2012 NFL Mock Draft: San Diego Chargers Projected To Pick DE Nick Perry - Eric Stephen
Perry had 9.5 sacks as a junior in 2011, starting all 12 games for the Trojans last year. The defensive end had 21.5 sacks in his three years at USC.

Mailbag: Eddie Royal a fit in San Diego? - Bill Williamson
I’m not sure Royal will be a priority for any team, but he could be an interesting, experienced player for San Diego to look at. He could be intriguing because he’d fit both as a No. 3 receiver and as a return man. I could see the Chargers, at least, considering Royal.

Port says terminal is off-limits - Jeff McDonald

Ranking the 2012 Free Agents: Edge Rushers - Mike Carter
John Abraham is one of those players who seems ageless. Even now, as he approaches his mid-thirties, he remains a truly elite pass rusher, one you can bank on to get to the QB on a regular basis. The problem is, once players reach this sort of age, no matter how talented they are, they can potentially be just a season away from a nose-dive in form. In 2011, Abraham was the Falcons only reliable threat rushing the passer–his 59 total pressures dwarfed the 35 that Ray Edwards could manage, who was next best, and while his age may be an issue for some, you just can’t ignore the kind of production we’re talking about here. Abraham could be a bargain for a team willing to give him a short-term deal.

Paranoid Parrot - John Crean
Tolbert is carrying the ball. He's going to fumble.

Good time for Chargers to go shopping - Kevin Acee
“It’s a terrific time to be looking in a number of areas,” said Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith, whose team is expected to have more than $20 million in cap space to work with as it attempts to retain its own free agents and bring in veterans from elsewhere.
