AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
I have fulfilled my jury duty commitment, so let’s catch up on some AFC West notes:
Jacksonville owner Shahid Khan said Tim Tebow did not want to come to the Jaguars and that’s why he was traded to the Jets last week. Tebow reportedly felt as if the Jets wanted him more than the Jaguars did. Tebow is from Jacksonville.
New Denver and former Indianapolis tight end Jacob Tamme said in a radio interview that the presence of Peyton Manning played a big role in his signing with the Broncos.
Manning got some throwing reps in at a Denver-area high school on Monday with several of his new teammates. Due to CBA rules, the players currently have to work out on their own without the guidance of coaches. The Broncos will assemble as a team for some offseason workouts April 16. Still, Manning is clearly focused on getting acquainted with his new teammates as soon as possible.
