Let’s catch up on some of the more interesting visits that have been recently set up by AFC West teams:
Denver: The Broncos are reportedly going to visit with Oregon linebacker Casey Matthews. The word around the league is Matthews – the younger brother of Green Bay star linebacker Clay Matthews -- would be a perfect middle man for John Fox’s defense. He’d likely cost a second-round pick.
Kansas City: Surprisingly, the Chiefs are visiting with Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara. He is expected to go way before the Chiefs pick at No. 21 and it is not a big need position for the Chiefs. I’d be stunned if he ended up in Kansas City.
Oakland: The Raiders have been predictably quiet about the players they are visiting with. In fact, in a radio interview, Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett rattled off the names of several teams he is set to visit with and then he dropped a juicy one. He said there was another visit that he couldn’t mention. It made me the think of the secretive Raiders, who could use a strong-armed quarterback prospect. I’m not saying Mallett will visit the Raiders. Just connecting the dots.
