AFC Notes: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Hayden Hurst, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders


Former Panthers TE Hayden Hurst signed with the Chargers this free agency, and he cited the familiarity within the offensive coaching staff and scheme as a driving factor.

“For me, it was kind of a no-brainer to come here,” Hurst said, via Valentina Martinez of the Chargers Wire. “[Chargers General Manager] Joe Hortiz, [Chargers Offensive Coordinator] Greg Roman, [Run Game Coordinator/Tight Ends Coach] Andy [Bischoff], getting back into the Harbaugh system — that’s who drafted me and brought me into the league, gave me my first opportunity”

“It’s a lot of broad strokes from the Baltimore days — 2018-19, when I was there. They’re reliant upon their tight ends, the receivers have to get open. It’s going to be a hell of a run game. It’s just cool seeing that playbook pop up there, familiar words, just kind of getting back to my roots.”
