Dontrelle Inman signs tender with Chargers

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman signed his restricted free agent tender with the team on Tuesday. Inman was given a second round tender by the Chargers prior to the start of free agency. The tender carries a value of $2.746 million for the 2018 season. Inman was free to seek contract offers from other teams but elected to re-sign with the Chargers. His tender would have entitled the Chargers to a second round draft pick in compensation should Inman left for another team by signing an offer sheet and the Chargers had declined to match. Inman emerged as a full-time starter for the Chargers last season and caught 58 passes for 810 yards and four touchdowns. In three seasons, Inman

Ryan Leaf wants to be a role model for today’s young quarterbacks

Monday, April 24th, 2017

Ryan Leaf was the second pick of the 1998 NFL draft. It’s fairly amazing how self-aware Ryan Leaf has become given that he’s known for being anything but. Leaf is known as one of the NFL draft’s big busts after being selected second overall by the San Diego Chargers in 1998.

Joey Bosa still absent as Chargers begin Phase Two

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

When the Chargers opened Phase One of the offseason program, defensive end Joey Bosa didn’t show. Not many noticed. Now that Phase Two has begun, Bosa’s absence has become more conspicuous. On Tuesday, first-year head coach Anthony Lynn commented on the situation. “Ideally, yeah, you’d like everyone here,” Anthony Lynn said, via the San Diego Union-Tribune. “We’re a team.” So where’s Bosa? “Your guess is as good as mine,” Lynn said. “Joey and I talked first day, and he’s training with his guy somewhere. Like I say, I’m only focused on the guys that are here and trying to build a team.” The workouts are voluntary, and Lynn’s “you’d like everyone here” arguably tiptoes on the wrong side of the

Joey Bosa working with trainer in Florida rather than attending voluntary workouts

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

SAN DIEGO -- For a second straight season, there appears to be a strain between the Chargers' brass and talented defensive end Joey Bosa. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn confirmed to reporters here at Chargers Park on Tuesday that Bosa has been working with his personal trainer in Florida away from the facility the last two weeks, rather than attending voluntary workouts at Chargers Park. Bosa also did not attend the start of Phase II offseason work for the Chargers on Tuesday. Bosa missed part of offseason work and all of training camp his rookie year due to a contract dispute over offset language in his rookie contract. Once the contract dispute was resolved, Bosa suffered a hamstring strain

Joey Bosa, last season’s high-profile holdout, absent as Chargers start offseason workouts

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

NFL teams can’t fine players who don’t show up, but everyone knows the deal: You’re expected to show up. You’d think that after last season’s contract fiasco, Joey Bosa wouldn’t create any waves. The Los Angeles Chargers defensive end had the messiest rookie holdout we’ve seen under the current collective-bargaining agreement, but still won NFL defensive rookie of the year anyway.

Chargers should make a run at Richard Sherman

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

As the trade talk involving Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman lingers, there’s one destination that makes too much sense to ever happen. The Los Angeles Chargers. Apart from the familiarity between Sherman and new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, Sherman is a Compton, California native whose presence would instantly boost the newcomers to L.A. in their competition for the hearts, minds, and wallets of the citizens of the City of Angels. In a sport that remains at its core an entertainment business, a significant potential benefit would come from marketing a great player with a dynamic personality in a major market that has gone from zero to two NFL franchise in the last 15 months. So what

Greg Cosell's NFL Draft Preview: Corey Davis is my top wide receiver prospect in this draft (Shutdown Corner)

Thursday, April 6th, 2017
Western Michigan’s Corey Davis, in my opinion, is the best receiving prospect in this year’s draft. I think he has a chance to be a big-time NFL receiver.

Bills players buying in to McDermott's focused message (The Associated Press)

Monday, April 3rd, 2017
On his fifth coach and after 11 years of missing the playoffs, Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams acknowledged he might have needed a little nudge to return and play another season in Buffalo. One chat with Sean McDermott was all it took to erase any of Williams' lingering apprehensions regarding the team's direction under its new coach. Rather than rebuild from scratch, McDermott spelled out a win-now vision to the team's longest-active player and most respected leader.
