Manti Te'o's NFL life in earnest begins today in San Diego - Peter King
San Diego coach Mike McCoy told me Sunday, after the rookie minicamp, that the staff expects Te'o to be an every-down linebacker. He said Te'o will take his place as the starting Mike linebacker -- the strongside 'backer in San Diego's 3-4 defense, alongside veteran Donald Butler -- in team drills when OTAs begin. "Our plan is for him to play three downs, and when we scouted him, we believed that's what he'd be,'' McCoy said. "But he'll have to earn that, obviously. We're going to play the best guys, and if he's the best guy on all three downs, he'll be in there.''

With Melvin Ingram Out, Larry English Steps In - Ricky Henne
"Thank God Larry’s here," said Jarret Johnson, explaining the first thought that went into his head after learning the significance of Ingram’s injury. "The guy’s got experience and a ton of talent. He had a rough go with injuries early in his career which has kept him back, but the dude can outright play. If we didn’t have a veteran, high caliber player like Larry we’d really be hurting.

Neil's NFL Daily: May 15, 2013 - Neil Hornsby
Last year the Chargers first-round rookie was acclimated to the NFL in the role of a sub-package pass rusher. Only 18% of his plays came when the offense had less than three wide receivers on the field, with a large proportion of these coming in the single game he started. Neither was he asked to drop into coverage very often — his 13 % of pass drops putting him among the Top 5 guys most likely to rush from OLB.
