“NFL COMBINE NOTES”
It was interview day in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine.
General Managers took to the podium, and in the AFC-West, the leaders of the four teams had alot to say.
CHARGERS…Newly installed GM Joe Hortiz remained steadfast how he would do business to fix an underachieving roster.
..We will get under the salary cap-stay tuned
..I believe in churning this roster
..We will get players in the draft-then in free agency.
..We will sign free agents after OTAs in June
..We will sign free agents in August after the final roster cut down
..We will change the bottom of the roster continually during the season.
..My rosters are never set.
RAIDERS…Tom Telesco has taken over as GM and knows he has challenges ahead-but he is not ready to tear the roster apart.
..Davante Adams will not be traded-he is a Raider.
..Josh Jacobs is valued-rushing-receptions-pass blocking.
..Quarterbacks, I want leadership in huddle, a preparation driven player.
..We will look at trading up
CHIEFS…From Super Bowl ceremony to moving onto next year, all that from GM-Brett Veach.
..We will use the franchise tag for sure on either Chris Jones or LeJarius Sneed
..Jones franchise tag figure is (32M)
..Sneed’s tag number is (21M)
BRONCOS..Sean Payton is calling the player decisions on this roster.
..The Broncos must not get the next QB selection wrong
..Russell Wilson’s status will be decided within 2-weeks
..There have been no trade offers for Wilson-yet.
The Chargers draft 5th and could trade back.
The Raiders are outside the top 10-and need to trade up for a QB
The Broncos have a myriad of issues and trade chips to sue to move up
The Chiefs draft 32nd in the first round and have a great history of drafting.
