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

• With just six draft picks remaining, and only two after the third round, we hear the Broncos will be looking to stockpile selections prior to the draft. QB Kyle Orton's name has been floated around in trade talks, but a source close to the team said ILB D.J. Williams could be the next player to go. Williams was stripped of his captaincy after his second DUI arrest this season and has not displayed the attitude the organization expects from its leaders moving forward.

• With the final four years on his deal having been voided, Raiders OG Robert Gallery is due to become an unrestricted free agent. Some have suggested that he's likely to move on from Oakland because of his loyalty to his former head coach, Tom Cable, who did not have the option on his contract picked up after the season.

• While the Chargers are said to be one of the many teams interested in free-agent Pro Bowl CB Nnamdi Asomugha, we hear that the chances of him landing in San Diego are slim. Not only does GM A.J. Smith rarely go after marquee free agents, but the Bolts appear set at corner with Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason. While a move to safety could eventually be in the cards for Jammer, the 31-year-old recently said that he thinks he has 3-4 more years before he'll need to make the switch.

• There was speculation that head coach Todd Haley stripped offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, who had already accepted a job at the University of Florida, of play-calling duties during the Chiefs' playoff loss to the Ravens. However, reports later surfaced indicating that was not the case. Haley is now in the process of filling the open coordinator spot and wants to find someone who will continue to build the offense's identity. He did not rule out calling plays himself, as he did for K.C. in '09.
