AFC West Rumors: Raiders, Allen, Smith

Chargers GM Tom Telesco addressed reporters yesterday and acknowledged that the team is a little tight on cap space and will have some tough decisions to make in the coming weeks. While we keep an eye on San Diego, here’s a quick look at the Chiefs and Raiders..

  • Raiders head coach Dennis Allen says that he’s not interested in a one-year fix. “Everybody looks at our salary cap and says, ‘They’re going to go after every free agent that’s out there.’ That’s just not the case,” Allen told CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco. “We’re going to identify some guys and we have the ability to go out and get some guys (in free agency), but I just don’t believe that’s the way you build your football team.”
  • Chiefs GM John Dorsey says he doesn’t anticipate using the franchise tag, tweets Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star.
  • Dorsey confirmed the Chiefs have reached out to Alex Smith’s representatives about an extension, Paylor tweets. A new deal for the quarterback could clear some much-needed cap room for KC.
