Evening AFC West news and notes
By Bill Williamson
New Denver quarterback Brady Quinn proclaimed himself ready to fight for the starting job. It would be news if he said otherwise. Quinn has to simply embrace this new system and work hard to try to salvage his career.
" The San Diego Union Tribune reported that restricted free agents Vincent Jackson and Shawne Merriman may attract interest. Both players were given the high tender of a first and third-round price tag.
" The San Francisco Chronicle has reported Oakland Pro Bowl long snapper Jon Condo signed his restricted free agency tender.
" Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. has an interesting view on how the Chiefs’ draft will play out at No. 5.
" ESPN.com has a division-by-division breakdown of the unrestricted free agency signings.
" ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Oakland linebacker David Nixon signed his exclusive free agent tender.
Perhaps Kansas City, which need a safety, will look at safety Deon Grant. He was just cut by Seattle.
