Last year, during his first season in charge of Kansas University’s football program, coach Charlie Weis often was asked about the talents and career of former pupil Brady Quinn, who spent the 2012 season down the road with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Each time Quinn’s name came up, Weis would, without hesitation, express a sincere belief that Quinn had the chops to play quarterback in the NFL, even suggesting the seventh-year pro would win a lot of games if Weis were coaching him again.

It’s hard to argue with their track record together. During his two seasons under Weis at Notre Dame, from 2005-06, Quinn led the Irish to a 19-6 record, threw for more than 7,000 yards and added 69 touchdowns and just 14 interceptions.

5) Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs – Charles is a complete back who can also catch the ball. He’s quite explosive with great speed, so he has the ability to take it to the house from anywhere on the field, and Andy Reid generally finds a single back to use for his offense. Charles is “in charge” there, and may be used like Michael Westbrook was in Philly for so long but with a 5.8 yds/carry CAREER average, I see nothing but upside for Charles in his fantasy value and should be quite valuable in PPR leagues as well.

The Broncos and franchise left tackle Ryan Clady resumed negotiations on a potential long-term contract extension earlier this month, but aren’t close to a deal. The representatives for Clady, who is key to the protection of Manning, are preparing a counter to Denver’s offer.

On the subject of contracts, Kansas City has yet to begin substantive negotiations with tackle Eric Fisher, the top pick in the draft. But the two sides should start serious bargaining in the next week or so.
