DANA POINT, Calif. -- It is being reported that Kansas City will visit with Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry.

The Chiefs have the No. 3 pick and Curry is expected to be the first defensive player off the board. The Chiefs' primary needs are on defense. Kansas City's interest in Curry is no surprise. If he is on the board and the team doesn't want to trade down, he could be the likely selection.

The word around the lobby at the NFL owners' meeting was that the West Coast teams aren't overly thrilled with the fact that East Coast teams are getting a break coming out West. Some West Coast representatives argued that their teams are at a disadvantage because they have to travel to the East Coast and often play in games that start at 10 a.m. Pacific.

Still, don't expect any change. The NFL feels restricted enough in its scheduling and to schedule every game of a West Cost team playing on the East Cost for a 1 p.m. Pacific start is not going to happen.

With their acquisition of Miami center Samson Satele, the Raiders are no longer pursuing Buffalo center Duke Preston.

There will be some history made when Oakland and Denver play on Thanksgiving. The Raiders haven't played on Thanksgiving in 39 years and Denver hasn't hosted a Turkey Day game in 46 years.
