AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Raiders


  • Nicki Jhabvala reports the Broncos interviewed former 49ers offensive assistant T.C. McCartney on Tuesday and are hiring him as their next quarterback’s coach.


Chargers impending free agent WR Tyrell Williams says he thinks he can be a No. 1 receiver in the NFL. 

“I definitely feel like I’m a No. 1 receiver,” Williams said, via “So I want to make sure that I clean up all of the little things in route running and blocking, to make sure I solidify myself as a No. 1.

As for returning to the Chargers, Williams said “we’ll see.”

“We’ll see [what happens],” said Williams. “You never know. I’m just going to let my agent take care of it and try and enjoy these next, couple months.


NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday that the hope for owner Mark Davis is that the Raiders will remain in the Bay Area for the 2019 season.

“Many of those issues are obviously issues that the Raiders are taking a lead on,” Goodell said, via “They’ve been having a variety of discussions with officials looking at their options, making sure that they evaluate them. It’s unfortunate the litigation was filed prior to their final season in Oakland, but that’s the reality — that was filed by the city. I’m hopeful that they’ll get a resolution soon.

“As far as timing, the key thing on the timing is our schedule,” Goodell added. “We need to make a schedule obviously for the 2019 season and the sooner the better for us. I think the hope of Mark [Davis] is to continue to be in the Bay Area with his Raider fans.

  • Adam Caplan reports that Raiders director of pro personnel Dane Vandernat recently left the team.
  • According to Caplan, Dave Razzano is expected to take on more of a role on the pro side, at least temporarily.
