AFC Notes: Bills, Broncos, Raiders

     

Bills

  • WGR 550’s Sal Capaccio says the biggest question for the Bills offense in 2020 will be if QB Josh Allen can continue his strong trend of protecting the ball in the final 3/4 of the season. 
  • At running back, Capaccio notes it’s worth watching how quickly third-round RB Zack Moss can work his way into a contributing role. 
  • Capaccio writes there should be a stiff competition for the fourth receiver spot between Bills rookies Gabriel Davis, Isaiah Hodgins and returning WRs Robert Foster, Isaiah McKenzie, Duke Williams, Andre Roberts and Ray-Ray McCloud
  • Capaccio adds to keep an eye on Bills TE Dawson Knox for a second-year jump. As a third-round rookie, Knox had 28 catches for 388 yards. 

Broncos

The Broncos were largely deprived of seeing a second-year breakout from LB Bradley Chubb last season after a torn ACL ended his 2019 campaign after just four games. Chubb has been making good progress in his rehab and Broncos DC Ed Donatell says he’s running at full speed and ready to improve upon his 12-sack rookie year in 2020. 

“He’s just good in all areas,” Donatell said via Aric DiLalla of the team’s website. “He’s such a solid, consistent person in all areas of his life. He’s just got a lot of skill and ability. But this is a [player] that’s going to be a great Bronco for a long time; we just didn’t get to see enough of it last year, because of the injury. We’ve seen him running on tape, and he’s full speed and ready to go. You’ll see a really good year from him.”

Raiders

The Raiders are tying up all of the loose ends as they finalize their move to Las Vegas this season. A large chunk of players have already made the move and are gathering outside after meetings at a public park to work out and practice together. Raiders TE Darren Waller said the experience in the triple-digit temperatures of the Nevada summer have been “real productive.”

“We can deal with extreme temperatures, we go right at it and we work, no excuses,” Waller said via the Athletic’s Vic Tafur. “I feel like that can pay dividends for us in the season, knowing that we can go into any kind of environment, hot or cold, and do our thing.”
