AFC Notes: Broncos, Jets, Patriots



  • Troy Renck reports that Broncos DL Adam Gotsis will continue to practice as the Fulton County Georgia district attorney remains undecided about whether to press charges for an alleged rape that occurred five years ago.
  • Renck mentions that OLB Shane Ray has everything to play for this season after the Broncos declined to pick up his fifth-year option, even if it means moving on next year.
  • According to Renck, fourth-round WR DaeSean Hamilton has the easiest path to seeing snaps this season as a slot receiver.


  • While Rich Cimini of ESPN admits that there are some notable similarities between Jets first-round QB Sam Darnold and Mark Sanchez, he cites a comment from Todd McShay who point out that Darnold had a much weaker supporting cast during his time at USC than Sanchez and Matt Leinart had.
  • In addition, Cimini believes that Darnold is a “more instinctive player” than Sanchez and proved to be more successful during broken plays.
  • Cimini says that if Darnold is given the time to develop, he should have no trouble sticking around longer than Sanchez.
