    Barnwell's AFC West report cards: Chiefs' all-in offseason

    Bill Barnwell ESPN Staff Writer Bill Barnwell is a staff writer for ESPN.com. Follow on Twitter It's time to reflect on the 2017 offseason.

He’s been in the meeting rooms, on the field in individual drills and in the weight room. He’s been doing everything to get ready for a season that doesn’t begin for months. And, he’s doing it for the 14th straight year. A lesson from former Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, though, has helped Rivers not just get through the grind of offseason workouts, it’s helped him actually enjoy it. “I had a coach tell me early on ‘Don’t get bored.
