  Chargers | Chris McCain limps off    Wed Jun 7, 06:43 PM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Chris McCain (undisclosed) limped off the field Tuesday, June 6, after suffering an undisclosed injury during practice. McCain has been working with the first-team defense during offseason workouts since franchise free-agent LB Melvin Ingram has stayed away from the workouts.

Footballguys view: McCain has seemed like a natural fit at the important LEO rush end position in Gus Bradley's defense. If he is out for an extended period, it could hurt the Chargers negotiating leverage with Ingram.

  Chargers | Six players ink futures deals    Tue Jan 3, 11:02 PM

The San Diego Chargers have signed OL Brett Boyko, CB Randall Evans, CB Mike Lee, LB Chris McCain, S Adrian McDonald, and TE Jake McGee to Reserve/Futures contracts.

Footballguys view: McGee has incredible hands and can adjust to poorly thrown passes with ease. He's not going to run away from any defender, and he needs to work on better ways to get open but McGee is a prospect we're monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues.

Footballguys view: Jason Fox has been a liability in James' place so this is bad news for the Dolphins offense. The injury issues in the linebacker corps could help Chris Ivory.
