Tebow to Chargers? No, they like their QBs
By Bill Williamson
San Diego general manager Tom Telesco told a San Diego radio station that he is happy with his group of quarterbacks when asked if he’d ever have interest in signing free-agent quarterback Tim Tebow.
Tebow’s offensive coordinator in Denver was new San Diego coach Mike McCoy. Telesco’s position doesn’t surprise me. I just don’t see the Tebow fit in San Diego.
Meanwhile, for what it is worth, the Chargers’ addition of former Green Bay inside linebacker D.J. Smith last week was a waiver claim and not a free-agent signing. He is recovering from a knee injury, but he is expected to be able to help early in the season. He will probably play special teams and be a key backup now that Manti Te'o has been drafted to start.
In other AFC West notes:
The Baltimore Sun reports the Raiders signed long-snapper Nick Guess. He is being brought in for camp. He was with Oakland for a brief time last year when Jon Condo was hurt.
In an Insider piece: Mel Kiper thinks tight end Mychal Rivera, a sixth-round pick, can help the Raiders . Rivera will get a chance to play because the Raiders have a need at the position.
