An interesting name hit the transaction wire last night when the San Diego Chargers released backup quarterback A.J. Feeley. Considering the fact Mike McMahon has had a poor preseason and rookie Tarvaris Jackson should be able to spend this year learning on the job and not being thrust into the starting role if something happens to Brad Johnson, Feeley’s availability should cause some interest at Winter Park.
Feeley knows the Vikings’ West Coast system very well, having played in it in Philadelphia when Brad Childress was the Eagles’ offensive coordinator. Feeley has started 13 of 18 games with the Eagles and Dolphins. The Dolphins actually had high hopes for Feeley at one time. Of course, he was cut for a reason. Feeley was outplayed by rookie Charlie Whitehurst. Philip Rivers is the Chargers’ starter.
