Evening AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
Linebacker Dan Connor, cut by Dallas, is going to visit the Raiders. He started eight games last season and had 56 tackles. He fits the profile of the players Oakland is pursuing: young and inexpensive.
U-T San Diego is reporting the Chargers will visit with Jacksonville cornerback Derek Cox on Friday.
The Eagles reportedly have interest in receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who was cut by the Raiders. Speed piece for Chip Kelly’s breakneck offense?
Philip Wheeler told media members in Miami that the Chiefs were interested in him before he left the Raiders for the Dolphins. It’s interesting because he is a 4-3 outside linebacker and the Chiefs are a 3-4 team that is set at outside linebacker. I haven’t heard the Chiefs being interested in any other linebackers to this point. Perhaps that will change.
