AFC West Update: Trevor Siemian Making Positive Impression, Eric Berry Named To NFL Top 100


The teams of the AFC West are in the midst of Organized Team Activities [OTAs] with Mandatory Minicamps around the corner.

Even though we're still well over a month away from Training Camp, things are never quiet around the division, so let's take a look and see what's going on around the AFC West.



If nothing else, it's been an entertaining several months for the quarterbacks of the Denver Broncos.

After parting ways with Brock Osweiler in free agency, trading for Mark Sanchez, and drafting Paxton Lynch, the Broncos have three quarterbacks on the roster. While many may see Trevor Siemian as the dark horse candidate to win the starting job, members of the Broncos don't see it that way.

"Trevor has a maturity to him," cornerback Chris Harris Jr. told "He's kind of the sleeper, I would say. Of course Mark [Sanchez] and Paxton [Lynch] are going to be the headlines, but Trevor knows the offense. He's very comfortable and can throw the ball, too. We've also seen him make big plays in the preseason games under the lights. I wouldn't sleep on Trevor to win the job."

Head Coach Gary Kubiak and the Broncos are a few months away from having to settle on a signal-caller, but the mere fact that Siemian seems to have the confidence of his teammates means that he should be taken seriously in the upcoming quarterback competition.

Entering his second NFL season, the former Northwestern Wildcat appeared in just one game as a rookie, completing one pass for -1 yards.



After an impressive 2015 season, Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry was named to the “NFL Top 100” earlier this week, checking in at No. 55.

After missing a majority of the 2014 season, Berry responded in a big way last year, appearing in all 16 regular season games for the Chiefs, making 15 starts in the process. He recorded two interceptions, 10 passes defensed, and was once again regarded as one of the top safeties in the NFL.

Berry was the eighth member of the Kansas City Chiefs to make the "NFL Top 100," meaning Andy Reid's team is the most-represented squad in the NFL.

Here are the other members of the Chiefs to make the "NFL Top 100" so far:

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (No. 93)

Tight end Travis Kelce (No. 91)

Outside linebacker Tamba Hali (No. 84)

Quarterback Alex Smith (No. 81)

Linebacker Derrick Johnson (No. 80)

Running back Jamaal Charles (No. 75)

Cornerback Marcus Peters (No. 65)



During this time of the offseason, the bottom of the roster is a revolving door for many NFL teams, and the San Diego Chargers are no different.

The Chargers made a move to bolster their offensive line Thursday, signing tackle Brett Boyko and waiving undrafted free agent tackle Zeth Ramsay.  Prior to joining the Bolts, Boyko was on the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad.

While the former UNLV Rebel has yet to appear in an NFL game, you can never have enough depth along the offensive line, particularly for a team that allowed 40 sacks in 2015.

In 2015, the Silver and Black won both their matchups with the San Diego Chargers, and Khalil Mack and Co., will get their first chance to take on the Bolts in 2016 in a Week 5 matchup at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
