“I’ve been a football fan my whole entire life,” Miller said, via BroncosWire.com. “Even when I was in the league, I’ve been a football fan. I’m constantly scouting guys, looking at guys, and when we got Teddy, I felt like that was a great move. Teddy’s ready to come in and play. Teddy’s ready to come in and compete. I think that’s what we need in the quarterback position. I’m not saying that this guy’s going to be the No. 1 guy, or this guy’s going to be the No. 1 guy. I’m not saying that yet, but we have a healthy quarterback competition that can only give us positive things out of that group. Teddy’s been a great vet for a long time. He’s been able to play and lead his teams to wins. It’ll be great to have him in there with Drew and Brett Rypien and just push the guys. I’m just excited. They’ve got a lot of weapons there. Teddy will be the guy that will push that quarterback group.”
- ESPN’s Adam Teicher notes the Chiefs are making a leap of faith at No. 2 receiver, as none of the candidates for that role — Mecole Hardman, Byron Pringle, or Demarcus Robinson — have done it consistently before.
Raiders QB Derek Carr said the team has a certain bar it needs to reach in order to be a championship contender.
“There’s a certain level of championship effort we need to get to,” Carr said, via Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “There’s a certain level of championship finishing that we have to do. If we can do that, I believe the sky is the limit for us.”
- According to Vincent Bonsignore of The Las Vegas Review-Journal, with DE Yannick Ngakoue on board, DE Maxx Crosby may see fewer snaps, which could lead to him having a strong season due to the fact that he is in great physical shape.
- When it comes to the injury sustained by rookie S Divine Deablo, HC Jon Gruden reiterated his hope that Deablo would be ready for training camp, as he was present throughout OTAs and minicamp.
- Bonsignore expects that the Raiders are likely close to being finished adding players after the signing of veteran LB Darron Lee and RT Sam Young.
