The candidates are:

Denver receivers injured: Eddie Royal had hip surgery and Demaryius Thomas tore his Achilles. Royal hopes to be back in May. Thomas is expected to miss six to eight months.

Jackson franchised: San Diego gave Pro Bowl receiver Vincent Jackson the franchise tag, virtually ensuring Jackson will be back in San Diego in 2011. He held out for much of the 2010 season.

Rogers visits Chiefs: Free-agent defensive tackle Shaun Rogers visited the Chiefs. He played for Kansas City defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel in Cleveland in 2008.
