Chargers training camp preview: TEs - Tom Krasovic
The rookie Henry, drafted 35th overall out of Arkansas and called a "first-round talent" by Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco, joined Kellen Winslow Sr. as the only tight ends in the franchise's 57-year draft history to go within the top-40 picks. Winslow, who went 13th out of Missouri in 1979, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame off his third ballot.

Snapchat Replay: Jahleel Addae at the Home Run Derby - Chargers.com (video)
Safety Jahleel Addae took over the Chargers snapchat at Petco Park for the MLB Home Run Derby on Monday night.

An In-Depth Look at Jahleel Addae - Chargers.com
While Addae enjoyed success on the field in 2013, he faced personal adversity at home. At the same time he was trying to make inroads with the Chargers, Addae learned that his mother, Jennifer, was battling breast cancer back in their hometown of Valrico, Florida. Thankfully, today she is cancer free. In 2014, he showed his appreciation for her courage in battling the disease by serving as an honorary chair for the 2014 & 2015 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

Ranking All 32 NFL Running Back Units - Mike Renner
I said Ameer Abdullah had one of the toughest tasks of any rookie running back last season, because Melvin Gordon undoubtedly had the most difficult. It was difficult to even evaluate his performance because of how infrequently he was presented with a clean running lane. That doesn’t excuse a serious fumbling issue (six on 184 touches), though, that could see his role reduced if he doesn’t mend it.

Philip Rivers remains underrated despite Hall of Fame career - Adam Schein
You can argue that Rivers has never been a top-two quarterback in his own conference. You can argue that Rivers is the third-most Hall-worthy quarterback in the 2004 draft class. Even if those statements are valid, I argue that, if you judge Rivers solely against Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and the Manning brothers, you're missing the entire thing. Just like if you judge Rivers solely on the stats.
