Los Angeles Chargers defensive Mount Rushmore

Compiling a list of greatest defensive players in Los Angeles Chargers history won’t be as cut and dry as it would be for the offensive side of the ball. The Chargers have forever been defined by names such as Coryell, Fouts, Tomlinson, and Rivers.

With a number of high-profile quarterbacks performing at their school’s recent pro days, the first one we hear of where Chargers’ offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt is in attendance is Missouri’s, where quarterback Drew Lock was obviously the main attraction.

Chargers present at WVU pro day, set to meet with QB Will Grier

All 32 teams made the trek to West Virginia’s pro day to take in the numerous NFL draft prospects in this year’s class, including quarterback Will Grier, left tackle Yodney Cajuste, wide receivers David Sills and Gary Jennings, and fullback/tight end Trevon Wesco. One NFL scout in Morgantown, W.V., just texted that QB Will Grier “put on a show” for NFL Teams in attendance and predicted he’s “a riser.” The WVU QB is expected to meet with at least 10 teams before the draft, including the Giants, Redskins, Chargers, Pats and Saints.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 21,...

But the real question is, what’s next for the Chargers. Here is my take on the upcoming season for the Bolts.

Chargers, LB Nwosu attend USC pro day

It’s not surprising to see the Chargers sending representation to the local pro days to find some homegrown talent, much like last year when they snagged LB Uchenna Nwosu from USC and C/G Scott Quessenberry from UCLA. Today it looks like the team is back at USC with a little help from Nwosu, likely doing what he can to help court some of the Trojan players.

How will the Chargers replace Tyrell Williams?

Well, dang. With Tyrell Williams chasing the bag and signing with the Oakland Raiders for $44 million across the next four years, the Chargers had to say goodbye to one of Tom Telesco’s greatest UDFA finds. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the last couple years, you can likely recall Tyrell’s breakout season in 2016 when Keenan Allen was lost for the year after an ACL injury in week one of that season. Williams went on to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark after catching 69 passes and seven touchdowns, taking full advantage of the gleaming opportunity in front of him. Each of...

Chargers 7-round post-free agency mock draft

There are just over five (5) weeks until this year’s draft and quite a few things have changed since the havoc of free agency was unleashed upon us last Wednesday evening. Scores of players have signed with new teams which means that a number of team’s needs have changed and numerous draft strategies are no longer what they used to be. When it comes to Tom Telesco, the coupon God, however, his strategy is pretty much the same, even with signings of veteran linebacker Thomas Davis and quarterback Tyrod Taylor. And of course we are only past the initial wave of free agency but I cannot...

Breaking: Chargers re-sign WR Geremy Davis

The battle for WR3 just got a little more crowded. On Tuesday evening, the Chargers announced that they have re-signed wide receiver Geremy Davis for the 2019 season. The 6-foot-3, 211-pound wide receiver was a standout on special teams in 2018. He appeared in 14 games and collected 13 total tackles. Davis also contributed in the run game by being one of the Bolts’ best blocking receivers after being one of the last players to make the final 53-man roster at the start of the season. Heading into the 2019 season, the Chargers will be looking to find out who’s going to step up and take...

You see, a lot of teams use this time to either plug-up some major roster holes, completely overhaul their team identity, go all-in and make a run for the Super Bowl, or even tear down their roster to start the rebuilding process. However, the Los Angeles Chargers have a different type of philosophy. As NFL teams are actively wheeling-and-dealing...
