AFC West notes

Is former Oakland bust JaMarcus Russell on his way back to the NFL? NFL.com reports there is considerable interest in Russell, who is attempting a comeback after being cut by the Raiders three years ago.

My take: I’ll believe it when I see it.

Former Denver quarterback Cullen Finnerty was found dead at the age of 30 after a fishing accident in Michigan. He was briefly with the Broncos in 2008. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

The Denver Post reports the Broncos may soon begin talks on a new deal for pending free agent punter Britton Colquitt. I’d be surprised if a deal doesn’t get done at some point this year. Denver covets the solid Colquitt.
