1. Jamaal Charles cheered by Chiefs' offensive line moves

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (pictured) spent his offseason in Austin, Texas, where he played in college. There, he's much like you with regard to Chiefs news.

He cheered much of what transpired this offseason, though the signing of free-agent wide receiver Jeremy Maclin wasn't necessarily the addition that buoyed Charles the most.

Put the trade for former Pro Bowl guard Ben Grubbs and the signing of another offensive lineman, Paul Fanaika, in that category."    READ MORE…

2. Free-agent center Stefen Wisniewski visits Redskins

By John Kein - ESPN

"The Redskins hosted free-agent center Stefen Wisniewski Friday, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan. The plans for that visit must have occurred only a few days beforehand: On April 6, I'd been told there had been no contact between the two sides.

But Wisniewski is an intriguing player who has visited a handful of teams and had interest expressed by others."    READ MORE…

3. San Diego Chargers working out Marcus Mariota

By Bryan Fisher - NFL.com

"The Tennessee Titans and New York Jets have been mentioned as likely landing spots for the Heisman Trophy winner, but could there be another team that has eyes on the dual-threat quarterback? That might just be the case.

NFL Media reporter Albert Breer tweeted that the Chargers have moved up their private workout with Mariota one day and will put him through the paces in Eugene on Tuesday. The San Diego Union-Tribune added a report that the franchise will also have dinner with Mariota on Monday night.

Such pre-draft workouts are nothing new for top quarterbacks, even for teams that appear to have little chance of picking high enough in the order to land somebody of Mariota's caliber. That said, there is a little bit of intrigue going on in San Diego."    READ MORE…

4. Chicago Bears to host Jameis Winston for visit

By Chase Goodbread - NFL.com

"The former Florida State quarterback will make a pre-draft visit to the Chicago Bears Wednesday and Thursday, a source familiar with Winston's travel schedule told NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport. Just 15 months after the Bears' previous general manager, Phil Emery, signed Bears quarterback Jay Cutler to a massive long-term contract worth $126 million ($54 million guaranteed) through 2020, it's new GM Ryan Pace who will welcome one of the 2015 draft's top quarterback prospects.

The club's financial commitment to Cutler aside, acquiring Winston from the Bears' draft position with the No. 7 overall pick would surely require some creativity. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to take Winston with the No. 1 pick, and if they pass, it's difficult to imagine the Tennessee Titans doing the same at No. 2. With the New York Jets also in need of a quarterback and drafting one spot ahead of Chicago at No. 6, any strong interest on Pace's part in drafting Winston would have to come with a willingness to trade up for him."    READ MORE…

5. Five Things to Know About Wide Receiver Albert Wilson

By Pete Sweeney - KCChiefs.com

"Wilson played four seasons of college football for Georgia State in the program's inaugural four years.

Georgia State began playing Division I football in 2010, the same year that now-Chiefs wide receiver Albert Wilson was a freshman at the school.

In their inaugural season, the Panthers went 6-5, and Wilson finished third on the team in yards receiving, compiling 294 on 19 receptions and two touchdowns."    READ MORE…
