Evening AFC West notes

Dallas is working on a deal to hire Cleveland defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. It has been speculated that he could be a candidate in Oakland as a head coach or as defensive coordinator if offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is promoted to head coach.

  • San Francisco has hired former Denver defensive backs coach Ed Donatell for the same gig.

  • Oakland Pro Bowl alternate running back Darren McFadden moved closer to playing in the game in Hawaii on Jan.30. Tennessee’s Chris Johnson replaced Jacksonville’s Maurice Jones-Drew on the roster, moving McFadden up in the alternate list.
