  Chargers | Ryan Mathews entering last season with Chargers?    Tue Jul 22, 09:33 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews' rookie contract will expire after the 2014 season, which means this could be his final year with the organization, in the opinion of ESPN's Eric D. Williams. San Diego recently extended the contract of RB Danny Woodhead and added a player similar to Mathews in RB Donald Brown via a three-year pact earlier in the offseason.

Footballguys view: Mathews has a lot to play for this year. He finally played a full 16-game season last year, but he was injured in the playoff loss to the Broncos. If he produces this year, then the chances of him getting a rich free-agent contract will increase. If not, Mathews might find himself into a similar situation to what Knowshon Moreno was in earlier this year.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead extended    Tue Jul 22, 06:34 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead has signed a two-year contract extension. Financial terms were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: The Chargers wanted to wrap up their change-of-pace back, and that's what they did here. He should be in line for a similar level of production to what he had last year (around 75 catches, 100 carries) which makes him a high-end RB3 in PPR leagues. Woodhead has a current ADP of RB33 (7.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett expected to be ready    Sat Jul 19, 12:39 PM

San Diego Chargers CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) should be ready to participate when training camp begins.

Footballguys view: Verrett was the Chargers first-round pick this year. He's not the biggest corner, but he plays bigger than he size and has an incredible nose for the football. Verrett is fast to the ball, and he's known as an aggressive player who likes to make plays.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews will continue to be main RB    Thu Jul 17, 02:39 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews will continue to be the team's workhorse at running back because of his physical style, according to offensive coordinator Frank Reich. 'Ryan is as tough as a runner as I've been around,' Reich said. 'He's just a physically dominating runner. And he brings a physical presence to the game, which we love. The offensive line senses it, and they love blocking for him because of his physicality.'

Footballguys view: No shocker here. Mathews can produce when he's healthy and playing with confidence. The Chargers added Donald Brown in free agency but he's just going to be a backup for the team in case Mathews gets banged up.

  Chargers | Malcom Floyd looking forward to camp    Wed Jul 16, 12:42 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) said it was good that he was able to work with QB Philip Rivers during offseason workouts and is looking forward to the start of training camp. 'I think it's good for Philip, good for me to get that trust back,' he said. 'It's good for us to go through these plays right now so in training camp it'll be fluid and then you can run the plays without thinking,' Floyd said. He said he is not concerned about the neck injury he suffered last season and considered it a fluke event.

Footballguys view: Floyd is a favorite target of Philip Rivers, but he has struggled to stay healthy during hid pro career. By all accounts, the veteran wideout has been having a good offseason. Floyd was considered one of the top performers during the workouts. The only Chargers receiver getting drafted right now is Keenan Allen (WR12, 3.09) in 12-team PPR leagues. If Floyd stays healthy in camp, keep him on your waiver wire speed dial to begin the season.

  Chargers | Malcom Floyd confident he is healthy    Tue Jul 15, 12:33 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) said he is confident he is healthy heading into 2014. "I'm confident right now," Floyd said. "I don't have any doubts in my mind right now. It was just a fluke event."

Footballguys view: Floyd is a favorite target of Philip Rivers but he should be overshadowed this year by second-year wide receiver Keenan Allen. Currently, Allen has an ADP of WR12 (3.09) in 12-team PPR leagues. There are no other Chargers receivers getting drafted at this time. Keep a guy like Floyd or Eddie Royal on your waiver wire speed dial.

  Chargers | Brandon Flowers thinks he is top CB    Mon Jul 7, 05:41 PM

San Diego Chargers CB Brandon Flowers said he believes he is the top cornerback in the NFL. 'First off, let me just say I'm the best corner in football,' Flowers said. 'Let's get that clear. Don't let my injuries last year fool you, or take my name from the top list.'

  Chargers | Brandon Flowers considers himself best at his position    Wed Jul 2, 04:25 PM

San Diego Chargers CB Brandon Flowers has declared himself the best cornerback in football. "First off, let me must say, I am the best corner in football. Don't let my injuries last year fool you and take my name from that top list. One guy whose game I definitely respect throughout the years was (Darrelle) Revis. Coming from a system that he played in, it's a lot of man-to-man being played, him shadowing receivers, and he definitely put in that work. Not to say anything else bad about the other corners, but Revis is definitely a corner I respect in this league."

Footballguys view: Somebody get Flowers a drug test. We appreciate the confidence, but the reality is he's not even the best cornerback on his new team. If Flowers was so great, the Chiefs would have never let him go.

  Chargers | Division influenced Brandon Flowers' decision    Wed Jun 25, 09:37 PM

San Diego Chargers CB Brandon Flowers said part of the reason he signed with the Chargers is that they are in the same division as the Kansas City Chiefs and will be able to play them twice this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Flowers should push rookie Jason Verrett to the slot and give the Chargers one of the better corners they have had for a while, even with the dropoff in play that caused the Chiefs to release him.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates entering his last year in San Diego?    Wed Jun 25, 01:43 AM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2016. He will carry an estimated salary-cap charge of $8.262 million in 2015 and leave the Chargers on the hook for $2.362 million in dead money, should they choose to release Gates. Cutting him will save the team $5.9 million against their 2015 cap. Gates will be 35 years old entering the 2015 season, and the Chargers reportedly want to increase TE Ladarius Green's role in 2014.

