AFC West notes

As expected, Oakland running back Darren McFadden is making continued progress from a foot injury that prematurely ended his 2011 season.

Peter King of Sports Illustrated thinks tight end Dallas Clark very well could end up in Kansas City. If he’s healthy (big question), he's worthwhile as a backup.

The Raiders signed several players who tried out during their recent minicamp. All of them will have to fight for a roster spot. The Chargers also signed a couple of players they just gave tryouts.

UPDATE: U-T San Diego clarified the Chargers’ signings.

Another example why Kansas City’s Romeo Crennel may be the nicest coach on the planet: He reminded his players at minicamp on Sunday to call their mothers on Mother’s Day. He said he knows that players can be forgetful.
