AFC Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs

     

Broncos

  • The NFL and NFLPA are discussing a 2021 salary cap floor of $175 million, which is down from the $198.2 million this year. It’s possible that the figure could be pushed higher, depending on the revenue losses incurred by the league from the 2020 season.
  • Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap.com projects the Broncos to have $29,077,049 of cap space next year, assuming the cap is set at $175 million.
  • KUSA’s Mike Klis writes that despite both Broncos RBs Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay having strong pedigrees as 1,00-yard rushers, Gordon’s contract suggests he’ll be the clear No. 1 back ahead of Lindsay. 
  • Klis notes that if Lindsay can improve his ability as a receiver, that could be his path to more touches and snaps in 2020. 

Chargers

  • The NFL and NFLPA are discussing a 2021 salary cap floor of $175 million, which is down from the $198.2 million this year. It’s possible that the figure could be pushed higher, depending on the revenue losses incurred by the league from the 2020 season.
  • Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap.com projects the Chargers to have $73,768,409 of cap space next year, assuming the cap is set at $175 million.

Chiefs

With the last pick of the first round, the Chiefs elected to take RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire as another addition to an already stacked offense. Edwards-Helaire broke out last year in a wide-open LSU passing offense and the Chiefs saw a lot of ways in which the dynamic back could be a threat in Kansas City as both a runner and a passer. The rookie agrees that he landed in a perfect fit. 

“Ultimately I’m just really happy to be here,” Edwards-Helaire said via NFL Media’s Grant Gordon. “This is my happy place. I’ve been doing this — I’ve only been on the earth for 21 years and I’ve been playing football ever since I was 5, so this is what I do. I can’t wait, everything, the setup, everything about everything here is perfect for me and I can’t wait.”
