AFC West headlines: Orton on the block?

Denver Broncos

NFL sources say the Broncos shopped quarterback Kyle Orton around this offseason, according to the Denver Post. But a Broncos official claims Orton "has never been available or discussed."

Kansas City Chiefs

Veteran linebacker Derrick Johnson hopes to earn a starting job this season.

The team is focusing on football-related exercises in organized team activities instead of getting in shape like last offseason.

Oakland Raiders

The Raiders are making a mistake by keeping offensive coordinator Hue Jackson away from the media, according to Monte Poole.

Any talk of the team switching primarily to a 3-4 defense remains just talk for the moment, reports Jerry McDonald.

San Diego Chargers

GM A.J. Smith isn't worried about the team's unsigned restricted free agents -- linebacker Shawne Merriman, offensive tackle Marcus McNeill and wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd.

The Chargers were primarily a passing offense last season, but history tells us coach Norv Turner wants to run the ball.
