The ex-Dolphins defensive back and San Diego native signed a two-year, $4.85 million contract Friday with the Chargers. Wilson, a 2004 Point Loma High graduate, joins a defense that could replace as many as two of its four starters from last year's secondary.
The Chargers hosted Stevie Johnson for a visit Friday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the player's plans. Following the departure of Eddie Royal, the Bolts are in the market for a good slot receiver. Johnson was released by the Niners this week after only one season with the team.
Derek Togerson, the lead reporter for NBC Sports San Diego is hearing that the team is interested in pursuing Greg Hardy. Reading the replies to the tweet, he says "I made a call to someone I trust." Could Telesco put aside Hardy's recent history and add a potential star player?
We will run with the rumor that D.J. Fluker is kicking inside to right guard and that the team will draft a right tackle. I've covered Andrus Peat before, and while he doesn't get beat, I'm not sure it will hold up in the NFL. I believe he has a very high ceiling and Stoner makes a solid case for him. One thing Joe D'Alessandris does is fix "waist benders and lungers." He did it with King Dunlap, he did it with Fluker, and if the Chargers draft Peat he could possibly fix that as well.
Dupree didn't go through all of the testing at the UK pro day, as he turned in an impressive performance at the NFL Scouting Combine three weeks ago. Dupree logged a 4.56 40-yard dash, a 42-inch vertical jump, and pretty much met the high combine expectation he set for himself as far back as last summer. Dupree proved to be one of the most athletic prospects available.
I believe Parker is the 2nd best player in the draft. If he falls, I don't see how you pass up on a play-maker like this. Especially now that a big piece of the puzzle has been added to the offensive line.
