Chargers' preparation at NFL Combine the same despite high pick - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
Take the Titans. Before Ken Whisenhunt became the Chargers’ offensive coordinator last month, he already was familiar with running back Melvin Gordon. Whisenhunt was the Titans’ head coach last year, and although they had the No. 2 overall pick, he still evaluated a player the organization would target only upon trading back or if Gordon somehow slipped to the second round.

Do Chargers share high view of Ramsey? - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Even if the comparisons are based on versatility, not career projections, per se, it's extraordinary for one prospect to draw mention with the likes of Ronnie Lott, Rod Woodson and Charles Woodson.

Chargers to launch Citizen’s Initiative for downtown stadium - Vincent Bonsignore
The Chargers and Raiders utilized a Citizen’s Initiative campaign to expedite approval for the Carson stadium proposal they teamed up on in early 2015. The Rams used the same tactic to get their Inglewood stadium proposal approved. The Chargers now hope for the same success in San Diego.

Power player powwow doesn't yield stadium answers - Kevin Acee (UT$)
Ostensibly, the sides must agree on how to finance a stadium that is expected to cost between $1.1 billion and $1.3 billion (or more). The Chargers are working to launch a citizens’ initiative by the end of March with the goal of getting a measure on the November ballot that would ask voters to approve partial public funding of project.

Chargers choose downtown San Diego as location for new stadium - Eric Williams
"The multi-use facility, when combined with Petco Park, the existing Convention Center, the Gaslamp Quarter, and a revitalized East Village, would create an unparalleled entertainment and sports district that will host Super Bowls and will ideally be a permanent home for Comic-Con and a Comic-Con museum," the team said in a prepared statement.
