  Chargers | San Diego signs more UDFAs    Mon May 2, 01:57 AM

The San Diego Chargers agreed to terms with undrafted free-agents CB Terrell Chestnut (West Virginia), OL Sebastian Johansson (Marshall), LB Chris Landrum (Jacksonville State), OG Mike McQueen (Ohio), S Adrian McDonald (Houston), LB Tyler Marcordes (Georgia Tech), C Spencer Pulley (Vanderbilt), LB Shaq Petteway (West Virginia), OT Zeth Ramsay (Colorado Mesa), WR Deandre Reaves (Marshall), CB Larry Scott (Oregon State), RB Chris Swain (Navy) and DE Carlos Wray (Duke) Sunday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Swain is a big power back who should transition to fullback at the pro level. If he makes the team, he could help blast open holes for Melvin Gordon.

  Chargers | Bolts add several UDFAs    Sat Apr 30, 11:51 PM

The San Diego Chargers agreed to terms with undrafted free-agents QB Mike Bercovici (Arizona State), RB Kenneth Farrow (Houston), OL Tyler Johnstone (Oregon), WR Jamaal Jones (Montana), WR Dom Williams (Washington) and CB Trevor Williams (Penn State) to undisclosed deals Saturday, April 30.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Bercovici. In super deep dynasty leagues we are very interested in his development. It could be nothing, but he flashed the skill set (arm strength, athleticism, gun-slinger mentality) to perhaps develop into a player we'll be talking about more.

  Chargers | Max Tuerk could start    Fri Apr 29, 10:08 PM

San Diego Chargers C Max Tuerk's (knee) is 'coming along' after knee surgery, according to general manager Tom Telesco, and Tuerk is expected to compete for the starting center job in 2016.

Footballguys view: The Chargers need to keep working on the offensive line and Tuerk is a guy who can anchor this line for years to come.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry headed for big workload?    Fri Apr 29, 09:44 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry's blocking ability will allow him to contribute right away before replacing TE Antonio Gates as the primary pass-catching tight end down the road, and beat writer Michael Gehlken believes Henry could see more snaps this season than Gates.

Footballguys view: He can catch the ball but he's a great run blocker, which will put him on the field a lot with Philip Rivers.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry taken 35th overall    Fri Apr 29, 07:27 PM

The San Diego Chargers selected Arkansas TE Hunter Henry with the No. 35 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Another in a long line of Antonio gates replacements and in a weak tight end class. We're not expecting immediate impact here.

  Chargers | Joey Bosa will be used at DE    Fri Apr 29, 06:02 PM

San Diego Chargers DE Joey Bosa said he will be used as a defensive end in the team's 3-4 defensive alignment.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have to get after Alex Smith, Derek Carr and Paxton Lynch/Mark Sanchez as well as people like Tom Brady, Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger and Andy Dalton if they want to make a run into and through the playoffs. Bosa is a great fit and while he's not quite an elite pass rusher, he has the moves to make it to the quarterback anyway.

  Chargers | San Diego looking to move down?    Fri Apr 29, 12:32 AM

San Diego Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said the team is in a 'good spot' holding the fourth pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft and may try to trade back.

Footballguys view: There's not a great bunch of offensive line players right there and a lot of defensive talent. Further the Chargers have a lot of holes to fill, so a few extra picks would be a good plan.

  Chargers | Joey Bosa to SD third overall    Thu Apr 28, 08:23 PM

The San Diego Chargers selected Ohio State LB Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: A little surprising, but Bosa brings an aggressive pass-rush style and has really good closing speed. We love the addition to the offense here.

  Chargers | San Diego looking at Joey Bosa?    Thu Apr 28, 08:16 PM

San Diego Chargers owner Dean Spanos talked with Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer for over an hour about DE Joey Bosa earlier this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Which was a sign they were taking him, which they did. We love the pick, even if it was a bit of a surprise. He's going to help bring some heat to the pass rush, and should be a big help to this defense in a division with some good passing offenses.

  Chargers | San Diego to pass on Ronnie Stanley    Thu Apr 28, 06:30 PM

Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley will not be selected by the San Diego Chargers with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We still think the Chargers go offensive line which points to Laremy Tunsil. The Chargers could go several directions, but offensive like continues to be a high priority.

