Evening notes: Elway likes Tebow pick

Denver legendary former quarterback John Elway supports the Tim Tebow pick in Denver.

He said believes Tebow will succeed as a NFL quarterback and he calls him a winner. Does this guarantee Tebow will work out in Denver? Of course not. But it’s always nice to have the backing of the most influential player in the history of the franchise.

ESPN.com’s rumor pageInsider wonders if safety Oshiomogho Atogwe could end up in Oakland.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter doesn’t believe there is any way Denver would trade quarterback Brady Quinn despite the drafting Tebow, who Denver expects to be the starting quarterback at some point in the not-so-distant future.

The Kansas City Star doesn’t think Kansas City added enough on defense. I agree. I’d like to see more action, especially at nose tackle and at linebacker.

Former Chiefs’ great Will Shields is not miffed that someone else is wearing No. 68 (for now) in Kansas City.

The Chiefs signed former Notre Dame receiver David Grimes. He played for new Kansas City offensive coordinator Charlie Weis in college. Grimes is 5-foot-9, 183 and he also has some return experience. He was signed by Denver last year.
