  Chargers | DeShone Kizer working out for Chargers    Fri Mar 24, 09:32 AM

Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer is working out for the Los Angeles Chargers Friday, March 24.

Footballguys view: The Chargers need a QB to groom behind Philip Rivers, and Kizer could be that guy. He's big, athletic and has a rocket arm....but there's a lot to work on. He's inconsistent with decision making and tends to lock onto his initial read rather than anticipate where other receivers will be in the play. Kizer has tremendous upside, but he's not ready to start in the NFL yet.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Branden Oliver re-signed to a one-year contract Thursday, March 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

  Chargers | Patrick Mahomes works out for Bolts    Thu Mar 23, 10:05 AM

Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes had a private workout with the Los Angeles Chargers last week.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have a high enough pick to be putting on a show and trolling for trade interest. The New York Jets are doing the same. That doesn't preclude the idea they might fall in love with a quarterback, but the Chargers should be able to get a little more out of Philip Rivers and have other, bigger needs.

Footballguys view: Inman played well this year with Keenan Allen out, and should have a role next season as well. The Chargers were smart not to overpay though, and will gamble that if last year wasn't a fluke, they won't have to pay a ton to keep Inman.

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent QB Kellen Clemens will sign a one-year contract extension Thursday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Clemens has done a fair job of sticking around in the league despite being a mediocre quarterback option. He'll back up Philip Rivers, but shouldn't see the field barring disaster.

Los Angeles Chargers LB Melvin Ingram received the franchise tag Monday, Feb. 27.

Footballguys view: It's a non-exclusive tag, so other teams can negotiate with Ingram. He's got 18.5 sacks over the last two years and he's a key piece of what could be a dangerous Chargers defense in 2017.

San Diego Chargers impending free-agent LB Melvin Ingram is expected to receive the franchise tag before the franchise tag deadline Wednesday, March 1.

  Chargers | Jared Odrick an option for Chargers?    Wed Feb 22, 03:48 PM

Free-agent DE Jared Odrick (Jaguars) could receive some interest from the Los Angeles Chargers this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams.

Footballguys view: Elbow issues held Odrick to only six games in 2016. He is a part-time player at this point in his career. However, his versatility and ability to play both end and tackle should get more than a few teams interested in his services on the open market.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin could be used as a punt returner next season. Benjamin was the punt returner during the early part of 2016 but struggled with his decision making and was replaced.

Footballguys view: Benjamin has the speed to make field-flipping plays as a return man. He'll be given another look at the return position. Fantasy owners who get points for return yards or at least return touchdowns need to keep this in mind.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon can do better    Thu Feb 16, 04:34 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon can take his game to another level, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. Lynn said he's going to work with Gordon in an effort to make him better as a runner. 'When I look at the tape, I say, 'Oh my goodness, we can help him get better here and here.' And he's already good, but there's more yards [to be gained],' Lynn said. Lynn was a running back himself in the NFL and believes his experience and insight can help Gordon achieve his full potential.

Footballguys view: We'd like to see that, but as the saying goes "you can't produce from the trainer's table." Gordon has missed games both of his first two seasons and that isn't helping his development. Hopefully the Chargers can help him remain healthy so he can reach his potential.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett's option should be exercised    Mon Feb 13, 06:59 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett likely will have his fifth-year option exercised this offseason.

Footballguys view: Verrett has yet to play a full 16-game season since the team selected him in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. He appeared in four games last year, and his season was cut short due to a knee injury that required surgery (left ACL). When healthy, Verrett has the ability to shut down some of the best receivers in the game.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers on top of dubious list    Thu Feb 9, 08:42 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers has the most touchdowns of any quarterback in NFL history that has never appeared in a Super Bowl. He's thrown 314 touchdown passes, placing him in first on the list, with former NFL QB Warren Moon closest behind with 291. Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is third, having recorded 285 passing touchdowns, while former NFL QB Vinny Testaverde is fourth with 275.

Footballguys view: Rivers has the sort of career that should get Hall of Fame contention, but likely won't if he doesn't end up in a Super Bowl and even that might do it. Last season was very rough for the quarterback, and a new coach and staff is going to have its work cut out for them to get him back on track and cut down on the turnovers which plagued him in the second half of the season.
