AFC Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Colts


Mike Klis of 9News writes that “something happened” with Broncos QB Paxton Lynch in the final two weeks of offseason workouts.

“His switch was flipped,” Klis writes. “He started to get it. He started to play as if he was doing just that — playing. Playing and not thinking about his protections and hot reads and coverages and delivering the ball on time.”

Lynch mentioned that the increased reps against the first-team defense have really helped him out a lot in terms of his progression.

“I mean the more reps I’m getting with these guys, the more I get to go against the defense and see the looks live compared to just on paper, it’s helping me a lot,’’ Lynch said. “I think each practice I’ve progressively got better.

Lynch added that the competition has made him and Trevor Siemian better players.

“Yeah, I mean it’s been fun,’’ Lynch said. “I think it’s made me and Trevor both better players going through it. Also, I think it’s made the offense even better as well. Us competing, making us play better, making the guys around us play better.’’


Chiefs RB Charcandrick West mentioned during an appearance on “NFL Total Access” that he was caught off guard by first-round QB Patrick Mahomes‘ “cannon” arm.

“Man, this kid can throw the football,” West said. “Man, I mean, I ran I think a slant route and I was like, woah. It was crazy. He’s got a cannon on him.”
