  Chargers | Travis Benjamin signs extension    Tue Apr 16, 09:21 AM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin agreed to a one-year extension Tuesday, April 16, through the 2020 season. His base salary reduced from $5.25 million to $1 million, which created $2.75 million in salary cap space. It also includes a $5.5 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Benjamin should see more playing time with Tyrell Williams (Raiders) moving on in free agency. We'll see how the Chargers plan to use the speedy veteran receiver when we get into training camp and the preseason. Benjamin is unlikely to be much of a fantasy factor but we are monitoring this situation.

  Chargers | Josh Rosen could wind up with L.A.    Fri Apr 12, 01:27 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen could wind up being traded to the Los Angeles Chargers, former Chargers standout Shawne Merriman told FOX Sports Radio on Thursday, April 11. 'The Chargers could be seriously interested, and from what I'm hearing it's a big possibility that he could end up there,' Merriman said.

Footballguys view: These rumblings have been out there for some time. In fact, there are rumors about the Chargers already offering a second-round pick for Rosen. We'll see if the Cardinals get more in exchange for the young passer or if they choose to go ahead and ship him off for less than a first-round pick.

  Chargers | Drew Lock to meet with LAC    Sun Apr 7, 05:41 PM

Missouri QB Drew Lock is scheduled to meet with the Los Angeles Chargers this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Chargers need to find the heir apparent to Philip Rivers. Lock could be a nice fit for them given his big arm and athleticism. However, the Chargers would have to move up to get him in the 2019 NFL draft.

  Chargers | Dylan Cantrell could carve out role    Sat Apr 6, 09:33 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Dylan Cantrell has a 'clear path to significant playing time' in 2019, in the opinion of Ricky Henne of Chargers.com.

Footballguys view: Deep dynasty Fantasy GMs already know...and are waiting for...Cantrell based on his college career at Texas Tech. The 2018 sixth-round pick should have a larger role this year with Tyrell Williams (Raiders) moving on in free agency. He's not overly quick or fast, but Cantrell knows how to use his 6'3" 226 pound frame to make tough catches. He's going to compete with Travis Benjamin for third on the depth chart behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams in 2019.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates could return    Tue Mar 26, 02:45 PM

Free-agent TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) could still be re-signed by the Los Angeles Chargers, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

Footballguys view: Of course he could. The Chargers are looking for Hunter Henry to play, stay healthy and showcase the supreme natural talent he has. There's not much behind Henry in terms of pass-catching tight ends (apologies to Virgil Green), so perhaps Gates would be in line for one more run.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry set for OTAs    Thu Mar 21, 09:17 PM

North Carolina State QB Ryan Finley said he has been receiving advice from Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers. 'I've corresponded with him over the phone and he's been a big help to me,' Finley said.

Footballguys view: Rivers was a star for the Wolfpack during his college days and it only makes sense that he's helping out a fellow quarterback from his alma mater. Finley is a big-bodied pocket passer who is seen as a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

Los Angeles Chargers DT and pending free agent Corey Liuget (quadriceps) said Friday, Feb. 22, he wants to play on a contending team with an established quarterback -- two things he knows he already has in L.A. 'If the Chargers come and offer me something here, within the next couple weeks before free agency and if it's good enough, I'll take it,' Liuget said. 'But if not, I'm fine with going to hit the open market.'

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Artavis Scott was re-signed to a one-year deal Wednesday, Feb. 20, according to a source.

  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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
