Evening AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
The Spanos family is reportedly shopping a minority piece of the San Diego Chargers. This happens often around the league and really shouldn’t affect the leadership of the team. Meanwhile, a San Diego columnist looks at the team’s quest for a new stadium.
The Raiders expressed pleasure that Lane Kiffin’s grievance against the team was denied Monday. Kiffin was seeking $333,000 in contract off-set compensation.
The league decided that San Diego’s game at Indianapolis on Nov. 28 will remain the Sunday Night game. It will be Vincent Jackson’s season debut as his roster exemption ends. This is his third game on the list after he ended his holdout.
The Chargers signed safety Pat Watkins for depth. Receiver Gary Banks was cut, which is a sign the team is getting healthier at the position.
