  Chargers | Keenan Allen's resurgence rewarded    Sat Feb 3, 09:37 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen was named the Associated Press 2017 NFL Comeback Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 3.

Footballguys view: Allen was seen as injury prone and possibly not worth his big contract, but he straightened those ideas out this year. He finished strong and could be getting better with another year removed from an ACL tear.

  Chargers | Forrest Lamp could work at RG    Sun Jan 28, 01:47 PM

Los Angeles Chargers OG Forrest Lamp could work at right guard next season if the team is not able to re-sign impending free-agent OG Kenny Wiggins during the offseason.

Footballguys view: The Chargers never got to enjoy Lamp's services after he tore his ACL in training camp. He should start somewhere on the line as long as he makes a full recovery.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett should return for workouts    Mon Jan 15, 02:02 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) is expected to be on the field at some point during offseason workouts, according to general manager Tom Telesco.

Footballguys view: If Verrett can just stay healthy, the Chargers would have yet another playmaker on their defense. He's on schedule to return for OTAs and expect the Chargers to ease him back into action upon his return.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon's option should be picked up    Mon Jan 15, 01:12 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon's fifth-year option likely will be exercised this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams.

Footballguys view: When healthy, Gordon is proven as a dangerous runner with the ability to take it to the house anytime (and from anywhere) he touches the ball. Their 2015 first-round pick finally played a full 16-game season in 2017, and Gordon had the first 1,000-yard rushing season of his pro career. We'd be shocked if Gordon wasn't retained with the fifth-year option. That would give the Chargers more time to see if he could agree to a long-term deal.

Free-agent PK Roberto Aguayo (Buccaneers) was signed to a Reserve/Future contract by the Los Angeles Chargers Wednesday, Jan. 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick of the Bucs in 2016, Aguayo has bounced around to three different teams (now four) during his short pro career. He's failed with the Bucs, Panthers and Bears but the Chargers are willing to see if Aguayo can get his career on track.

  Chargers | Ken Whisenhunt will return    Wed Jan 10, 02:35 AM

Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt has reached agreement to remain with the team in 2018, according to a team spokesman.

Footballguys view: The Chargers offense, specifically their passing game, was not a problem in 2017. Whisenhunt was able to coach the passing offense to the top spot in the league with QB Philip Rivers throwing for 4,515 yards, 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Now we'll see if Whisenhunt can get more out of his 24th-ranked rushing offense in 2018.

  Chargers | Chargers expect jump from Mike Williams    Tue Jan 9, 12:53 AM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams is expected to produce more next year after a full offseason of working with QB Philip Rivers, according to general manager Tom Telesco. Rivers also feels that way and is excited to be working with Williams, citing that he feels he can 'add another dimension' to the offense.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are expecting a jump from Williams in 2018 as well. Williams has all the talent you want in a no1 WR, and he reminded many in the scouting community of a more athletic version of Plaxico Burress. He's a big-bodied target who could dominate smaller defenders in the red zone. Working with Rivers through OTAs and minicamp will only help. Williams has tremendous upside for the Chargers and in fantasy leagues if he can only stay healthy and play up to that potential.

  Chargers | Kenny Wiggins hopes to return    Sat Jan 6, 02:36 PM

  Chargers | Antonio Gates' future up in the air    Thu Jan 4, 09:39 PM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates' future with the team is currently undecided, general manager Tom Telesco said Thursday, Jan. 4.

Footballguys view: Gates is set to be a free agent in March, and it would be odd to see him in another jersey. He's a Hall of Fame tight end the Chargers found in the college basketball ranks. Having never played college football, Gates has become a force since his breakout season in 2004. Gates says he wants to be back, and the Chargers could bring him back if the price is right. Hunter Henry is their lead tight end for 2018, even if Gates does stay with the team.

  Chargers | Nine Chargers sign Reserve/Future deals     Tue Jan 2, 06:20 PM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Braedon Bowman, OG Brett Boyko, S A.J. Hendy, LB James Onwualu, DE Whitney Richardson, C Cole Toner, WR Andre Patton, WR Artavis Scott and CB Jeff Richards were recently signed to Reserve/Future contracts.

Footballguys view: Scott is a player we've been monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues. Undrafted out of Clemson in 2017, Scott has strength running after the catch and can make difficult catches seem routine.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates wants to play in 2018    Sun Dec 31, 10:26 PM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates will be a free agent after the season, but he said he still has 'the juice' and would like to play in 2018.

Footballguys view: The future Hall of Fame tight end turns 38 years old next summer, and he'd look awkward playing for another team. Hunter Henry is set to be the lead tight end for the Chargers going forward, but if Gates came back for a good price he could continue to work as a reserve player.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates feeling better    Fri Dec 29, 10:20 PM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates (illness) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and he was removed from the Week 17 injury report.

Footballguys view: In Week 17 against the Raiders, Gates makes for a fine streaming option if you're playing in your fantasy championship and need help at the position. He set season highs last week against the Jets by catching 6-of-8 passes for 81 yards and a touchdown.

  Chargers | Russell Hansbrough added to active roster    Fri Dec 29, 08:23 PM

Los Angeles Chargers practice squad RB Russell Hansbrough was signed to the active roster Friday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Missouri in 2016, Hansbrough is a change-of-pace back with some moves in the open field. Promoting him to the active roster may mean the Chargers are concerned with the health of Melvin Gordon (ankle) for their Week 17 game against the Raiders.


  Chargers | Melvin Gordon listed as questionable    Fri Dec 29, 03:56 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (ankle) is expected to play Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders despite being listed as questionable on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have called up a running back from their practice squad, so we should check back on Sunday to make sure Gordon is active. The Chargers should err on the side of playing him with a possible playoff berth on the line.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
