AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
Chiefs players named running back Jamaal Charles the MVP of their 2-14 team in 2012; nose tackle Dontari Poe, the team's first-round draft pick, was named rookie of the year. Both sound like solid choices to me.
The Chiefs are inducting former defensive back Gary Barbaro into their hall of fame Saturday night.
I could see San Diego having some interest in bringing back running back Michael Turner, who was just cut by the Falcons. The Chargers need a reliable complement to Ryan Mathews. Turner began his career as LaDainian Tomlinson’s backup in San Diego. It is a new regime in San Diego and Turner only knows a handful of Chargers players, but there is reason to think this could be a fit.
