AFC Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Titans


  • Field Yates of ESPN proposes the Packers trade CB Josh Jackson to the Broncos for CB Isaac Yiadom.
  • Yates explains that while Jackson’s career was off to a promising start in 2018, he was a backup player last year who could now benefit from a change of scenery.
  • Yates adds Yiadom was a starter for the Broncos part of last year and has enough raw ability where a change of scenery could really help him.
  • Broncos CB Bryce Callahan has fully recovered from surgery on a broken foot, which cost him the 2019 season. (Aaron Wilson)


Chargers’ new CB Chris Harris Jr. said he’s excited to play with a number of players on the team’s defense. 

“When I see Derwin James, I haven’t played with anybody as talented as Derwin James other than Aqib Talib or Champ Bailey,” Harris said, via ChargersWire. “But, nobody like Derwin James in the way that he can mess up the secondary. I’m excited to play with him, Bosa and Ingram, those guys give me familiarity of what Von (Miller) and D(Demarcus) Ware or Von and (Elvis) Dumervil used to mess up the game.”


Titans’ UDFA LB Khaylan Kearse-Thomas said he really likes HC Mike Vrabel‘s coaching staff and feels they are a “special” organization. 

I really like the coaching staff and what they stand for,” Kearse said, via Crissy Froyd of TitansWire. “They’re building something special in Tennessee.”

Kearse-Thomas added that he likes the “characteristics” of Vrabel and the coaching staff, which was a factor in his decision to sign with Tennessee. 

“I like their characteristics. Everybody I spoke with is very knowledgeable. Coach [Mike] Vrabel is such a smart guy. I really like the way he coaches. It all played a factor in my decision.”

Kearse-Thomas said he enjoys “playing in coverage” given it enables him as a playmaker. 

Playing in coverage is a lot of fun. It allows you to play in space. That gives you a chance to make a big play for your team. Coming downhill and stopping the run is fun because of the physicality involved. They’re both fun in different ways.
