Corey Liuget: ‘We Can Be A Pretty Good Team’ - The Doug Gottlieb Show
It helps that linebacker Melvin Ingram will be 100 percent healthy. Remember that four-game winning streak that San Diego went on? That coincided with Ingram’s return from a torn ACL. Now he’s had an entire offseason to heal. "He looks pretty darn good if you ask me," Liuget said. "He looks more explosive. I believe he’s a little lighter. I just can’t wait to see the young guy get out there and play again. He looked terrific (toward the end of last season). He looked good. I can’t wait to see what he can do when he’s 100 percent healthy."

Chargers WR Brown sits again with sore calf - Merced Sun-Star
"He's another talented receiver that knows what to do in our system," McCoy said of Brown. "He had a great offseason, unfortunately he is a little dinged up. But he's had year in the system now so he knows what to do and it's just a matter of him getting back on the field."

Chargers shake up O-line - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
The linemen partook in their customary cross-training, designed to improve versatility and prepare for different situations that can arise during a game. The team made use of the practice more than it hoped in 2013, the position group battling injuries over the bulk of the year.

Chargers receivers take over - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
First-team receivers won the day, whether it was Malcom Floyd hauling in a deep pass in the two-minute offense or fellow starters Keenan Allen and Eddie Royal snagging short and medium passes. Royal praised Chargers defensive backs for "feisty" play. Royal, however, was scrappier. When Marcus Gilchrist picked off a pass, Royal ran him down and swiped the ball from behind, prompting chants of "Ed-die" from teammates.

Carrethers Focused on Proving His Worth - Ricky Henne
"This is completely different from last year," he said.  "There is nothing like this.  The atmosphere and tenacity is so much more intense.  Everything is just so much more."
