You pick it: AFC West storylines
By Bill Williamson

The candidates are:
Wiegmann gets new deal: Denver gave Pro Bowl center Casey Wiegmann a two-year contract extension. Wiegmann, 35, was considering retirement if he didn't get an extension.
Russell takes charge: Oakland quarterback JaMarcus Russell announced that he will be working with the Raiders' receivers during their break before training camp to maintain their timing. This was an assertive move by a player Oakland wanted to show more leadership.
Boss Bailey cut: Denver released linebacker Boss Bailey, the brother of star cornerback Champ Bailey, as he was recovering from a major knee injury. He was with Denver for one season and his release cost the team about $3.5 million in salary-cap room.
