Turner: Antonio Gates is physically 'back' - Michael Gehlken
"Gates looks great — he's back," Turner said. "Physically, he's back to where we want him to be. I think, like anybody, going through this offseason program helps you get better. (It's) the combination of conditioning, the combination of getting better in the areas you can improve, and being out there with your teammates."

Le'Ron McClain gives Chargers options - Bill Williamson
"The guy I’m really excited that we added in the offseason is Le’Ron McClain, because he’s a very versatile player and he’s a big old-school fullback," Turner said in a radio interview. "But he’s a good runner, he’s got good catching skills and I think he’ll be a big addition."

2012 Tamme Index - Wide Receivers - Mike Clay
Brown may not see a ton of snaps with Eddie Royal manning the slot, but he’d immediately step into 50-plus snaps every week if a starter went down. Add him and consider him WR3 material.

Chat wrap: Robert Meachem's impact - Bill Williamson
Robert Meachem will be given a huge opportunity. He has great speed and he is a vertical threat. That is perfect for Philip Rivers' arm and Norv Turner's scheme. They expect him to be a difference maker. I think health is the key for him.

Managing Expectations of Melvin Ingram - Richard Wade
Is all hope lost? Yes, but that has no bearing on this discussion.

Contract terms for Chargers' draft picks - Michael Gehlken
The Chargers became among the first NFL teams to sign all their draft picks this week, doing so before several others — such as AFC West rivals Broncos and Raiders — had signed one.

11 value picks to remember for August - Joe Fortenbaugh
Philip Rivers, QB, San Diego Chargers: Since 2008, only Drew Brees has amassed more passing yards (19,553) than Philip Rivers (17,597). But a 20-interception campaign in 2011 that contributed to the San Diego signal-caller’s worst QB rating in five seasons will have many owners wondering if Rivers is capable of rolling up the stat lines necessary for a championship run. I’m willing to gamble that last season was more of a fluke than an emerging trend.
