Looking ahead to the upcoming 2020 NFL season, the AFC West appears to be a very intriguing division to keep an eye on. Currently, the Kansas City Chiefs are the obvious favorite to win the division, but every team in the division got better this offseason.
Kansas City ended up winning the Super Bowl last season, while the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers both struggled with mediocrity. The Denver Broncos had a rough season until late in the year when they shifted course to rookie quarterback Drew Lock starting under center.
At this point in the offseason, most of the player movement has already come and gone. Teams in the AFC West made some moves and now the competition for roster spots is set to begin. As is the case every year, there are going to be some surprise roster cuts.
With the strange NFL offseason due to the COVID-19 pandemic, teams are going to have to do things a bit differently. They have been unable to utilize their facilities and it is unknown how things like training camp will go.
All of that being said, let’s take a look at one surprise roster cut that each team in the AFC West division could end up making prior to the regular season.
