AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders

     

Broncos

Mike Klis caught up with new Broncos RB Melvin Gordon and discussed how he thinks he’ll fit with his new team. 

“It’s crazy. I’m excited. I don’t know too many people there but really cool with Von. Know he’s a great player I’ve been going up against. I haven’t really watched too much of the offense of Denver. I know Phillip Lindsay,” Gordon said. “I’m familiar with Lindsay, watching highlights. Excited to team up with him for another 1-2 punch. I’m excited to get rolling. I think they have good balance. They run the ball well. I think the scheme fits me. I’m excited to see what I can do.”

  • Klis reports that Gordon will step in as Denver’s bell cow starter, with Pro Bowl RB Phillip Lindsay moving into a No. 2 role. 
  • According to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, new Browns CB Kevin Johnson drew interest from the Broncos before agreeing to a one-year contract worth up to $6 million.

Chiefs

  • According to Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs were interested in G Andrus Peat before he re-signed with the Saints for five years and $33 million guaranteed. 
  • Chiefs DE Frank Clark had his entire $18.5 million 2021 base salary become fully guaranteed Friday. (Joel Corry)

Raiders

  • Vic Tafur mentions that while the Raiders liked free agent WR Robby Anderson, they ultimately decided to focus on improving their defense in free agency.
  • Tafur considers wide receiver, cornerback, another running back, defensive tackle and safety to be the Raiders’ top needs at this point. 
  • Now that the asking prices for free agent receivers appear to be falling, Tafur says the Raiders may not be done. 
  • According to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, new Browns CB Kevin Johnson drew interest from the Raiders before agreeing to a one-year contract worth up to $6 million.
