AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Buffalo has agreed to hire Syracuse coach Doug Marrone as its head coach. He was on the Chargers’ interview list. I never got the sense Marrone was a top choice of the Chargers’ though.
Schefter reports the Browns will interview Kansas City personnel man Ray Farmer for their general manger job. It is unclear if the Chiefs’ new regime wants to keep Farmer, but CBS Sports reported he interviewed for the open general manager job in Kansas City. Still, it is very much expected to go to Green Bay personnel man John Dorsey.
Former Denver backup quarterback Jeff Lewis died at the age of 39.
U-T San Diego reports that left tackle Jared Gaither is not a popular figure in the Chargers’ locker-room, and if for some reason the team wants to bring him back (they very likely won’t), his teammates will not be happy. Don’t expect it to be an issue. The Chargers are moving on at left tackle. Gaither is enormously gifted, but he hasn’t shown he wants to play enough.
