Ranking the AFC West tight ends - Bill Williamson
1. Antonio Gates, San Diego: Gates is getting older and health has been an issue. But he is still the class of this division.

The mind matters most for Chargers - Michael Gehlken
"People always ask me, 'How do you last long in this league?'" Spikes said. "You've got to be smart, and you've got to be tough. I don't want to be out there with a dumb football player, somebody who doesn't understand formations, who doesn't recognize situations."

Chargers add three names to roster - Chargers.com
Most notable is the addition of veteran strong safety Corey Lynch. The 27-year-old Lynch was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Appalachian State. After one season with the Bengals, Lynch was signed off of Cincinnati’s practice squad early in the ’09 season by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he has played the last three seasons. In 2011 he made 25 tackles and one interception.

Rivers ready to run for a cause - Jay Paris
Rivers isn't much of a runner, though, so him holding a 5K race is a bit of a head-scratcher. Until you scratch below the surface, which is always enjoyable with the Chargers' quarterback.

San Diego Chargers Sign 3 Players, Complete Offseason Roster - John Gennaro
By my count, the Chargers now have 91 players on their roster. This, of course, means that I'm wrong or that someone is about to be released because NFL teams are only allowed to carry 90 players on their offseason roster. Either way, they're filled up and these three guys are most likely the last signings the Chargers will have for the next three months.

In this edition of Insider Premium Audio, Horton joins Chris Sprow to break down the key findings and discuss how some teams have already made the right moves to improve their stock moving forward.

NFL front offices at the top - Gary Horton (Insider)
Players and coaches come and go, but the organizations that win consistently in the NFL have a well-defined chain of command within the front office. It's not a big surprise -- winning isn't a great cause for change -- but usually there is a lot of stability within these organizations.
