San Diego Chargers Daily Links: March 6, 2014

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

The Phenom Index: A Breakthrough in Wide Receiver Evaluation for the NFL Draft - Jon Moore
Looking at hundreds of WR prospects from 2006 through 2013–both drafted and undrafted–I tested the PI against Fantasy Points per Game through their first 1, 2, 3 and 4 seasons respectively.  This is 100% blind to any other metric like draft position, 40 time, weight, etc; just production against the PI.

Comparing The Stats Of Terry Bradshaw And Kurt Warner - Chase Stuart
We must also remember that determining which quarterback was better involves a different level of discussion than what is in today’s post, where I simply compared their statistics in the proper light. In a broader debate, you’d also want to include playoff performances. In this regard, both were outstanding: I ranked Bradshaw number two and Warner number four on my Super Bowl era list of best playoff passers. You’d also want to take into account the supporting cast of both players, although again, both have similar arguments here.

'Option' key to Donald Butler extension - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
Butler, 25, stands to receive an additional $12 million if — probably "when" — his four-year option is exercised. That must be done by the fifth day following the Super Bowl that concludes the 2016 season. Without the option, the first three years are worth $19.8 million.

WR Jones likes Bolts--should they like him? - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
The Chargers ought to add another receiver or two. It's a credit to Jones, a 208-pounder who has a knack for winning against tight coverage, that he has made it through two multi-year contracts since leaving San Jose State.
