By ESPN.com staff
Mike Klis of The Denver Post: "The meshing of [John] Fox and [Peyton] Manning, and Manning and the Broncos, begins today with the Broncos' first organized team activity (OTA) workout at their Dove Valley headquarters."
Denver has reportedly started talks on a contract extension with left tackle Ryan Clady.
Kansas City Chiefs

SI.com's Don Banks includes running back Jamaal Charles among those players primed for a bounce-back season in 2012.
Toni Monkovic of The New York Times' Fifth Down Blog asks: "To put it in today’s terms, was the Raiders’ use of illegal pads [back in the day] on par or even worse than the Saints’ bounty system?"
Wide receiver Denarius Moore says he's fine with receiving added attention from defensive backs.
San Diego Chargers
Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego: "For eight long years, since just after the dawn of the A.J. Smith period, we’ve been teased with every reason to believe that this is the year a Chargers team that looks so good will actually be good enough. And so … with the caution that this could well be like the movie trailer that promises thrills and chills only to turn out to be 'John Carter,' I am intrigued enough by what I see and hear to deliver the teasing news that the Chargers have perhaps found the final pieces of the puzzle."
Scott Bair of the North County Times goes one-on-one with rookie safety Brandon Taylor.
