AFC West: Dylan Gandy

Posted by's Bill Williamson

The Raiders officially ended high-priced receiver Javon Walker's season. He was put on the injured reserve. Walker has missed the past two games with an ankle injury.

It wouldn't be a shock that Oakland's next move involving Walker is to lease him. Walker, who signed a six-year, $55 million deal with Oakland in the spring, has been a major disappointment. He had just 15 catches this season before being hurt. Oakland could decide to cut ties with him in the offseason.

To take Walker's place on the roster, Oakland signed guard Dylan Gandy. He was cut by Denver in Oakland. He joins former Denver offensive lineman Cooper Carlisle and Cornell Green with the Raiders. The Raiders are in their second season using the zone-blocking scheme Denver has long used.

Meanwhile, the Raiders also waived Junius Coston, a guard they added to the 53-man roster last week, to promote defensive back Darrick Brown from the practice squad.

The Broncos and Chiefs made some roster movements in the past hour.

Denver signed guard Dylan Gandy to the active roster and signed cornerback Josh Bell, who was in camp with San Diego, to the practice squad.

Gandy has been bouncing on and off Denver's roster. He replaces Tom Nalen on the roster. Nalen, the Broncos' long-time standout center, was put on injured reserve Tuesday with a knee injury.

Kansas City added wide receiver Micah Rucker to the practice squad. Rucker was in camp with Pittsburgh.

The Broncos continued a busy Tuesday by making a few more roster moves after an early morning trade of cornerback Domonique Foxworth to Atlanta for a low draft pick.

This afternoon, Denver continued the makeover of its defensive line by releasing tackle Alvin McKinley. He was a decent contributor last season. Denver is inching towards a youth movement on the defensive line.

With the two roster openings left by the departure of Foxworth and McKinley, Denver signed guard Dylan Gandy and defensive tackle Josh Shaw.

Denver released Gandy on Saturday. The team's offensive line is a little thin at this point and Gandy will give the team some options during practice. Shaw was cut by Oakland on Saturday. Shaw has also played with San Francisco, New Orleans and Miami. He has played in nine NFL games since entering the league in 2002. Shaw was signed by Denver for depth purposes.