  Chargers | Ronnie Stanley an option for Chargers?    Tue Apr 26, 02:21 PM

Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley could be a consideration in addition to Mississippi OT Laremy Tunsil for the San Diego Chargers with their third overall pick in the NFL Draft, according to NFL Network's Mike Silver.

  Chargers | King Dunlap not concerned about head    Tue Apr 26, 12:18 AM

San Diego Chargers OT King Dunlap (concussion) said Monday, April 25, that he is not concerned about the possibility of another concussion. 'I'm good,' Dunlap said. 'As far as I'm concerned, if I have another one that's not the end. I appreciate people being concerned, but I'm fine. I feel great. The ankle is good, head is good. Concussions, they happen. We play a contact sport.'

  Chargers | San Diego overhauling run game    Sun Apr 24, 10:04 PM

San Diego Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said the coaching staff has been talking about how to improve the run game, and they are going to 'strip it down and start over,' possibly with a new scheme.

Footballguys view: The Chargers spent a first-round pick on Melvin Gordon out of Wisconsin last year. He's a speed back who needs room to operate. It's wise for the team to move to a system that can take advantage of Gordon's skill set fully.

  Chargers | San Diego open to moving down    Fri Apr 22, 05:41 PM

San Diego Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said the team is open to trading down in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft but that phone calls have slowed down since the first and second overall picks were traded.

Footballguys view: NEWS ALERT!!!1! Every team is open to trading their pick in the first round if the price is right. Seeing what the no1 and no2 picks just hauled in, the Chargers would be wise to consider similar offers if they arrive.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon with chip on his shoulder    Thu Apr 21, 02:05 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon said he was terrible in his rookie season, and he has something to prove in 2016. In addition to having a full season under his belt, Gordon says being able to train in the offseason is a major advantage. He knows the system. He knows his teammates. Perhaps most importantly, he's on hand for day one of the offseason program.

Footballguys view: It would help if Gordon had some blockers. We think he has the talent but he's not a talent like Adrian Peterson or Barry Sanders - he's not making lemonade out of bad blocking. If he can get help opening lanes, Gordon should be a solid RB2.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen looks to add speed    Mon Apr 18, 10:30 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) completed his first day of voluntary workouts Monday, April 18. He is looking to cut weight this offseason and add speed.

Footballguys view: Allen has tremendous talent, but he just needs to stay healthy in order to shine with the Chargers. We'll see if he can do that this year. If healthy, Allen is at least a WR2 with WR1 upside for fantasy owners.

  Chargers | Laremy Tunsil an option for Chargers    Thu Apr 14, 06:48 PM

Mississippi OT Laremy Tunsil is now a draft consideration for the San Diego Chargers with their third overall pick, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com. In that case, La Canfora believes OT King Dunlap would move to right tackle.

  Chargers | Laremy Tunsil an option for Chargers    Thu Apr 14, 11:33 AM

Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil is now an option for the San Diego Chargers, who are likely to stay at No. 3 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, after the Los Angeles Rams traded up for the No. 1 overall pick Thursday, April 14.

Footballguys view: With the Titans out of the top spot, Tunsil should be there when the Chargers pick at no.3. They need to continue building their offensive line, and Tunsil has the makings of a franchise tackle in the pros.

  Chargers | Waive Brad Sorensen    Wed Apr 13, 05:45 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Brad Sorensen was waived with a non-football injury designation Wednesday, April 13.

Footballguys view: The Chargers are going with Kellen Clemens and Bryn Renner as the QBs behind Philip Rivers. We should see them address the position at some point in the NFL draft.

  Chargers | Robert Nkemdiche visiting Chargers    Wed Apr 13, 03:21 PM

Mississippi DE Robert Nkemdiche is visiting the San Diego Chargers Wednesday, April 13.

Footballguys view: Nkemdiche has the natural physical talent to be a consideration as a top-10 pick. The Chargers have the no.3 overall pick, and they're likely to wait on a player like Nkemdiche until the top of the second round. Nkemdiche never played up to his potential at Ole Miss, and he comes with some off-field baggage.

