• Dodgers sign infielder Turner to Minor League deal

    The Dodgers on Wednesday signed veteran infielder Justin Turner to a Minor League contract that includes an invitation to Major League Spring Training. The coach of that Chargers team was Turner. “When you have the No. 1 defense in the league, it’s easier to play quarterback,” Turner said. "I’ve seen him at his best first-hand," Turner said. Turner pointed out that he’s outranked by General Manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer before noting that the first round isn’t the only place to find a quarterback. The notion of the first-round franchise quarterback as a necessity has become popular, but the two best teams in the NFL, Seattle and San Francisco, each found an unconventional quarterback without using a first-round pick, and each has built a powerhouse without relying on a new-age passing offense.
