What To Make Of Philip Rivers Comments About His Future - Derek Togerson
First and foremost, the Chargers want to keep Rivers in place. General Manager Tom Telesco came from Indianapolis. His first year there was 1998, when the Colts drafted Peyton Manning. His last year there was 2012, when they took Andrew Luck. If anybody understands the importance of having a franchise quarterback in place, it’s Telesco (You can hear for yourself how Tom feels about Rivers in the video attached to this story, which was recorded December 31, 2014).

Verrett, Ochocinco banter on Twitter - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
"@ochocinco: @Jfeeva_2 Line it up, bump-n-run only, no routes over 18 yards & I guarantee you lose each one." Lol oh yeah that's a bet

Charges [sic] sign Unrein as latest ex-Bronco - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
After occasional rotational reps in 2011 as an undrafted rookie from Wyoming, he took more than 400 snaps each of the next years. The high-energy, high-character country kid from Colorado, a bit of a fan favorite in Denver, totaled 40 tackles and a fumble recovery without a sack.

Chargers Sign Versatile DL Mitch Unrein - Ricky Henne
Unrein memorably became the first defensive lineman to catch a touchdown in Broncos history, snaring a one-yard pass from Peyton Manning against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012.  He played fullback in certain short yardage and goal line packages that year, when Denver’s offensive coordinator was current Chargers Head Coach Mike McCoy.

Prospect Profile: Owamagbe Odighizuwa - Ricky Henne
A physical specimen, he is versatile enough to play DE in a 4-3 or shift to OLB in a 3-4. Odighizuwa further turned heads at the Combine, finishing first in his position group at the vertical jump (39.0) and broad jump (127.0), and second in the 40-yard dash (4.62).
