Evening AFC West news and notes
By Bill Williamson
Here is a roundup of news items from around the AFC West:
- Former Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall said all the right things when meeting with the Miami media on Thursday. I’ve heard Marshall say the right things many times in the past, often after another misstep.
- Marshall’s former teammates in Denver, Brandon Stokley, discussed Marshall’s departure and how it will impact the Broncos in a radio interview.
- Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable praised second-year receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. Cable told Bay Area reporters that the No. 7 overall pick last year has made great strides this offseason. It’ll be interesting to see if during training camp Heyward-Bey can remedy his problem of not being able to hold onto the ball.
- It is being reported Tennessee is shopping running back LenDale White. If the Chargers don’t address their running backs needs in the draft (there’s no way they shouldn’t, though) perhaps they will consider White.
- Former Oakland receiver Javon Walker has a planned tryout with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
- San Diego right tackle Jeromey Clary signed his restricted free agency tender Thursday.
