  Chargers | Jarret Johnson officially cut    Wed Feb 25, 05:33 PM

San Diego Chargers LB Jarret Johnson was officially released Wednesday, Feb. 25, following his retirement.

Footballguys view: This is merely a technicality. Johnson has decided to retire, and that save the Chargers $5 million in cap space.

  Chargers | Relocation not bothering Philip Rivers    Wed Feb 25, 07:19 AM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is not letting recent talk about the team leaving San Diego influence him about re-signing. 'Is the location of this team going to be a deciding factor?' Rivers said in a radio station interview. 'I can't honestly tell you that it will be.'

Footballguys view: We'll see Rivers get an extension with the Chargers in the near future. He's had a career resurgence under head coach Mike McCoy. It wouldn't surprise us to see him get a deal that keeps him with the Chargers for the rest of his career.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews reps to meet with SD    Sat Feb 21, 12:50 PM

San Diego Chargers impending free-agent RB Ryan Mathews' reps are scheduled to meet with the Chargers at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: The Chargers should be able to keep Mathews around for a good price if they want. He's a talented runner who can be an effective starter at the pro level. However, Mathews has struggled to stay healthy and has only played a full 16-game regular season once in his five-year career. Even in that season, Mathews was hurt in the postseason. He only played six games last year, and his price should be quite low.

  Chargers | King Dunlap agrees to deal    Fri Feb 20, 07:48 PM

San Diego Chargers OT King Dunlap has agreed to a new four-year deal with the Chargers. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have locked in their left tackle with this new deal. Per Pro Football Focus, Dunlap allowed just three sacks on 625 dropbacks and his teammates voted him 2014 Lineman of the Year. The Chargers have turned their offensive line around, and it has gone from a weakness to a strength in only a couple of years.

  Chargers | SD will discuss Philip Rivers extension    Fri Feb 20, 02:17 AM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers and the team will have discussions on a contract extension at an appropriate time, but no discussions are scheduled for this week according to general manager Tom Telesco.

Footballguys view: Rivers is entering the final year of his contract in 2015. He has a $17.4 million cap hit this year, so the team could extend the contract and drop that number to clear up more salary cap space.

  Chargers | SD will meet with Ryan Mathews' agent    Thu Feb 19, 03:25 AM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews, an impending free agent, has interest from the Chargers in a new contract. General manager Tom Telesco will meet with Mathews' agent at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Footballguys view: The Chargers might want to keep Mathews around, but he's unlikely to break the bank. The talent is there, but staying healthy has been a problem for Mathews during his entire pro career.

  Chargers | Still no surgery for Philip Rivers    Tue Feb 10, 09:50 AM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) said he doesn't need surgery to repair the bulging disk in his back. 'At this point, the back injury is not requiring surgery,' Rivers said. 'We'll kind of revisit it in a month or so. But everything is improving. I'm back to my regular workouts and running around. Me and my wife played a little tennis the other day. I've hit the golf ball a few times, so I'm actually on the up and up. So I'm pretty excited.'

Footballguys view: Rivers is going to heal up this offseason, and we think he'll be somewhat limited during minicamp. Once training camp arrives, Rivers should be able to take on a full amount of his normal reps. Last season, Rivers was slowed down at the end of the year by this back injury. The team will try to get him to a point where there is no decline in Rivers play late in the season.

Former John Carroll University defensive coordinator Chris Shula was named the defensive quality control coach of the San Diego Chargers Monday, Feb. 9. Shula is the son of former NFL head coach David Shula and grandson of former Miami Dolphins head coach Don Shula.

  Chargers | Mike Nolan hired as LBs coach    Thu Jan 29, 02:46 PM

Former Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan was hired by the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Jan. 29, as their new linebackers coach.

Footballguys view: Nolan's defense was terrible with the Falcons, but he gets an upgrade in personnel with the Chargers. We like the fit for John Pagano's defense.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates still going strong    Tue Jan 13, 02:46 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates put up a very strong year in 2014 despite being written off as being too old just several seasons earlier. 'I don't even understand,' offensive coordinator Frank Reich said last month. 'I don't understand how there's no physical drop-off in his game. None. I mean, I never saw him when he was 25, but what he does off the line of scrimmage, how crafty he is and the physical skill to execute how smoothly he runs -- maybe he slowed down, but I just don't see it. I don't see any dent in the armor.' Gates' contract runs through next season, and he plans to honor it. Gates passed Lance Alworth for the most receiving yards in franchise history this year, and he also became just the fourth tight end in history to move past 10,000 career receiving yards.

Footballguys view: Ladarius Green failed to emerge this year with the way Gates continues to play. He's a favorite target of Philip Rivers, and there's no need to think his play will drop off severely until we see more of a decline.

