Early AFC West news and notes


Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

It is being reported the Raiders are bringing in Derrick Brooks in for a visit. The linebacker visited New Orleans this week. The Raiders would likely only use Brooks in a limited role. But he would bring good leadership if signed.

  • LaDainian Tomlinson believes he's likely going to play Saturday against Seattle, which would be a rare preseason romp for the star San Diego tailback.

  • The new Arrowhead Stadium forgot its history.

  • Former Oakland cornerback DeAngelo Hall was critical of Al Davis once again. I'm of the opinion that Hall should move on. After all, he was a complete bust in Oakland. He did nothing to change the losing culture there. All he did was collect $8 million for eight games of lackluster service. He doesn't need to complain about his Oakland days.
