Early AFC West news and notes
By Bill Williamson
The San Diego Chargers have signed guard Lee Grimes. He is an undrafted rookie from Texas A&M. He was recently cut by Tampa Bay.
Former Denver and Oakland receiver Javon Walker is close to signing with Minnesota. The Raiders cut Walker this offseason after two unproductive, but expensive, seasons.
San Diego receiver Malcom Floyd discusses his new challenge as Vincent Jackson’s likely replacement as the No. 1 receiver in this radio interview.
Former Denver general manager Ted Sundquist wants to give former Denver wash-out running back Maurice Clarett a tryout for his UFL team. Clarett was a third-round pick in Denver in 2005. He was cut before even playing in a preseason game.
The Chargers asserted their broadcast rights this weekend to make sure the Raiders’ preseason game could not be shown live in the Los Angeles market. I’m sure that makes Oakland fans even more fond of San Diego.
Stan Kroenke’s bid to buy the St. Louis Rams may go to a vote this week.Don't expect the Broncos to cause a stink, even though Kroenke owns the NBA and NHL franchise in Denver. Kroenke and the Broncos have a good working relationship, plus he is expected to give ownership of his two Denver teams to family members.
