AFC West links: Protecting Manti Te’o
By ESPN.com staff
The Broncos insist they have moved on from last season's playoff loss to Baltimore and remain behind safety Rahim Moore, who was beat for a 70-yard touchdown in the final minute of regulation. "I think he's over it; I think we're all over it, you know," Denver defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio told the Associated Press. "I think we all look back and see things that we could have done better. We also look back with a great deal of pride in what we accomplished. We played some very good defense and he was central to that. So, we want to feel good about what went well. We want to feel the sting of what went bad. And we want to get ready to be better this year."
Mike Klis of the Denver Post asks questions the Broncos need to answer as they begin OTAs.
Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs wide receivers coach David Culley is already making a positive impression on his players. "Coach Culley, he’s been with some guys that have done great things in the NFL," Chiefs WR Jon Baldwin said. "So, for him to be able to be with those guys, who have been doing it for a long time and have proven that, it lets him be able to rub some of the stuff that he taught those guys and seen those guys develop into and bring it to us. It’s a great thing to have him as a receiver coach."
Raider Nation would really like to see veteran cornerback Charles Woodson back in an Oakland uniform.
San Diego Chargers
Former Chargers cornerback Quentin Jammer fully expects to be playing somewhere in 2013.
Matt Calkins of U-T San Diego: "It is completely understandable that Chargers coach Mike McCoy would want to shield his celebrity of a linebacker from prying media members, and if the request came from Manti Te’o, one can empathize with that as well. But this story isn’t like a headache or a bruise that will go away if you just leave it alone. It’s more like an anxiety disorder -- the only way to kill it is with exposure."
