Links: Denver Broncos a Super Bowl pick
By ESPN.com staff
The Washington Times generated a list of the 17 greatest characters in AFC history, including Bill Romanowski of the Broncos, Hank Stram of the Chiefs and Sid Gillman of the Chargers. And the Raiders took the cake with having numerous "characters."
There's only one other team that Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla predicts could prevent the Broncos from winning the Super Bowl this upcoming season. Which team is it?
Local TV in Denver will have a plethora of Broncos-themed shows this fall, according to the Denver Post.
Kansas City Chiefs
Offensive lineman Eric Kush, selected by the Chiefs 170th overall in the sixth round of the 2013 draft, talks with the team's website about the most important lessons he's learned as a rookie.
Ted Burgmeier, a three-year starter at cornerback for Notre Dame and member of the 1977 national championship team, died at age 57. He played one season with the Chiefs.
Rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson tells Arkansas TV station 5 News that "it’s been an eye opener experience playing in a new system and a new environment," in Oakland.
San Diego Chargers
Often the greatest strides an NFL player makes come between his first and second season. With that in mind, the Chargers look for Kendall Reyes to build on his rookie debut, writes Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
