AFC Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders



When asked about Broncos’ first-round WR Jerry Jeudy and third-round KJ Hamler, OC Pat Shurmur said spreading the ball around to “six or seven” receivers usually leads to successful outcomes.   

“I really do think you have to spread the ball around,” Shurmur said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post. “Typically, in games that you win and play good offense, when you look at the stat sheet at the end of the game, there’s probably six or seven guys that caught passes and there’s probably two or three guys that ran the ball.”

  • The Athletic’s Mike Sando lists the Broncos as a team that should pursue free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick. When Sando polled NFL evaluators in 2016 before Kaepernick’s protest, he was generally seen as a high-level backup. 


  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer mentions Chiefs HC Andy Reid as a member of the $10 million a year in salary club among NFL head coaches.


Around 30 Raiders players have been gathering at a public park in Las Vegas for 90-minute workouts. TE Darren Waller talked about the mindset of the team in an interview on Sunday.

“There has been some good competition this last month, with everybody pushing each other,” Waller told The Athletic’s Vic Tafur. “It’s been real productive. Knowing where you end up in certain routes. The quarterback gets a feel for how you do things against certain looks, and that only comes from repetition, trying new things and challenging yourself. This time is especially important for the young guys who don’t have the normal OTA periods. This is the foundational period for what type of season you want to have.”
