Evening AFC West news and notes

The Contra Costa Times reported that several players said JaMarcus Russell looked to be in much better physical shape than he was at the end of last season when he showed up at the team’s offseason conditioning program Tuesday. This is a good start for Russell who is entering a huge season.

The Jets won’t talk about the possibility of pursuing Brandon Marshall. That doesn’t mean they are or they aren’t interested. They just aren’t talking. ESPN’s John Clayton suggested receiver Braylon Edwards would be part of a potential Jets package if they pursue Marshall.

Former Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil has high hopes for former Kansas City running back Larry Johnson in Washington.

The Broncos are looking closely at some of the best interior offensive linemen available in the draft.

It didn’t take Andra Davis long to bounce back from his surprise release from Denver. He signed with Buffalo on Tuesday. I still say he would have fit in with the Chiefs,
