AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Raiders



  • New Broncos RB Melvin Gordon signed a two-year, $16 million deal includes $9 million fully guaranteed in 2020 and a fully guaranteed base salary of $4.5 million in 2021 to go along with a non-guaranteed $2 million training camp roster bonus and a $500,000 game day bonus. (Mike Klis)
  • Klis reports that the Bills offered “a little more” to Gordon, but he preferred to play for Denver. 
  • According to Troy Renck, there has been “no movement” on possibly re-signing either DE Derek Wolfe or DL Shelby Harris
  • Mike Klis mentions that Broncos free agent DB Will Parks has drawn decent interest on the open market but he’s balancing starting opportunity with money. 


  • Chargers LB Denzel Perryman‘s restructured contract saved the organization $1 million in cap space, giving them around $7-8 million in available money to spend. (Daniel Popper)


  • Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports that the Raiders were showing interest in Tom Brady prior to him signing with the Buccaneers “as late as this week,” but never made him an offer.
  • Tafur says that the Raiders were not willing to commit the $25 million guaranteed he received from Tampa Bay. The Raiders reportedly believed game film over the last two years did not warrant his price tag for the Raiders. 
  • If the Raiders were a serious finalist for Brady, Tafur mentioned that they would have started shopping QB Derek Carr to other teams. Regarding Carr and the Raiders moving forward, Tafur doesn’t think there will be any serious fallout moving forward.
