Chargers hitting the streets

If you are in San Diego on Monday, you just might run into a Charger.

The San Diego Chargers have assigned Monday as “Thank you San Diego Day.”

Players, cheerleaders and several members of the organization will canvas the greater San Diego area, making surprise visits to thank fans for their support and to help build excitement as the team begins a new era.

“Monday, June 10 will be our day to say ‘thank you’ to Chargers fans and get them ready for the season,” said A.G. Spanos, the team’s chief executive officer. “We’re excited about our new leadership and direction and the possibilities that lie ahead, and we want our fans to feel that excitement.”

In other AFC West notes:

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis explained why he fired P.R. director Zak Gilbert and said he is no reflection on general manager Reggie McKenzie. McKenzie hired Gilbert.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles thinks he is a perfect fit for Andy Reid’s offense.
