AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders

     

Broncos

Broncos DL Adam Gotsis admitted that he’s entering an important season, as he has just one more year remaining on his rookie deal. 

“I’m coming into a big year for myself, a big contract year, so I’m looking to be out there making a lot of impact plays,” Gotsis said, via Broncos Wire.

Gotsis added that he would love to remain in Denver if possible. 

“I’d love to be here,” Gotsis said. “This is the place that drafted me. They obviously wanted me here. I’ve loved my time here and I just want to keep going out and playing hard for this team and all the guys in this locker room. That’s who it’s for. That’s all going to take care of itself at the end of the year for me.

Chiefs

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins said in an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio that he’s doing everything he can this offseason to ensure he has a big 2019 season. 

“Just the work I’ve been putting in,” Watkins said. “The confidence I have in myself and knowing that my body just feels amazing, just knowing that my body is holding up. I’m constantly getting faster, stronger, better, and I’m getting the support from the team, from my teammates and the organization. I feel like the fans and everyone, all the support I’ve been getting, it can’t go wrong. The universe kinda gives everybody what they wish for and the energy that they push out. That’s what I’ve been doing, trying to manifest a great year.

Raiders

Raiders free agent acquisition WR Tyrell Williams expects to contribute as a deep-threat option in 2019. 

“It’s vertical,” Williams said, via Scott Bair of NBC BayArea. “We like to go down the field, and I feel like that’s one of my strong points, taking it and stretching the field. I think that will be big for me being able to get a lot of [focus] go to ‘AB,’ so I feel like I’ll get a lot of one-on-one coverage down the field. It’ll be big for me.

Raiders QB Derek Carr did, however, make it clear that Williams is more than just a one-dimensional receiver. 

“He can run these routes and set people up,” Carr said of Williams. “He’s a technician also. He’s just not a big, raw body.
