AFC West notes: Ex-Broncos coach dies

By ESPN.com staff

Denver Broncos

A look at Stan Jones, who coached the Broncos' defensive line for 18 seasons, and died May 21 at his daughter's home in Broomfield, Colo. He was 78. Jones helped create the Broncos' "Orange Crush" defense of the 1970s.

The team signed seventh-round rookie linebacker Jammie Kirlew to a four-year, $1.84 million contract.

With Brandon Marshall gone, Jabar Gaffney could emerge as the team's No. 1 receiving threat.

Kansas City Chiefs

In light of Dwayne Bowe's recent controversial comments, coach Todd Haley said the Chiefs try to teach their players how not to talk to the media.

Oakland Raiders

The Raiders have granted East Oakland $200,000 to build a new athletic field.

San Diego Chargers

According to his agent, defensive back Kevin Ellison was not aware that the Vicodin which resulted in his arrest was a controlled substance. Ellison, who started nine games during his rookie season with the Chargers, was arrested Monday in Redondo Beach, Calif., with 100 Vicodin pills in his possession after being pulled over for speeding.

Tuesday's decision to play the 2014 Super Bowl at the new Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey means San Diego's chances of hosting another Super Bowl anytime soon are slim, according to Nick Canepa.
