Expect potential movement in the LaDainian Tomlinson restructuring talks early in the week. Both sides want to get to a resolution. If Tomlinson doesn't a new deal, he will likely be cut.

If San Diego cuts Tomlinson it will likely need to find a veteran to pair with Darren Sproles. One potential candidate is Derrick Ward. The Giants' free agent is making the rounds and he will visit Denver on Sunday. Ward would be a good fit with Denver which has already signed veterans Correll Buckhalter and J.J. Arrington. However, the Denver Post is reporting that there is a glitch in the Arrington deal. The two sides are trying to rework it.

The Broncos are visiting with cornerback Andre Goodman Saturday and Sunday. The Broncos still have a need at cornerback.

The Denver Post quotes both Jay Cutler and Denver coach Josh McDaniels on the trade talks involving Cutler. McDaniels said the talks are dead. Cutler doesn't seem to believe so. A source close to the situation maintains Saturday night that Cutler wants to be moved in light of the Cassel trade talks.

The Baltimore Sun reported Friday that Ray Lewis is on Denver's radar. The Broncos have been very intense in their pursuit of free agents.

Oakland offensive lineman Cooper Carlisle is visiting Tampa Bay. Oakland is still interested in re-signing Carlisle.

No unrestricted free agents from an AFC West team has either re-signed with his club or with a new club. Denver is the only team in the division to sign anyone since fee agency started.
