Here are some of the whispers we've been hearing around the AFC West:

• We're told that a more consistent training camp and preseason is the reason Chiefs ILB Derrick Johnson won a starting job after coming off the bench for nearly all of 2009. Johnson, who was in head coach Todd Haley's doghouse for much of last year, wrested the spot away from Demorrio Williams, who was none too happy about his demotion after he had put together a stellar preseason.

• The Chargers added some much-needed depth at offensive tackle prior to Week One by bringing in veteran OT Adam Terry, who was signed and then cut by the Colts this past offseason. Missing all of 2009 following knee surgery, Terry will back up both tackle spots initially, but we're told that he could be elevated to the starting lineup if either Brandyn Dombrowski or Jeromey Clary falters.

• The Raiders had free-agent DE Bobby McCray, who was cut by the Saints earlier this month, in for a workout Sept. 8, but the team is in no rush to sign him. Oakland could consider locking up McCray at some point if a roster spot opens up because of an injury to a defensive end.
