Report: Mike Vrabel at lockout case

Kansas City Chiefs’ linebacker Mike Vrabel is reportedly one of five plaintiffs in the NFL players’ case against the NFL in a Minneapolis courtroom Wednesday.

Vrabel is in the court two days after being arrested on felony theft charges at an Indiana casino. Vrabel has stated that the arrest was a misunderstanding and he is hopeful the matter will soon be resolved. San Diego receiver Vincent Jackson is another plaintiff who is at the courthouse.

Let’s take a look at some AFC West nuggets on Wednesday afternoon:

About 30 members of the Chiefs met in Kansas City to discuss the lockout. Patience was the key message of the conversation, players said.

The Kansas City Star projects Texas linebacker Sam Acho to the Chiefs in the third round. I’m intrigued by Acho. He was impressive in his media session at the combine and he is a productive player. He could be a safe pick in the third round.

Chargers’ Kris Dielman testified in a lawsuit involving former baseball star Brian Giles.

The San Diego Union-Tribune thinks free-agent linebacker Stephen Cooper could reunite with former Chargers’ defensive coordinator Ron Rivera in Carolina. Rivera is the Panthers’ new head coach.
