Evening AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that new Kansas City coach Andy Reid is interviewing former Minnesota head coach Brad Childress for a role on his staff. Childress, currently the Cleveland Browns' offensive coordinator, has been linked to the Chiefs since Reid was hired. He was offensive coordinator under Reid in Philadelphia, so it won’t be a surprise at all if he ends up in Kansas City.
The Kansas City Star has a look at three men in the running to become the Chiefs’ general manager: John Dorsey, Tom Gamble and Tom Heckert. Dorsey is considered a top candidate.
Denver left tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder) and left guard Chris Kuper (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday and seem ready to play Saturday against the Ravens. Backup cornerback Tracy Porter (concussion) did not practice.
In an Insider piece, Steve Muench looks at the top pass-rushers available in the draft. One of these players could end up being Oakland’s pick at No. 3.
In another Insider piece, Mel Kiper re-does the 2007 draft . No, JaMarcus Russell didn’t make the cut this time.
