Introducing Expected Contract Value - Part 5 - Bryce Johnston
The initial sample size used to run the regression analysis was approximately 1,500 "contract seasons." Each contract season is a single input record. So if a given player’s contract covered five seasons from 2005-2009, this resulted in five different contract seasons for the purpose of creating input records (even if the player was released after three seasons).

Offseason Forecast: San Diego Chargers - Dan Hanzus
The Chargers are a bit of a feathered fish right now. Not good enough to be thought of as a Super Bowl contender and not bad enough to warrant a complete overhaul. The job of third-year general manager Tom Telesco is to identify the key areas that are holding this team back and get better in a hurry. Philip Rivers is an elite quarterback, but he's 33 and has taken a pounding in recent years. The window is closing, making this a hugely important next few months for the organization.

Chargers' Remarks to Stadium Task Force (Extended Version) - Mark Fabiani
So the Chargers understand firsthand how difficult your job will be over the coming months. And at the outset of your work, we would like to thank you all for volunteering your time to trying to find a solution to this long-running San Diego stadium dilemma.

Countdown to Combine: San Diego Chargers WRs - Eric Williams
Position of need: Keenan Allen is one of the promising, young receivers in the league and Dontrelle Inman flashed at the end of the 2014 season. But Eddie Royal is a pending unrestricted free agent and Malcom Floyd turns 34 in September. So the Chargers need to add some young talent at receiver, preferably with long speed. San Diego also could use a playmaker as a return specialist.

Chargers salvo kicks off stadium talks - Dan McSwain (UT$)

At first glance, the Chargers’ statement might look like a series of threats designed to discourage politicians and pave the way to Los Angeles. But I see this as a refreshingly honest opening gambit. Today, San Diego’s fact-finding exercise may have turned into an actual negotiation, with the Chargers showing they will be happy to conduct much of it in public.
