The Denver Broncos are reportedly going to investigate former Jets’ safety Jim Leonhard.

CBS Sports reported that Leonhard will visit the Broncos on Saturday. He completed a visit with Buffalo on Friday. The report said Leonhard is keeping his options open.

Clearly, so are the Broncos. Denver has been impressed with second-year safety Rahim Moore. He had been competing with fellow second-year player Quinton Carter, who has been injured. Mike Adams is the other starter. Leonhard has a reputation for being a tough player. He could add good veteran depth at the spot if Denver signs him.

In other AFC West news:

I’ve been asked often if I think former Carolina tackle Jeff Otah could end up in Denver with former coach John Fox. Well, if he can pass a physical, I think there could be some interest, but Otah might need some time before he is ready to sign with a team. Everybody could use a talented backup, and Fox is familiar with Otah. I think it’s a wait-and-see situation.

Oakland running back Darren McFadden, in a radio interview, discuses the changes in Oakland.

Instead of practicing with the Arizona Cardinals twice next week at the Chiefs’ camp, the Chiefs will work with Arizona just once, on Tuesday.

Oakland receiver Denarius Moore was back practicing Friday after taking Wednesday off because of a lingering hamstring issue.
