Report: Former Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles will visit the Broncos on Tuesday | Mile High Report

This would be a low risk/high reward type signing that the Broncos should do if his medicals come back clean and if he can pass a physical. If he does, and I expect he will, I believe he will be a member of the Denver Broncos in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Ask Terez: Questions, answers, analysis about new Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes | The Kansas City Star

When Sam and I first discussed the possibility of the Chiefs selecting a quarterback — which happened during Super Bowl week — I called Patrick Mahomes a less-polished Matthew Stafford, and I stand by the comparison. I always wondered what Stafford would have become had he been paired with a quarterback coach of Andy Reid’s caliber from the beginning; now I hope to get a sense. The arm talent is similar, and so is the tendency to throw from different platforms and arm angles. Mahomes also has a bit of the gunslinger Favre gene with the Tarkenton scrambling gene.
