Chiefs go from worst to first in AFC West?
By Bill Williamson
ESPN’s Ashley Fox thinks the Kansas City Chiefs have the right mix to go from worst to first in the AFC West.
My thoughts: Well, I just got back from visiting their camp and I do think the Chiefs have a nice thing going. But going from 2-14 to beating out a serious contender like Denver may be tough duty. Still, I think the Chiefs will make some noise this season.
In other AFC West notes:
- Add another veteran receiver available to the Chargers. New England cut veteran Michael Jenkins on Thursday, and while he is not a top player, he could add depth for a team that needs it.
- San Diego receiver Malcom Floyd’s second opinion has come back with positive results, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Floyd suffered a knee strain on Monday. Initially, the team thought Floyd could have suffered a torn ACL. He will likely be ready to play in Week 1 or Week 2.
- Here is an ESPN fantasy look at whether Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is actually being undervalued. While he is injury prone, he has had success when healthy.
- In an Insider piece, the Football Outsiders look at where the Raiders will fit in for the race for South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
