AFC West: Mike Peterson
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
Here is a look at what each team in the AFC West needs to do as free agency moves forward:
The Broncos have agreed to terms with eight free agents and one restricted free agent. They had a deal with running back J.J. Arrington but that contract had a glitch and the two sides continue to talk. The Broncos are also talking to running back Derrick Ward because of the Arrington situation.
The Broncos have been incredibly busy and with the Jay Cutler situation percolating, free agency may now take a back seat while the Broncos try to figure out how to solve the Cutler problem.
The Raiders don't have a load of money but they have some needs.
A player like Smith would be perfect because he can play both play right and left tackle. Oakland is looking for help at both spots and it would like to fill the holes in both free agency and in the draft.
The Chargers have been extremely quiet in free agency.
There a couple of big names would could fit if the situation was right. If Baltimore's Ray Lewis' price tag goes way down, he'd be an intriguing fit and if Marvin Harrison can't get a starting job, he'd be a nice fit as the No. 3 receiver in San Diego. But these fits may be difficult because of circumstances.
