You pick it: AFC West storylines
By Bill Williamson
Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson
Victories may not be plentiful in the AFC West, but the division can make some news.
Here are the candidates after another wild week in the division:
- Seymour traded to Oakland: The Raiders made a blockbuster, unexpected trade by acquiring perennial Pro Bowl defensive lineman Richard Seymour for a first-round pick in 2011.
- Merriman arrested: San Diego star linebacker Shawne Merriman was arrested for battery and false imprisonment.
- Garcia cut: Oakland shut the door on quarterback Jeff Garcia. He was hoping to be the starter in Oakland, but Oakland has remained committed to JaMarcus Russell.
Pick your choice for the story of the week and hit my mailbag with your thoughts. I will post some of your responses later in the week.
