AFC West news and notes

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

Catching up on the AFC West after the Jay Cutler bombshell:

• The Lions had a great private workout with Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford. Does that mean they will not be part of the Cutler sweepstakes? Denver would love that No. 1 pick if the Lions are willing to part with it in a Cutler deal.

• Add Connecticut running back Donald Brown to the running backs San Diego is studying prior to the draft.

Larry Johnson has a good attitude about staying a Chief. That could go a long way in him staying in Kansas City.

• Quarterback Matt Cassel finally has a number in Kansas City. He will wear No. 7. He wore No. 16 in New England, but that number is retired in Kansas City. Legendary quarterback Len Dawson wore it.

• Among some of the more interesting names on Denver's pre-draft visit list? Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji, West Virginia quarterback Pat White and Pitt running back LeSean McCoy. Denver is also visiting with Ohio State running back Chris "Beanie" Wells.

• The Broncos cut running back Corey Boyd, who signed with the team last year when it suffered several in-season injuries at the position. Boyd almost started a game last season but ended up playing in just one game for Denver.
