Evening AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
Excited for free agency? Check out his list of possible free agents. No, there’s not a lot to get excited about. It’s just another reason to believe Oakland cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is going to break the bank. He’s the best player available on this list and it’s not even close.
- In an Insider piece, Mel Kiper thinks Oakland cornerback Chimdi Chekwa of Ohio State is one of the third-day draft picks who can make an immediate impact. Chekwa could step in and play because of Asomugha’s likely departure.
- New Denver coach John Fox brought his boss, John Elway, with him back to his former stomping grounds in Carolina for a golf tournament. It’s early and the stress of the season hasn’t started, but you have to be impressed by the chemistry Fox and Elway are enjoying thus far.
