Rosario Looking to Make Immediate Impact for Bolts - Ricky Henne
As expected, a tight end has been making plays all over the practice field for the Chargers so far during training camp. And while yes, that does apply to Antonio Gates, fans will be pleased to know that we’re talking about Dante Rosario, the free agent addition from Denver.

Reserves benefit from veterans' rest - Scott Bair
"We have guys at their positions that we need to get more looks at," Turner said, referring to the veterans who didn't practice. "It rests the veterans who were kept out and gets more reps to guys that really need them."

Free Agency Roundup: Demorrio Williams -
The San Diego Chargers were active in free agency this offseason, adding top-end talent to an already rich roster. Here’s your chance to get to know the newest Chargers as we continue our preview through training camp with outside linebacker Demorrio Williams.

Vincent Brown impressing Chargers - Bill Williamson
The way Brown has performed so far in training camp and the way he has been used suggest he could be in for a big increase in production in his second season. As the Chargers move away from the Vincent Jackson days (he signed a monster deal with Tampa Bay), Brown will be part of an ensemble cast that includes incumbent starter Malcom Floyd and free-agent pickups Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal.

Melvin Ingram earns high praise - Bill Williamson
"He’s explosive," Rivers said without hesitation. "What stands out to me is he’s a football player. He played all over the place at South Carolina and he has been doing that here. He looks comfortable. You can tell he belongs. I’m glad we got him."

Chargers practice notes - Bill Williamson
As expected, the team worked on the Wildcat some Friday. The Chargers will likely use it from time to time now that they have Ronnie Brown, the running back whom Miami used effectively in the formation, on the roster. San Diego coach Norv Turner said the team could use the formation three or four times a game depending on the opponent.

Cason aims to continue to improve - Scott Bair
"I watched my entire season on film," Cason said. "Everyone has an opinion on it. I do, too. For as tough as others may have been, I'm much harder on myself. I feel like I did a lot of good things, but there were some games and some big moments I didn't like and that people can definitely talk about. But I'm confident in what I can do and, honestly, I'm not worried about anything after that."

Duel for nickel back job heating up - Scott Bair
"The competition for that job will be ongoing throughout the early portions of camp," Chargers coach Norv Turner said. "But Marcus has missed some time and Shareece (Wright) has really taken advantage."

New Fullback McClain a Key Addition for Chargers - Ricky Henne
"Le’ron is going to be a big, big part of this offense," said Turner. "He has multiple skills and is physical. It’s fun to be around him every day. He has high energy and loves the game of football. He knows what it takes to play at a high level so he’s going to be a big part of what we do."
