NFL: We want to keep our teams where they are - Matthew T. Hall

ManningWatch: Peyton in the AFC West - Bill Williamson

Branch -- a strong safety from Oakland -- and Carr -- a cornerback from Kansas City -- led all AFC West defensive backs in snap percentage during the 2011 season. Branch played 99.13 of Oakland’s defensive snaps last season. Carr played 96.82 percent of the Chiefs’ defensive snaps.