Footballguys view: Gates' effectiveness tailed off after a somewhat hot start last year. He still has great hands and ball skills, but Gates lacks burst in his routes and after the catch, and has turned into a possession receiver in this late stage of his career. Possession receivers are not worth an 8+ million cap charge, so we don't expect Gates to be with the team under this contract in 2015. For this year, both Gates and Green will cut into each other's value and make owning a Chargers tight end an unattractive proposition, although Green has some breakout appeal very late in drafts.

  Chargers | Sign Brandon Flowers     Tue Jun 24, 05:02 PM

The San Diego Chargers signed CB Brandon Flowers (Chiefs) to a one-year deal Tuesday, June 24. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Flowers stays in the AFC West after the Chiefs released him 11 days ago. He's not the same player he used to be, but he'll give the Chargers a quality nickel corner. The Chargers were near the bottom in pass defense (29th) last year, but have added not only Flowers but also first-round pick Jason Verrett. They will be a much improved unit this year.

  Chargers | Corey Liuget better than ever    Mon Jun 23, 10:42 PM

  Chargers | Jason Verrett could be ready for training camp    Sun Jun 22, 03:34 PM

A source said San Diego Chargers CB Jason Verrett's (shoulder) surgically-repaired right shoulder remains 'right on track,' although he is not yet ready for football contact. There is a possibility that he could be on the field when training camp opens July 24.

Footballguys view: Verrett is a talented corner with good upside, and that's why the Chargers selected him in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. He's a bit undersized, but Verrett backs down from no challenge. He'll compete for a spot as the team's nickel corner as a rookie.

  Chargers | Several players excel in practice    Wed Jun 18, 08:01 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Marion Grice caught passes and made it look easy Wednesday, June 18. WR Keenan Allen ran pretty double-move routes. DE Corey Liuget and LB Manti Te'o breezed through conditioning drills after practice.

Footballguys view: Grice is a good pass catcher and could make the team as a strong fourth running back who can fill some of the role of each of the three vets in front of him in a pinch and contribute as a kick returner.

  Chargers | Host Brandon Flowers    Wed Jun 18, 03:21 PM

The San Diego Chargers are hosting free-agent CB Brandon Flowers (Chiefs) for a visit Wednesday, June 18.

Footballguys view: Flowers could start instantly, and he is used to preparing the AFC West receivers and quarterbacks, so the fit is good on the CB-poor Chargers. A new starting combo of Flowers and first-round pick Jason Verrett would be a massive upgrade from what the Chargers have sported at the position in the last few years.

San Diego Chargers CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) was more active in practice Tuesday, June 17, as he recovers from shoulder surgery. He caught overhead passes and worked in press and individual drills before sitting out team work. Verrett's feet and hands look very quick.

Footballguys view: Verrett should start as soon as he is physically ready. Even though he is small, he has an aggressive game and finely honed instincts. Our Jene Bramel compared him to Antoine Winfield, who was an elite IDP corner.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews adds muscle    Tue Jun 17, 06:54 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews showed quick cuts and bursts while running at minicamp Tuesday, June 17. He also appears to have added muscle in the offseason, and he's weighing 222 pounds, which is up seven pounds from last August.

Footballguys view: Mathews should get every chance to get 15-20 carries a game and lots of goal line looks in an efficient offense this year. He's a solid fourth round pick and a quality RB2 option.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd saw many passes go his way in practice Tuesday, June 17, as has been the case much of the offseason.

  Chargers | Vincent Brown looks fresh    Tue Jun 17, 06:41 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown looks fresh in minicamp this week after he snagged a deep pass that was contested by CB Shareece Wright Tuesday, June 17.

Footballguys view: Brown looked like a rising star two years ago, but a leg injury robbed him of most of a season and also possibly the upside to make him a starter in the NFL. This will be a big year for Brown to show that he can regain old form and seize a starting spot from Malcom Floyd, who is coming back from a gnarly neck injury of his own. Keep an eye on him in deep dynasty leagues where he has been released.

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal caught consecutive touchdowns during organized team activities Monday, June 9, with one coming off a go route. WR Vincent Brown also made several contested catches. WR Malcom Floyd is helping out CB Steve Williams, and WR Seyi Ajirotutu clicked with QB Philip Rivers.

Footballguys view: Floyd is a favorite target of Rivers, but he struggles to stay healthy. We'll see if he can finally stay healthy this season. Royal had a bounce-back season last year, finishing 2013 as the 34th-best receiver in fantasy football. Expect a similar role this year.

San Diego Chargers CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) has not be able to participate in any of the organized team activities and could miss the start of training camp, because he is recovering from shoulder surgery. Verrett has been standing close to secondary coach Ron Milus or defensive coordinator John Pagano during workouts so he can take mental reps.

Footballguys view: Verrett's shoulder issue was fixed closer to the draft than teams might have liked, but the Chargers still pulled the trigger on the undersized overachiever in the first round. This could be an obstacle to Verrett making big contributions early in the season.
