Chargers Have Solid QB Depth Behind Rivers - Amy Richau
It would be surprising if the second quarterback on the Chargers roster wasn’t Clemens. He is the veteran of the three quarterbacks behind Rivers with 10 years of NFL experience with a variety of teams including the Rams, Texans and Giants. Clemens has the experience of starting games and coming into games and playing well when needed.

No Charger like WR Malcom Floyd - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
Floyd plans to retire after the 2015 campaign. The wide receiver led San Diego in receiving last season for the second time in three years. It also was the second 16-game season of his career, dating back to his 2004 rookie season.

Ex-Chargers coordinator passes away - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"I will always think of Bill Arnsparger as one of the greatest defensive coaches in NFL history," said Dean Spanos, Chargers chairman of the board. "He was a key ingredient in the Chargers’ success in the early ‘90s, including the team’s appearance in Super Bowl XXIX. When he came to the Chargers as a member of Bobby Ross’ staff, he brought immediate credibility to the defense.

Scout's take: Can Melvin Gordon be elite? - Eric Williams
"Just on tape I thought there was a huge drop-off from Gurley to Gordon, and I don’t think that I’m alone there," Williamson said. "He (Gordon) ran through some big holes, and I don’t think he’s accomplished yet in the passing game. I don’t think he’s much of a route runner and great in protection yet. I would bet that’s Danny Woodhead’s job."

Jason Verrett, Nick Hardwick Spark Record Bolt to the Q - Ricky Henne
"It was so good seeing (Verrett) at the finish line," Hardwick added. "I’m proud of the young man.  He’s a heck of a hitter, and he’s going to be a staple in this community for a long time to come if he keeps up work like this."
