AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
CBSSports.com is reporting Kansas City is visiting with receiver Donnie Avery. He had 60 catches for the Colts last season.
Yahoo! Sports reports Oakland defensive tackle Richard Seymour may retire if he doesn’t get a big deal. Denver is reportedly interested. Seymour is 33, injury-prone and on the decline. I’m not sure he will command a big contract.
ESPN’s Andrew Brandt reports the Raiders are operating with more than $30 million in dead money, thus their actual salary cap is more in the $90 million range. Brutal.
The Raiders reportedly have re-signed cornerback Coye Francies. He is a bottom-of-the-roster type.
San Diego cornerback Antoine Cason may be out of the mix in Detroit now that the Lions have re-signed Chris Houston.
There were reports Tuesday that Kansas City running back Peyton Hillis was visiting the Packers. Now those reports are being disputed. I don’t think he’s much of a priority for the Chiefs.
The Giants are reportedly interested in defensive end Dave Tollefson. He was cut by Oakland on Tuesday. He left the Giants to sign with Oakland last year.
