AFC West: Braxton Kelley

On the final day of OTAs, the Chargers got a little tricky.

The San Diego Union Tribune reports San Diego practiced a form of the Wildcat offense, with running back LaDainian Tomlinson taking the snap from center and quarterback Philip Rivers lined up wide.

San Diego coach Norv Turner told reporters the formation was used mostly to give the defense experience against the formation. It seems that more teams are toying with the offense. Whatever the reason, it's a smart move for both the San Diego offense and its defense to get a taste of the formation. On occasion, Tomlinson would be dangerous using the formation.

Meanwhile, the Chargers are talking lottery.

The Broncos cut three players -- tackle Marcus Gordon, linebacker Braxton Kelley and receiver Travis Shelton. All three players were signed as undrafted free agents in April.

Denver is close to signing linebacker Nick Greisen. He was one of several linebackers to work out for the team Tuesday. Greisen fits in the 3-4 defense Denver is adopting. He was a capable role player for Baltimore and he is expected to be a key reserve in Denver if a deal is finalized.

Denver signed undrafted college free agent linebackers Braxton Kelley of Kentucky and Jeff Schweiger of San Jose State. Denver has now signed 17 college free agents. Denver, meanwhile, released Adam Bergen and receiver Jayson Foster.

Oakland signed some more college free agents.

In his typical classy manner, Tony Gonzalez departed Kansas City gracefully. Holding his own press conference, Gonzalez thanked Chiefs fans after a 12-season stay. He said he will retire as a Chief and enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame, if elected, as a Chief. Kansas City traded Gonzalez to Atlanta last week.
