Early AFC West notes

  • San Diego linebacker Tim Dobbins has signed his restricted free-agency tender.

  • The Chargers have five unsigned restricted free agents remaining: receivers Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd, linebacker Shawne Merriman, tackle Marcus McNeill and defensive end Travis Johnson.

  • Todd McShay's latest mock draft is on ESPN.com. There really aren’t any shocking choices for the AFC West teams. But it’s a solid read. Check it out.

  • The San Diego Union Tribune believes there could be some fireworks involving the Chargers during the draft. The paper maintains that running back Darren Sproles and Merriman could be available through a trade. This speculation is just another reason to get excited about the coming days.
