Mike McCoy Provides Update on Woodhead, Bosa and More - Chargers.com
Matt and Brandon are two old school players that we are very pleased with. They bring a toughness/nasty attitude to our lines that we love. All they do is show up every day and work. They only know how to do it one way. In the short amount of time they've been here, they've had a positive influence on both the offensive and defensive line.

Six Cold Hard Facts on the Chargers Offseason - Ricky Henne
"There’s no doubt that he is ultra-fast.  I have never been around a receiver that fast….He is lightning fast. When you are that fast as a wide receiver, it opens things up so much for you and the other receivers (underneath) because defensive backs are scared to get beat deep.  They are told, you maybe can make (a big) play, but just don’t get beat for a touchdown deep.  Well, everyone around the NFL respects his speed, and he can get in and out of breaks, so he can get open on a wide variety of routes. And he can open things up for other receivers as well."

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon finishes offseason confident in knee, knowledge of offense - Eric Williams
"I'm pretty good," Gordon said Wednesday. "I think I'm making some cuts I need to make. At first I was missing some cuts that I thought I could make, that I was seeing, but I didn’t feel I could get there. Now, anytime I see a cut or a cut that needs to be made, I can make it."

101 best NFL players right now - Sam Monson
The highest coverage grade in 2015 among corners that played primarily on the outside was from Jason Verrett. He also had an outstanding grade as a rookie, albeit in a season cut short by injury. The numbers and tape suggests that Jason Verrett is on the verge of becoming one of the league’s best cornerbacks if he can stay healthy and on the field. That is the big knock on his play; in two NFL seasons, he has missed time in each, and has been a little lightweight against the run. However, in terms of pure coverage play, there have been few better CBs over the past couple of seasons.
