Serious Business: 9/4 San Diego Chargers Links

San Diego Chargers cutdown analysis - Bill Williamson
What's next: The Chargers on Saturday signed veteran linebacker Na'il Diggs. The 12-year veteran is a leader, and he could push for playing time at inside linebacker. San Diego will probably look at the waiver wire for help in the secondary, offensive line and receiver.
