Evening AFC West notes

NFL.com is reporting that the Carolina Panthers will likely not give the franchise tag to running back DeAngelo Williams. If he is free to sign elsewhere, the Denver Broncos could be a potential landing spot. Former Panthers coach John Fox is now in Denver and he is a big fan of Williams. Fox believes in running the ball first and I could see him being interested in pairing Williams with Knowshon Moreno.

Any AFC West team interested in acquiring a safety now has plenty of options. The Colts’ Bob Sanders, the Texans’ Eugene Wilson and the Rams’ Oshiomogho Atogwe were all cut. The safeties position in the AFC West could be a fluid situation because of free agency, so I could see these players garnering interest in the division. Wilson played for Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli in New England.

Here is a look at the Chiefs’ draft-pick situation.
