AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders


New Broncos OC Bill Musgrave explained that he’s planning to take a “much cleaner” approach towards the team’s offensive scheme moving forward.

“We’re going to try to be much cleaner in our approach,” Musgrave said, via “Take care of the football, take care of the quarterback and be explosive when the ball is in our hands. … Like a teacher, find out what that student’s champion is and play to that strength. And that’s what we’re going to try to do as coaches: Think players first, then plays and play to our strengths.”


  • Ian Rapoport reports that new Chiefs CB Darrelle Revis‘ two-year contract includes “significant” team-based incentives.
  • A source tells Rapoport that Revis can earn $1.75 million if he plays in an AFC Title Game and an additional $1.75 million if Kansas City wins the Super Bowl.
  • These incentives won’t be offset by the money owed to Revis by the Jets, according to Rapoport.


Raiders HC Jack Del Rio explained that he just felt like he had to “shake things up” in regards to the team’s defense, which is why he elected to fire Ken Norton Jr earlier in the week.

“I really felt like I needed to shake things up,” Del Rio said, via Josh Dubow of the Associated Press. “We couldn’t continue doing what we’ve been doing to this point. I made the call. The whole idea is to change what we’re doing.

Del Rio stressed that no one should feel comfortable right now based on how they’ve played this season.

“I know one thing: Nobody should feel comfortable because what I’ve been watching is not good enough,” Del Rio said. “Nobody should feel comfortable.”