Mississippi OT Laremy Tunsil is visiting with the San Diego Chargers Monday, April 11, according to a source. Tunsil will visit with the Tennessee Titans next.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have the 3rd-overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. There's a chance that Tunsil is still on the board at that time...especially if the Titans trade away the 1st-overall pick.

  Chargers | San Diego to meet with Paxton Lynch    Fri Apr 8, 08:25 PM

Memphis QB Paxton Lynch is scheduled to meet with the San Diego Chargers Saturday, April 9, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Chargers need to find a QB of the future to groom behind Philip Rivers. Lynch has good size, arm strength and the athleticism to keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. He could be an option for the Chargers with a premium pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

  Chargers | Brandon Mebane is one-and-done candidate    Wed Apr 6, 11:09 PM

Only the first year of San Diego Chargers DT Brandon Mebane's contract is guaranteed, giving him $2.5 million to sign and $3 million base salary. At 31, he needs to play at a high level, as the team can evaluated him after one year and potentially move on with little consequence if it doesn't work out in 2016.

  Chargers | Myles Jack could play safety    Wed Mar 30, 03:06 PM

UCLA LB Myles Jack expects to play safety if he is drafted by the San Diego Chargers. Following conversations with the Chargers during the NFL Combine, Jack said San Diego envisions him as a defensive back. They had Jack perform defensive back drills and see him as a possible replacement for Baltimore Ravens FS Eric Weddle. The Chargers hold the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Jack's versatility will make him transcend a "home" position if he lands with a creative defensive coordinator. As long as his knee checks out, he should be a top 10 pick with a shot at going as high the Chargers' #3 pick.

  Chargers | DeForest Buckner in San Diego    Wed Mar 30, 10:24 AM

Oregon DE DeForest Buckner is visiting the San Diego Chargers Wednesday, March 30.

Footballguys view: Buckner is a disruptor with length and size (6'7" 291) who can be as impactful as Calais Campbell in the Chargers 3-4 defense. If he goes #3, Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil goes #1 and Cleveland takes a quarterback #2, Dallas would have their choice of Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey, Ohio State DE Joey Bosa, and Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott.

  Chargers | More big plays from Melvin Gordon?    Wed Mar 23, 12:52 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) is expected to break more big plays after surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee in the offseason, according to head coach Mike McCoy. McCoy hopes the addition of new offensive line coach Jeff Davidson will help create more consistent play up front.

Footballguys view: The offensive line is key, as Gordon had no room to run in 2015. Danny Woodhead should still play a large role in the backfield, but Gordon is going 3-4 rounds later than he was in 2015, and with a better chance at fantasy relevance.

  Chargers | Cardale Jones meets with San Diego    Sun Mar 13, 08:09 PM

Ohio State QB Cardale Jones met with the San Diego Chargers following his pro day workout Friday, March 11.

Footballguys view: Jones would be an interesting mid-round pick for the Chargers. Philip Rivers is still their franchise QB, but they need to start grooming his replacement. Jones is big, athletic and has a rocket arm. However, his game needs to develop savvy as his mechanics and accuracy need work.

  Chargers | Casey Hayward agrees to terms    Sun Mar 13, 03:56 PM

Free-agent CB Casey Hayward (Packers) agreed to terms with the San Diego Chargers Sunday, March 13, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A slot corner in Green Bay, Hayward should be counted on to start on the outside for the Chargers. In 2015, Hayward had a career-high 65 tackles and seven pass breakups. He might be able to best those numbers with a larger role.

  Chargers | Dontrelle Inman re-signs with Chargers    Sun Mar 13, 02:34 PM

San Diego Chargers exclusive-rights free-agent WR Dontrelle Inman re-signed to an undisclosed contract Saturday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Inman was an Exclusive Rights Free Agent, and like all ERFAs he had a choice...play for the team he's with or stop playing football. It was pretty easy to see this coming as the Chargers need WR depth, and Inman should compete for the 4th or 5th spot on the depth chart in 2016.

  Chargers | James Hanna visiting Chargers    Fri Mar 11, 10:47 AM

Free-agent TE James Hanna (Cowboys) will visit the San Diego Chargers Friday, March 11.

Footballguys view: The Chargers kept Antonio Gates, but they lost Ladarius Green to the Steelers. Hanna is a good all-purpose tight end who could back up Gates in 2016.
