Horn likes San Diego and Denver
Posted by ESPN.com' s Bill Williamson
"If they are interested in us, we'd be interested in them," Vitolo said of the Chargers and the Broncos.
Of course, Vitolo is not limiting his search for a new home for Horn, who was just cut by Atlanta, to just the AFC West. There are several teams Vitolo and Horn have identified as good fits.
Connections play a key role in San Diego and Denver being on Horn's list. Jimmy Raye is the Chargers' director of pro personnel. Raye's father has a long history with Horn. Denver's assistant general manager, Brian Xanders, worked with Horn in Atlanta.
Connections aside, would either San Diego or Denver have an interest in Horn? He'd be a reserve in both places.
Denver has several backup receivers behind young starters Brandon Marshall, who will miss at least the first two games of the season while serving an NFL suspension, and rookie Eddie Royal. They include Brandon Stokley, Darrell Jackson and Keary Colbert. Denver coach Mike Shanahan has a history of signing veteran receivers.
While the Chargers and the Broncos have Horn interested, we'll see if the feeling is mutual.
