  Chargers | Corey Liuget's option to be declined    Wed Feb 13, 07:36 PM

Los Angeles Chargers DT Corey Liuget will be a free agent this offseason because the team will not exercise his option for 2019. The team is open to re-signing him during free agency.

Footballguys view: An easy decision for the Chargers since Liuget had a $9.5 million cap number and is not the same player he used to be. Liuget underwent successful surgery on his torn quad back in November and should be ready for training camp with whatever team wants to sign him.

  Chargers | Bolts to target a QB in draft?    Sat Feb 9, 10:47 PM

The Los Angeles Chargers will likely try to find the heir apparent to QB Philip Rivers in the 2019 NFL Draft, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Rivers still has a few more years left as a starter in the league if he wants. That being said, the Chargers would be wise to find his heir apparent. That may come in the 2019 NFL draft, even though this is not considered a great quarterback class.

  Chargers | Tyrell Williams may cost too much for LAC    Fri Feb 1, 02:26 PM

Impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams may be too expensive for the Los Angeles Chargers to re-sign this offseason, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com.

  Chargers | Tyrell Williams too pricey for Bolts?    Thu Jan 31, 09:48 PM

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams is a player that the team would like to re-sign, according to general manager Tom Telesco, but Telesco said it might not be 'realistic' to bring him back.

Footballguys view: Williams should get a lot money as a starter in free agency than the Chargers will be willing to give him. He'll have some speculative value in dynasty leagues depending on where he lands.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon to wait on extension    Wed Jan 30, 07:22 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon said he wants to wait until free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell (Steelers) signs a new contract this offseason before he considers signing a contract extension with the Chargers.

Footballguys view: Gordon's case might not be helped by Bell's contract considering Bell's handling of his last contract impasse and his history of suspensions. Chances are Gordon will get a deal more like David Johnson's than Todd Gurley's.

  Chargers | Tyrell Williams thinks he is No. 1 WR    Wed Jan 30, 07:09 PM

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams said he believes he is a No. 1 receiver in the league. He said he will work on improving his route running and blocking.

Footballguys view: Williams isn't a #1, but he added more to his crossing route/go route repertoire and should be one of the highest paid free agent wide receivers this year. Mike Williams dynasty stock is about to get a bump with his departure.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry still not 100 percent    Sat Jan 26, 01:26 PM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) said he still has not fully recovered from his torn anterior cruciate ligament and will take the next few months to continue his rehab.

Footballguys view: Henry missed all of the 2018 regular season due to this knee injury. He was able to come back in the Divisional Round of the playoffs and certainly didn't look like himself. Henry should be good to go for training camp later this summer.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers believes he'll play past 2019    Fri Jan 25, 03:41 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers is taking a 'year-by-year' mentality to his playing future but believes he has a 'handful' of seasons left, according to comments he made during a recent interview with XTRA 1360 San Diego.

Footballguys view: Rivers is not done yet. He led the Chargers to the playoffs in 2018 and they're firmly in a championship window. Rivers is in the final year of his contract in 2019 with a cap hit of $23 million with $7 million in dead money.

  Chargers | Troymaine Pope re-signed    Mon Jan 21, 12:23 AM

The Los Angeles Chargers re-signed RB Troymaine Pope to a Reserve/Future contract Saturday, Jan. 19.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Jacksonville State in 2016, Pope has already had several stops in his short pro career. He was on the Chargers active roster at the end of the regular season but he was waived about 10 days ago. Now Pope returns to see if he can impress enough to make the 53-man roster in 2019.

  Chargers | GM open to Antonio Gates continuing in 2019    Fri Jan 18, 07:06 PM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates may only come back as the team's third tight end behind starter Hunter Henry and blocker Virgil Green, but general manager Tom Telesco indicated in the recent interview that he believes he will welcome back Gates for another season.

Footballguys view: Gates wants to return and the Chargers are open to his return. It sounds like something they could make work later in the year. Gates doesn't need a bunch of offseason work so perhaps he's out of football until the summer.

  Chargers | LA Chargers sign seven to futures deals    Tue Jan 15, 02:38 AM

Free-agent DE Patrick Afriyie, LB Tre'Von Johnson, QB Cardale Jones, WR Justice Liggins, TE Vince Mayle, WR Andre Patton and CB Arrion Springs signed futures contracts with the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: He's a quarterback, so we'll keep an eye on Jones in crazy deep dynasty formats. He's got a big arm and some mobility but he's done little to impress in the pros. We'll see if that can change as he continues to develop with the Chargers.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates open to 2019 return    Sun Jan 13, 09:33 PM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates said he wants to return in 2019 if the Chargers will have him back.

Footballguys view: Gates is certainly not the player he used to be and is in the twilight of his pro career. In 2018, Gates had the second-lowest catch total in a single season (28) but he did finish with 333 receiving yards and two touchdowns. He still has great chemistry with QB Philip Rivers and could stick around in a similar role for next season. Gates is set to be an unrestriced free agent in 2019.

Footballguys view: Allen had a big play early and was barely heard from after that. He had a slight dropoff this year but is still among the fantasy WR1s heading into next season.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams registered five receptions for 94 yards on seven targets in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 13.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon ran nine times for 15 yards and a touchdown in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New England Patriots and he added an 11-yard reception.

Footballguys view: Gordon was a non-factor as injuries piled up in the late part of the season. The Chargers should be thinking extension with Gordon entering his fifth-year option season turning 26 in April.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 25-of-51 passes for 331 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 13.
