Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

JVM: Cornerbacks - Chris Phillips
Vontae Davis was PFF’s 3rd highest graded corner in 2013 for the regular season. His +12.8 coverage grade ranked 2nd and he also only allowed 50% of passes thrown his way to be completed. The Colts seem intent on letting Davis test the market. After most likely getting a big raise, we might not be seeing Davis on this undervalued list next year.

Give NFL points for considering change - Kevin Acee (paywall)
Word leaked Monday that the NFL Competition Committee is mulling a proposal in which PAT placements would originate from the 25-yard line. When accounting for the 10-yards depth of the end zone and eight yards from the snapper to the holder, that would make a PAT kick 43 yards.

Run Stop Rates 2013 - Aaron Schatz
The tables below are limited solely to running plays, including scrambles. We give Run Stop Rate as well as number of Plays and number of Defeat -- a combination of tackles for loss, forced fumbles, and tackles to prevent a third- or fourth-down conversion -- plus yards per play, which is the average length of a run past the line of scrimmage when this player had a tackle or assist.

Legislating Language: Will the NFL Ban the N-Word - Peter King
One current All-Pro calls the idea ‘atrocious.’ But one Hall of Famer argues it's dishonorable for today’s players to use the word. The NFL is now stuck in the middle as it considers passing a rule to penalize those who use it on the field
