I see it. I see it as a big rebuild coming on. I see a big tidal wave coming.” (Denver Post)

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said TE Hunter Henry (knee) will need to prove he’s ready to return for them to activate him from the PUP list.

“We want to give a good look at him this week to see where he’s at,” Lynn said, via “I like the progress that he’s been making, but he hasn’t played football for a long time — since last December … so it’s been a while. He’s going to need to really show us that he’s ready [to play].
“I believe that the knee is stable. We did some things last week and thought he looked really good. Now, it’s just about conditioning, the chemistry with the offense and just playing football.
