Will Broncos covet DeAngelo Williams?

DENVER -- ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting some teams are interested in Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams.

Denver is naturally a team to keep an eye on since Broncos coach John Fox coached Williams in Carolina.

The Broncos could use another running back, but it isn’t a desperate situation, so if Williams is going to be pricey in terms of compensation and a contract restructuring proves difficult, I’m not sure the Broncos would be a favorite to land him. I do think the team could be interested under the right circumstances, though.

In other AFC West news:

Injured San Diego players, receiver Eddie Royal, cornerback Shareece Wright and linebacker Jonas Mouton are all inactive Sunday in Cleveland.

An ESPN Stats & Information post shows that Peyton Manning is now excelling on the deep pass as he continues to recover from four neck surgeries.

The NFL is still investigating the Chargers' use of a sticky towel in Week 6 against Denver. The towel company, Gorilla Gold, has yet to hear from the league. The Chargers could face a fine or a loss of a draft pick if the league finds that the Chargers broke league rules.

There will be some special visitors in Denver on Sunday night.
