AFC West links: Reggie McKenzie's focus

Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning remains confident we will see the Manning of old.

Because of California's tax rate, Manning saved himself a lot of money in his decision to sign with the Broncos instead of the San Francisco 49ers.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Steelers are reportedly still hoping to re-sign wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, who paid a free-agent visit to the Chiefs.

Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com says the addition of Manning to the division will put a greater demand on Kansas City's sub-packages.

Oakland Raiders

Ridding the organization of bad contracts has been a focus of new general manager Reggie McKenzie.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor dismissed rumors that the team wants him to change positions.

San Diego Chargers

Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego: "Dean Spanos watched much of the same television coverage, participated in the same type of conversations and was simultaneously engrossed and repulsed just like the rest of us as [Peyton] Manning’s search for a new team played out. Spanos, though, felt it deeper than most. He saw a madness behind the madness."
