AFC West news and notes

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

• New Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli said he will talk to coach Herman Edwards before making a decision on his future.

The two are expected to talk Thursday and Pioli is expected to make up his mind soon. The longer it drags out, the better Edwards chances of staying are.

• The Raiders will talk again with Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride on Thursday. He previously had a phone conversation with Raiders owner Al Davis. Gilbride joins interim coach Tom Cable and Green Bay defensive assistant Winston Moss as known candidates for the job. There's been word around the league that Gilbride is Davis' first choice. With him getting a second interview, that could back up that speculation.

• According to sources, the Broncos are poised to hire Mike Priefer as special teams coach. He was with Kansas City. He also interviewed at Green Bay.
