Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web. Eric Weddle’s Fine Makes Positive Impact on Camp HOPE - Caroline HoweAlliance for Hope International, the organization to which Weddle donated the money, aids those affected by domestic violence. The money will go towards a camp for children exposed to domestic violence, said Casey Gwinn, the president of Camp HOPE. The camp allows children to get away from violence and simply be kids through a summer mentoring program.

Who should the Chargers target to replace Eric Weddle?

The San Diego Chargers are going to lose free agent FS Eric Weddle to another team. Now it's time to pick his replacement. If you watched my Periscope yesterday morning while I sat in traffic on the 805, you'd know that I'm pretty terrified with what the San Diego Charger are going to do with their two safety positions this offseason. Jahleel Addae has experience, is well-liked, and will probably be cheap as a restricted free agent. Expect him to be back and starting at Strong Safety again. Eric Weddle is probably the best player on the Chargers defense, but has very little interest in...

Su'a Cravens is the safety San Diego needs to fix their run defense

The San Diego Chargers need to reshape the back end of their secondary this offseason, and they could affect a lot of change by drafting Su'a Cravens out of USC. I'll never forget when the Chargers first hired him one of his first answers was, and I'm paraphrasing here, "I don't feel like the position next to Eric Weddle is important." In his 3 years as general manager Tom Telesco has proven that is exactly how he feels as he hasn't invested any draft picks at the position and signed one safety. That one safety didn't even make it through his first year. You can tell I don't think much of...

NFL free agency 2016: Is Eric Weddle worth a short-term deal for New York Giants?

The Giants need help at safety. Could they get it from Eric Weddle? Eric Weddle has parted ways with the massive beard that was part of his persona the past few seasons. The two-time first-team All-Pro free safety is also almost certainly parting ways with the San Diego Chargers after an acrimonious 2015 season. The New York Giants, as anyone who watched them try to play defense in 2015 knows, could use a quality veteran free safety to pair with Landon Collins and add leadership, stability and play-making ability to the back end of the defense. Could Weddle and the Giants be a free-agent...

Eric Weddle shaves beard, sets social media ablaze

Eric Weddle is having fun on Twitter, and making San Diego Chargers fans wish there was a way for the team to re-sign their Pro Bowl safety. Eric Weddle is fun, in that he's one of the few players around the league that isn't afraid to go away from "coach speak". Weddle is smart, he's opinionated, and he knows how to connect to his fans. Part of that has been through his beard, which does a good job of making him look like a "working-class guy" and also makes fans laugh with the @Weddlesbeard twitter account, which will regularly tweet in the first person as Eric's beard. On Monday night,...
