Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer identifies Chiefs second-round LB Willie Gay Jr. as a potential impact rookie this year.
Per the Athletic’s Vic Tafur, Raiders DE Arden Key entered training camp on the bubble but has really clicked with new DL coach Rod Marinelli: “He’s just like the grandpa that you always want who gives you whatever you want but asks a lot from you. You don’t really have a choice but to buy in with a guy like Coach Marinelli because you know you’re going to get better and you know you’re going to get pushed.”
While Key has been impressive, Tafur says Raiders DE Carl Nassib, who signed for $16.75 million guaranteed the next two years, has been quiet during camp
Tafur notes QB Marcus Mariota has not looked sharp and apparently is still dealing with a number of health issues from last year.
