Chargers pick up Bennett, keep Broncos in neutral

In a little gamesmanship in the AFC West, the running back-stocked San Diego Chargers claimed former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Michael Bennett on waivers.

Why so with LaDainian Tomlinson, Darren Sproles and Jacob Hester on San Diego’s roster? Well, the running-back needy Broncos could have used him in the worst way, and clearly San Diego was aware of it.

Thus, the Chargers and Broncos each put in a claim for Bennett — and San Diego was awarded his services on the basis of having a worse record this season than Denver.

Now Tatum Bell instead of Bennett is going to have to try to carry the ball and the Broncos to an AFC West title.
