Description: Free agent WR Devard Darling says the Seahawks, Raiders, Rams and Bears are showing interest in him right now.
Insight: The Raiders sound like a great place for him as a good athlete who has never achieved anything as a pro. Darling's fantasy appeal will be limited no matter where he may end up. (

Description: The Bahama Journal reports Darling said the Bears, Seahawks, Rams and Raiders have shown interest in him.
Insight: Darling is coming off a torn ACL, so he would be a long-shot to even make an NFL roster. That said, all of the teams mentioned above may be in the market for a wide receiver. (

Description: Darling has been released by Kansas City.
Insight: His recovery from a torn ACL will make things difficult to catch on anywhere. He shouldn?t be on anyone?s fantasy radar at the moment. (

Description: Darling lined up as the Chiefs' starting flanker in Tuesday's practice. (Kansas City Star)
Insight: The Chiefs could use a rotation at the starting spot opposite Dwayne Bowe, with Amani Toomer and Mark Bradley also possibly getting playing time. But if Darling or one of the others can get most of the playing time that player could have some, albeit minimal, fantasy value. (SportsBuff.com0

Description: In his first year with the Chiefs, Darling had 17 catches for 247 yards and a TD. He spent the first two years of his career with the Ravens.
Insight: The highlight of the 2008 came against the Patriots in which Darling looked like he had broken free for a late game TD to tie the score. He was tackled at the five-yard line and the Chiefs subsequently lost the game. With the new spread offense coming to KC, he may see some more opportunities. (
