AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Broncos have re-signed defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson. He is a solid player. The team is still interested in Jacksonville’s Terrance Knighton. The Denver Post reports the Broncos and pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil are still far apart, even though Dumervil is open to a pay cut.
Schefter reported Denver could make a run at Shaun Philips of the Charges if Dumervil is cut. Dwight Freeney is in play as well.
The Chiefs still have interest in Miami cornerback Sean Smith.
The Kansas City Star is reporting the Chiefs are trying to trade quarterback Matt Cassel. There would be a few teams interested in him on the market. Maybe the Chiefs can get a late-round pick. If not, expect him to be cut soon.
Kansas City running back Peyton Hillis is visiting Green Bay.
Defensive end Chris Canty signed with the Ravens. He visited the Chiefs several weeks ago.
San Diego cornerback Antoine Cason’s market may be heating up. He's still a long shot to return to the Chargers.
UT-San Diego reports the Chargers are still interested in former Kansas City right tackle Eric Winston. He visited the Chargers a few days ago. The team signed King Dunlap on Tuesday, but he may be viewed as a player who gives the team depth.
There have been some conflicting reports on Oakland’s salary cap situation. ESPN’s John Clayton is reporting the Raiders are $14.66 million under the cap. They can make some more cuts to increase that number.
Sports Illustrated reports Oakland running back Mike Goodson is getting interest from the Jets, Bengals and Cowboys.
