Evening AFC West news, notes

The Darrent Williams murder trial has been sent to the jury. A dismissed juror had some strong opinions about the testimony of Denver receiver Brandon Marshall. The former juror said he believes Marshall was the target when Williams was shot and killed after a dispute in the early hours of Jan. 1, 2007 in downtown Denver.

San Diego has cut or lost five players in the past week. Linebacker Shawne Merriman is not happy about it. Merriman is a restricted free agent, but he was given the high tender, so he likely is remaining in San Diego.

Denver re-signed exclusive free agent kicker Matt Prater. His signing was a formality.

Free agent tight end Anthony Becht left Oakland for a visit with the nearby 49ers without signing a deal with the Raiders.
