According to KUSA’s Mike Klis, Broncos FB Andy Janovich‘s three-year, $5.7 million extension includes: 

  • 2019: Guaranteed $720,000 base salary and a $1.35 million signing bonus. 
  • 2020: $1.15 million guaranteed base salary, $100,000 roster bonus, $50,000 workout bonus. 
  • 2021: $1.3 million base salary, $100,000 roster bonus, $50,000 workout bonus.
  • 2022: $1.45 million base salary, $100,000 roster bonus, $50,000 workout bonus.
  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer writes that while the Broncos will likely receive calls about LB Von Miller, his understanding is Denver plans to keep Miller. 


  • Per the Los Angeles Times’ Jeff Miller, Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said recently-signed OL Ryan Groy is an option to take over at either center or guard along with Scott Quessenberry.
  • Los Angeles has lost both Mike Pouncey and Forrest Lamp for the season on the interior of the offensive line: “We’re going to look for the combination that works best for our football team.”


  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer says the Chiefs did not receive a call from the Jaguars with the opportunity to top the Rams’ offer for CB Jalen Ramsey because Jacksonville didn’t want to send Ramsey to another AFC team and Kansas City’s picks were considered to be too low. 
  • Chiefs TE Travis Kelce says the team is confident backup QB Matt Moore can step in for Patrick Mahomes and win games: “The biggest thing is making sure we don’t act uncharacteristically here going forward. Everyone just does their job and we keep trying to win football games.” (Pro Football Talk)
  • Chiefs HC Andy Reid confirmed Mahomes would miss this week’s game: “It would be a stretch for him to get there.” (Adam Teicher)
  • Per Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder, Mahomes’ MRI was “as good as we could imagine” as far as it relates to his recovery from a dislocated kneecap: “He’s progressing nicely.” (Teicher)
  • Burkholder added Chiefs CB Kendall Fuller had surgery to repair a broken thumb. (Herbie Teope)
  • Chiefs G Andrew Wylie is still dealing with a sprained ankle, while Reid said LT Eric Fisher, WR Sammy Watkins and DT Chris Jones are “making progress” and are considered day-to-day. (Teope)
