AFC West Q&A: Minus QBs, which team in division has the best skill players? - Adam Teicher
Philip Rivers leads the way here, coming off a 4,792-yard passing season in 2015, but take him out of this equation and wide receiver Keenan Allen and tight end Antonio Gates, even at 36 years old, are the primary targets in the passing game. Should Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead provide a little more in the running game, they’ll move the ball. But they still look thin on the depth chart.

Chargers training camp preview: OL - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Robinson stepped in at center for the injured Watt last year but did not perform at a level that made his $2.3 million salary for 2016 appealing. Robinson is still recovering from an injury he suffered late in the season — he was listed as having a shoulder ailment in Week 17 — and may be a candidate for restructuring or departure.

Latest On Chargers' Stadium Efforts - Rory Parks
Hoteliers, predictably, are expected to heavily oppose the initiative, but the rest of the San Diego citizenry doesn’t seem especially fond of the idea either.

Most Consistent NFL Players Over Last 5 Seasons - John Breitenbach
Aside from 2015, where he ranked a perfectly-respectable 12th among NFL safeties in terms of overall grade, Weddle has not finished outside our top five at the position. Regardless of a potential decline, he has been the league’s most consistent safety over the past five seasons. In that span, Weddle has allowed only five touchdowns, picked off 13 passes, and deflected another 17. Weddle has given up an average QB rating of only 70.0 since 2011. Reliability is essential at the safety position—where mistakes can be crippling—making his consistency all the more impressive. We’re not convinced one of the NFL’s best safeties is finished quite yet.
