San Diego Chargers Daily Links: March 23, 2012

Replacing a great one - Christopher Smith
San Diego must decide how to fill the starting left guard spot previously occupied by Kris Dielman, who announced his retirement March 1. The Chargers already have two players on the roster that will get strong consideration.

Making the case for Curtis Brinkley - Ryan Gilbert
Curtis Brinkley was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2009 and has bounced back and forth from the practice squad to the active roster more times than I can track down. He’s had above average success during extended pre-season action and has made the most of his time on the field during the regular season.

Chat wrap: The available RB market - Bill Williamson
The Chargers will probably stay put at 18. They will have a lot of choices. However, if they far in love with someone like Melvin Ingram or Courtney Upshaw, they may need to move up.

Aztecs LB Burris struts athleticism - Michael Gehlken
At 6-foot-2, 236 pounds, the ex-Aztecs captain wants to prove he’s athletic enough to fit in with any NFL team, and theatrics aside, he seemed to build his case during a final audition before April’s draft.

Remaining San Diego Chargers Free Agents - John Gennaro
According to Silver Fox Columnist, the Chargers have about $6 million left in cap room. They can go over the cap now, but will need to get back under it before the start of the season, so it's possible that they would sign a few of these guys back.

Lots of talent has left division - Bill Williamson
The Chargers replaced Vincent Jackson with Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal and used the money saved for other free agents. Jackson will be missed, but he was pricey.
