AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders

     

Broncos

Broncos HC Vic Fangio says the team has a lot of flexibility with DB Kareem Jackson and can move him around from slot corner to safety.  

“It gives us a lot of options,” Fangio said via the Athletic’s Nicki Jhabvala. “Just from week to week we might be able to line him up where we feel he best fits to defend the team we’re playing. He’s smart enough to learn all the different positions. He’s proven it in games and on tape that he can execute the positions, not just know what to do, but play them competitively and at a high level. It’s a big advantage and it helps when you’re looking at other players that you have guys that can move around.”

  • Broncos second-year WR Courtland Sutton said he’s ready to continue being the team’s No. 1 receiver as Emmanuel Sanders works back from a torn Achilles: “The No. 1 role, you can’t go into a game and have one or two catches. You have to go into a game and be that guy. I accept that role.” (Pro Football Talk)
  • Free-agent addition CB Bryce Callahan, who primarily played nickel corner in Chicago, could also mean more time playing outside corner for Chris Harris.
