AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
Sports Illustrated has reported that former San Diego executive Jimmy Raye has taken over as the vice president of operations for the Colts. That is the job Tom Telesco left to become the Chargers’ general manager. He beat out Raye for the job. Raye was with the Chargers for 17 years.
In a radio interview, Kansas City owner Clark Hunt made it clear the Chiefs would be open to trading the No.1 pick in the draft. That is not surprising, considering that the top talent doesn’t fit with the Chiefs' needs.
But it may be difficult trading the pick because of the lack of a top-draw quarterback and because there are several top defensive players available, so teams may not feel the urge to trade up because there isn’t a clear-cut top prospect.
Fox Sports is reporting Arizona wants to conduct a second interview with Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that McCoy is eyeing the San Diego job, which he is interviewing for Monday.
The Patriots have added former Kansas City offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. He will start working with the Patriots, who will host Baltimore in the AFC title game, immediately. Daboll was unsuccessful in his one season with the Chiefs.