  Chargers | Shareece Wright would like to return    Mon Jan 12, 05:30 PM

  Chargers | Austin Pettis signs    Fri Jan 9, 04:32 PM

The San Diego Chargers signed free-agent WR Austin Pettis (Rams) to an undisclosed deal Friday, Jan. 9.

Footballguys view: An interesting move for the Chargers here. Pettis was a third-round pick for the St. Louis Rams in the 2011 NFL draft, but he failed to play up to expectations. The Rams cut Pettis in October after he was late for a team meeting. He'll get a chance to redeem himself in San Diego.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers focuses on rest    Mon Jan 5, 06:23 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back, ribs) is looking forward to resting and rehabbing in the offseason after absorbing 36 sacks this season and dealing with a bulging disc in his back and injured ribs down the stretch. He may tailor his offseason workouts a bit after focusing on endurance training and mobility last offseason. Rivers won't commit to whether he'll need offseason surgery on his back.

Footballguys view: Good move for the veteran here. Rivers took a league-high 544 attempts out of the shotgun this year, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He was ranked 30th in the league in play-action passes, even though he completed a league-high 82$ of play-action passes for 495 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

  Chargers | Ladarius Green a work in progress    Fri Jan 2, 05:20 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green had just two more catches this year (19) than he did last year, but he also failed to find the end zone in 2014 after catching three touchdown passes in 2013. Green missed two games this year due to various ailments, which limited his role in the offense. He played in just 274 snaps (27% of the team's offensive snaps) this year compared to 350 offensive snaps last season. "I've got a lot to work on, from route-running, to blocking and catching -- everything," Green said, when asked about his offseason plays. "It could have been a lot better. I was hurt. I've got to try and stay healthy. And I've got to try and do what I can for the team. I've still got a lot to improve on.'

Footballguys view: Green's fantasy stock is low right now because he's been slow to develop. If you play in a deeper league, go ahead and toss out some buy low offers for the athletic tight end. Antonio Gates has one year left on his contract, but he carries a $9.7 million cap number in 2015.

  Chargers | SD hopes to keep Philip Rivers     Thu Jan 1, 09:51 AM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers and the team will work on a long-term deal, according to general manager Tom Telesco. Rivers is set to become a free agent after the 2015 season. Telesco noted he wants Rivers to retire as a Charger.

Footballguys view: It would be really difficult to imagine Rivers in any other uniform. We have a feeling the two sides will be able to come to a new contract agreement before Rivers hits free agency.

  Chargers | Donald Brown will return    Thu Jan 1, 01:02 AM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown will return for the 2015 season, according to general manager Tom Telesco.

Footballguys view: Brown may return, but will starter Ryan Mathews? The injury prone 2010 first-round pick hits free agency after yet another injury-riddled season. The Chargers might be ready to move on from Mathews.

  Chargers | Jeff Baca promoted    Sat Dec 27, 12:48 PM

The San Diego Chargers signed practice squad OG Jeff Baca to their active roster Saturday, Dec. 27. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also placed P Mike Scifres (shoulder) on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Even if the Chargers make the playoffs their annihilated offensive line mike kill them during the Wild Card round. Lucky for his fantasy owners, Philip Rivers is really good at ignoring how bad his line is. We still see him as a QB1 this week, and hope that Santa Claus is just late with the offensive linemen he asked for on his Christmas List.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back), who is playing with a bulging disc in his back, isn't dealing with a career-threatening injury if he continues to play, according to head coach Mike McCoy. Rivers is expected to play in Week 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he may sit out of practice Monday, Dec. 22, and Tuesday, Dec. 23, to rest.

Footballguys view: Rivers was on fire in Week 16. We should see him limited during practice this week, but he should be able to play against the Chiefs in Week 17. The Chargers could sneak into the playoffs with a win over the Chiefs, so Rivers could be on fire again this week.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen, Ryan Mathews could return    Mon Dec 22, 04:34 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder, ankle) and RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) could return to the lineup for Week 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Mike McCoy. Mathews has missed the last two games with a severe ankle sprain, and he hasn't practiced at all since his injury.

Footballguys view: Getting both players back would be huge for the Charges. Allen is the team's best receiver, and he gives the team a threat on the outside. Mathews is their best running back, and his punishing style can soften up an opposing defense.

  Chargers | Dontrelle Inman rises to the occasion    Mon Dec 22, 04:32 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman caught the first seven catches of his career for 79 yards in the team's Week 16 win over the San Francisco 49ers with WR Keenan Allen (shoulder, ankle) sidelined. The team is confident in the youngster, as evidenced by QB Philip Rivers' decision to throw to him on a fourth down with the game on the line.

Footballguys view: Inman came out of Virginia undrafted in 2011. The Jaguars gave him a look, but Inman went to the CFL where he was a standout player for the Toronto Argonauts for two years. Inman has good size (6'3") and the concetration to make tough catches.
