AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Raiders

     

Broncos

New Broncos G Graham Glasgow will likely take over the leadership role on the team’s offensive line, with tackles Garett Bolles and Ja’Wuan James each having individual struggles last season.

“That’s something I have no issues with,” Glasgow told Mike Klis of 9News. “That’s something I feel like I’ve done really well over my time in college, high school, and even in the pros at times in Detroit. I feel like that comes with the territory of being an older player who has played a lot of football, who has seen a lot of stuff and experienced a lot of things. That’s something I’m really looking forward to. I’m really looking forward to getting out there and seeing the personalities in the room and trying to make sure we can put the best product out there on Sunday.”

Chargers

Former Ohio State WR K.J. Hill saw 33 receivers selected before he finally came off the board in the seventh round. He says he won’t forget that number.

“A lot of people skipped on me. A lot of people doubted me,” Hill said, via Daniel Popper of The Athletic “I’m not fast enough. My hands are not big enough. They want to blow up my attributes. They was questioning it. All I can do is go out there and prove them wrong.”

Going forward, Hill plans to use his status as the 34th receiver taken as motivation to prove his doubters wrong.

“I felt it watching the draft,” Hill said. “Every receiver that got picked before me, watching it, seeing it happen. I’m just taking that as fuel and putting that in the back of my head and remembering it every time I’m on the field, and remembering where I got picked and the guys that got picked before me.”

Raiders

Don Webb, the chief operating officer for the Raiders’ construction subsidiary, says the team’s new Las Vegas stadium remains on track to complete construction on July 31, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic. 

“The coronavirus pandemic has upended daily life and made an already ambitious project schedule even more challenging,” Webb said, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “But even with this added degree of difficulty, Allegiant Stadium remains on track for substantial completion of its construction on July 31.

“The construction continues generally on a six-day a week schedule, with a daily workforce that has exceeded 2,000 workers on site.
