Bolts can run with Le'Ron - Michael Gehlken
"There's no question he's going to be a guy we're going to lean on in the running game to be a blocker," coach Norv Turner said this week at the NFL owners' meetings. "But I like his versatility and the fact that he has run the ball. He also provides a receiver because he's got good hands."

Mailbag: L.T. to Oakland? - Bill Williamson
The Raiders need a backup. But I think they will be looking for a younger, bigger back, perhaps in the draft. I think Tomlinson, a San Diego legend, is done and I just think the Raiders could better be served with a younger backup.

Breaking down McShay's mock draft - Bill Williamson
Ta’amu has a chance to be a good player, and the Chargers need more help on defense, so I can’t argue with the choice.

Stability at QB big for Chargers - Christopher Smith
The AFC West’s quarterbacks have better resumes since Peyton Manning and Carson Palmer have joined the division in the last year, but San Diego has thrived thanks to consistent, high-level, durable play from Philip Rivers.

Dombrowski switching back to guard - Scott Bair
The move outside in 2009 was a new one for Dombrowski, who played right and left guard in college and for a spell in 2009 after spending the offseason on the outside.

2011 Yards Per Route Run: Wide Receivers - Khaled Elsayed
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be hoping for more production than Vincent Jackson (28th) managed, with the former Charger finishing three spots behind the new Patriots receiver Brandon Lloyd. Jackson’s replacement in San Diego, Robert Meachem, was all the way down in 56th, so it will be interesting to see what he can do when he isn’t the fifth favorite target of Drew Brees

Mock draft: Bolts address OL and DL - Don Norcross
Only 29 days until the Round 1 of the NFL Draft. The late Joe Stein, who worked at the San Diego Evening Tribune and Union-Tribune in a variety of roles, including sports editor, columnist and TV critic, loved the draft.
