AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders



  • According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, the Broncos could pass on selecting a quarterback at No. 10 overall given that they do not want to pressure Joe Flacco and start a controversy. 
  • Robinson believes that the Broncos think there will be good quarterback prospects available they could wait for “later on” in the draft. 
  • Should the Broncos pass on a quarterback at No. 10 overall, Robinson could see Denver targetting an offensive lineman.
  • Mike Klis mentions that the Broncos have hosted Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins and Missouri QB Drew Lock for official visits, worked out Duke QB Daniel Jones and Washington QB Clayton Thorson and had formal meetings with West Virginia QB Will Grier and Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham at the NFL Combine.

  • NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says he wouldn’t be surprised if the Chargers discuss an extension with QB Philip Rivers soon. 
  • The Chargers have shown interest in some of the top quarterbacks in this class like Missouri QB Drew Lock and West Virginia QB Will Grier as Rivers isn’t young, but Rapoport says Rivers is the team’s quarterback going forward. 
  • USC LB Cameron Smith and S Marvell Tell and UCLA TE Caleb Wilson and QB Wilton Speight worked out for the Chargers at their local pro day Thursday. (Jeff Miller)


  • Albert Breer expects the Chiefs to “proceed carefully” in regards to extension talks with WR Tyreek Hill if he’s cleared of any wrongdoing in the legal matter surfaced last month. 
  • Prior reports had said that Hill could be in line for a record-breaking extension. However, Breer could see the Chiefs adding language to protect against something else happening.
  • Beyond that, Breer wouldn’t be surprised if Kansas City drafted some insurance at the position such as Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown.


  • Although Vic Tafur of The Athletic believes there is “some smoke involved” with the Raiders’ interest in a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft, he believes Raiders GM Mike Mayockwill be sweating” if Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins is available at No. 4. 
  • Tafur adds that Raiders HC Jon Grudenreally loves” Haskins, but there is “no logical reason” for them to select a quarterback given QB Derek Carr is owed $20 million next season.
