AFC Notes: Chiefs, Dolphins, Jaguars, Ravens


  • According to Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs restructured OLB Tamba Hali‘s contract in recent days.
  • Rapoport adds that Hali received a $250,000 signing bonus and $1 million of his 2018 salary converted to a March 1 roster bonus.
  • The Chiefs officially ruled out OLB Dee Ford and WR Albert Wilson for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.
  • Veteran OLB Justin Houston is listed as questionable for Week 9 with a knee injury.


According to Armando Salguero, former Dolphins HC Joe Philbin actually pushed for the team to draft QB Derek Carr a few years ago to replace Ryan Tannehill.

As Salguero explains it, there was a developing rift between then GM Jeff Ireland and Philbin. In an attempt to save both his job and that of OC Mike Sherman, Philbin blamed the team’s offensive issues on Tannehill and then pushed for the team to take Carr in the first round of the 2014 draft.

Miami ultimately drafted OT Ja’Waun James.

  • The Dolphins list five players as questionable including QB Jay Cutler, WR Devante Parker, OL Jermon Bushrod, DL William Hayes and DE Andre Branch.
  • Dolphins HC Adam Gase has said that Cutler and Parker will play this weekend. (Barry Jackson)
