Evening AFC West news and notes

San Diego third-string quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is popular in the NFC West. Seattle is now going to visit with the restricted free agent. He is also visiting Arizona.

It would cost a third-round pick to sign Whitehurst. I’d imagine San Diego would let Whitehurst go if he signed an offer sheet. Getting a third-round pick for a third stringer isn’t a bad deal.

Backup Kansas City offensive lineman Wade Smith signed with Houston.

Top left tackle prospect Anthony Davis of Rutgers did not help his cause Wednesday. He has been connected to Kansas City and Oakland.

Alabama nose tackle Terrence Cody has now lost 21 pounds since the Senior Bowl in January. He could end up being taken by San Diego with the No. 28 pick.

Defensive end Greg Ellis, who was just cut by Oakland, would be interested in returning to Dallas. The Cowboys cut him last year.

Tight end Anthony Becht re-signed with Arizona. He visited with the Raiders this week.
