Late AFC West news and notes

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

Wrapping a wild day in the AFC West:

  • The speculation is that Oakland will cut defensive tackle Terdell Sands. He has been a disappointment. The team loves undrafted rookie Desmond Bryant, who could make Sands expendable.

  • The Oakland Tribune wonders whether Nnamdi Asomugha’s wrist injury could be problematic. The Raiders better hope not.

  • The speculation in Seattle is that veteran receiver Deion Branch could be cut. Branch has New England blood in him. Both Kansas City and Denver, which now have plenty of New England blood in their respective organizations, could use receivers.

  • The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that rookie cornerback Brandon Hughes has a significant knee injury. The Chargers had high hopes for Hughes.

  • Denver receiver Eddie Royal talks about the Brandon Marshall situation in a radio interview.
