AFC Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders



  • Per KUSA’s Mike Klis, Broncos LB Todd Davis and second-round WR KJ Hamler returned to practice in pads Tuesday. 
  • However, the two worked to the side and weren’t full participants in practice, though they appear to be trending up. (Troy Renck)
  • Broncos HC Vic Fangio said OLB Bradley Chubb is still working his way back. Chubb tore his ACL a little under a year ago: “That last 5-to-10 percent is different in full recovery. I am not going to put a limit on it. So we will see.” (Renck)
  • Broncos LB Mark Barron‘s one-year deal is for $2.5 million with $1 million guaranteed. (Ryan O’Halloran)
  • Broncos TE Troy Fumagalli had a procedure on his abdomen to clean out a bacterial infection that developed in a suture from an old surgery. He should return to practice very soon. (Klis)


  • Per the Athletic’s Daniel Popper, Chargers DC Gus Bradley says 2019 second-round DB Nasir Adderley has “caught their eye” as they explore replacing S Derwin James: “We’re looking at options and we’ll do that for the next couple days.” 
  • Chargers DE Melvin Ingram said he wanted to try and resolve his contract situation as quietly as possible by holding in instead of holding out: “As long as my teammates see me here, I’m never going to make nothing about me. I love the guys out here and I want to see everybody succeed.” (Jeff Miller)


  • According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, Chiefs HC Andy Reid‘s new deal makes him among the NFL’s highest-paid coaches. 
  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer says Reid is one of eight coaches who are paid around $10 million per year. 
  • Fansided’s Matt Verderame reports the Chiefs have interest in former Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette now that he’s cleared waivers.  
  • Verderame adds the price would have to be right as Kansas City sees Fournette as a backup to first-round RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire.


  • According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Raiders WR Tyrell Williams is having surgery to repair his torn labrum which will sideline him six months, which is why Las Vegas put him on injured reserve. 
  • Raiders’ HC Jon Gruden addressed QB Marcus Mariota missing his second straight practice: “He’s going to be OK. He will probably be out for 3 or 4 days.” (Vic Tafur)
