The Chargers need to quit being dumb and sign Joey Bosa - Ryan Van Bibber
It's incredibly dumb for the Chargers, a team that's already gone to great lengths to alienate its fans with the relocation drama. If a team releases a top draft pick before the end of their rookie contract, the money owed to that player is the least of their problems.

Philip Rivers thinks Chargers 'nailed' pick by taking Joey Bosa third overall - Will Brinson
"We feel good about where we are and we feel good about the pieces we added in free agency. And I think defensively you think about Brandon Mebane and offensively you go get Travis Benjamin and in the draft you draft Joey Bosa," Rivers said. "And I know it's still a little early to say but I think we nailed that pick at No. 3 overall. Bringing in tight end Hunter Henry, a handful of other things. Matt Slauson, we signed late from the Chicago Bears at center, looks like he's penciled in there at center. So we're better.

2016 Fantasy Football Draft Prep: San Diego Chargers team outlook - Jamey Eisenberg
Rivers lost Ladarius Green as a free agent to Pittsburgh and Malcom Floyd retired, but Allen is healthy, Gates was re-signed and San Diego added a deep threat in Travis Benjamin. Along with Steve Johnson and Woodhead, Rivers has an incredible group of receivers. The veteran should be considered a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback in all leagues.
