Catching up on the day
By Bill Williamson
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - I have spent the past few hours interviewing Denver personnel as the Broncos report to training camp. I will be back with coverage later Wednesday. In the meantime, here are some happenings that affect or could affect the AFC West:
Green Bay cut safety Charlie Peprah. Would former Green Bay executive and new Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie be interested now that he has some salary-cap room to play with? Perhaps, but I don’t see Peprah being a starter in Oakland, and he might get the chance to start elsewhere if he can get healthy. He would be a solid backup for the Raiders, though.
The Patriots cut running back Joseph Addai, who played with Peyton Manning in Indianapolis. Perhaps the Broncos will look at him, but they had ample time to sign him before he went to the Patriots and they did not bite.
In an Insider piece , Aaron Schatz thinks Oakland second-year cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke may be deserving of more playing time. If he has a strong preseason, I could see Van Dyke making a strong push to start.
The Broncos cut two undrafted rookies for medical reasons.
The Chargers signed undrafted rookie tackle Cordell Bell. They cut undrafted rookie receiver Paul Cox.
