Here are the candidates:

Wilhelm cut: San Diego cut veteran linebacker Matt Wilhelm. He fell out of favor because the team signed Kevin Burnett.

Marshall reports: Brandon Marshall avoided fines in Denver by showing up for training camp. Still, he doesn't seem thrilled about being a Bronco. He asked to be traded in June.

Merriman's return: San Diego Pro Bowl linebacker Shawne Merriman was back on the field this week and he appears raring to go. He missed all but one game last season after having knee surgery. The Chargers' defense suffered without him.

Hit my mailbag with your thoughts on the AFC West story of the week. I will post some of your responses later in the week.
