AFC Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders


Broncos LB Von Miller isn’t thinking about his legacy right now, he’s just focusing on how to help the team win more games.

“There’s so much to be done right now,” Miller said, via “There’s so much to be done with our team, so many games to win, before I can really start thinking about the Ring of Fame. I don’t want those years with Peyton to be the highlight of my career. I think we’ve got some special stuff brewing, I think we’ve got some special games coming. Me personally, I think I’ve got more to prove and more to give to Broncos Country. I think about it. I can’t lie and say I don’t think about going into the Ring of Fame and Hall of Fame and all that stuff, but I’ve still got a lot more to do here, and that’s where my mind is.”


Chiefs LB Willie Gay Jr suffered a season-ending meniscus tear late last season. Gay explained this past week that he still isn’t sure how the injury happened. 

Well I can’t really tell you—I don’t even know what really happened with it,” Gay said, via “I tore my meniscus. I don’t even know if it was at practice or just walking around after.

The good news is that Gay feels he’s now back to being 100 percent. 

“But all I do know is during this offseason period with this training staff, we’ve been working nonstop, me and Ms. Julie (Frymyer) and all her help that she has,” Gay said. “It’s been a real grind and that’s why I’m here today, 100 percent.

Gay added that his focus is on ensuring he’s ready to handle a larger workload in 2021. 

“Really all I want to do is just my job,” Gay said. “Be able to be counted on and just do what I do to the best of my ability. Whether it’s tackling, whether it’s covering guys, blitzing, just continue to improve each and every day on the details of plays and execute every little detail that I do have with my assignments and all.


Raiders’ RB Kenyan Drake is prepared to help the team in any way possible and knows that he can be a contributor in an offense where defenses must “pick their poison.”

“Just adding another playmaker that the defense will have to worry about,” Drake said, via Vic Tafur of The Athletic. “When you have a multitude of guys to cover on the field, it stretches the defense real thin, so you got a guy like Darren Waller, Henry Ruggs III, Hunter Renfrow, (Bryan Edwards and Josh Jacobs), it’s almost like a pick-your-poison type of situation.”

Drake has confidence in his speed and wants to keep working on receiving related footwork this offseason.

“Being utilized in space you got to have good footwork in tight areas off the line,” Drake said. “Working on … receiver-related footwork drills, and that’s what I’m going to continue to do. The speed is going to take care of itself.”

Along with RB Josh Jacobs, Drake believes that he can create a formidable one-two punch for Las Vegas’ offense.

“His running style is definitely infectious, the bruising, physical style, being able to make people miss in space,” Drake said. “And me vice versa, so I definitely feel like we will be able to complement each other, especially with everybody in that room. We’ve got a lot of high respect for everybody in the room and whoever touches the ball, we’re going to be their biggest fans for that play and continue on as the season goes on.”
