Around the AFC West: Drayton Florence, Darrius Heyward-Bey and more

Denver Broncos

After visiting with the Tennessee Titans, and with word that the San Diego Chargers were interested, CB Drayton Florence has decided to sign with the Broncos. They've agreed on a two-year deal, potentially worth $4.5 million (which is a bargain).

Denver had signed free agent CB Tracy Porter to a one-year deal earlier in the offseason, so Florence will most likely work as the team's nickel CB and be ready to start in case of injury.

Oakland Raiders

Darius Heyward-Bey, who showed signs last season of finally filling his potential as a former first round draft pick, has been charged with a DUI after being arrested on the Bay Bridge over a month ago. It's not the end of the world, by any means, but it's a step backwards during an offseason when the team needed the WR to continue to make strides forward.

By the way, you should check out DHB's contract at some point. Specifically, the $21+ million that was paid in base salary to him in 2010. Then wonder about how the Redskins and Cowboys got punished for spending during the non-cap season and how the Raiders escaped a similar fate.

Kansas City Chiefs

Not much to report. Supposedly, some people are upset that Scott Pioli drafted for the future instead of the present. They've signed some draft picks.

They're kinda like the Chargers this offseason, except instead of guys like Melvin Ingram they have Justin Houston coming into his own. Instead of Ladarius Green, they have Tony Moeaki coming back. Instead of Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal to boost the offense, they get Jamaal Charles back. Instead of Jarret Johnson and Brandon Taylor, they get Eric Berry back. You get the idea. They're optimistic, but things are relatively quiet.
