Ranking the 2012 Free Agents: Tight Ends - Sam Monson
It is a good year to be in need at some positions in this free agency class, and not a great year to be in need at others. Right now, the 2012 tight end crop falls into the latter category, but that’s not to say there’s no talent available at the position.

Raye didn't follow father's footsteps, but seems destined to be NFL GM - Scott Bair
Raye was a candidate to become the Chicago Bears general manager, but the job went another of the four candidates. The outcome was a disappointment to Raye, who has risen through the ranks since joining the Chargers' personnel department in 1996.

Fixing the roster — strong safety - Scott Bair
The Chargers have long sought an upgrade at this position, which is slightly unfair to Gregory. He has performed well as a complement to All-Pro free safety Eric Weddle, but his upside is limited. He won't be heavily pursued in free agency, so his familiarity with the system could be attractive if the Chargers decide to spend money on different positions.

Rivers dreams of sharing title with loyal fans - Christopher Smith
"It’s fans like you that are going to really appreciate when we get there and win that trophy for San Diego," Philip Rivers told a 34-year season ticket holder Wednesday. "We’re going to get it done, and sticking with us through the ups and downs is much appreciated."

Mailbag: College reunion in San Diego? - Bill Williamson
Rivers and Cotchery go all the way back to being basketball opponents in Alabama. They had a great working relationship at NC State and they remain close friends. But the truth is, Cotchery was available last year and the Chargers didn’t bite. He is not a top-level player, so I think the Chargers will look at several other options first.
