Top 10 NFL RBs set to hit free agency - William Moy
The biggest question the 32-year-old Woodhead this offseason is how he recovers from a torn ACL that cost him virtually all of the 2016 season. When healthy, Woodhead has proven that he’s capable of being one of the premier pass-catching threats out of the backfield. Woodhead led all running backs with 755 receiving yards in the 2015 season, and his 1.91 yards per route run mark ranked fourth among all RBs who received at least 50 targets in 2015.

A Rex Ryan disciple, Chargers' Anthony Lynn rejects players' coach label - Eric Williams
"Players have always played hard for me," Lynn said. "I feel like I’ve always got the most out of players. But I’ll be honest with you -- I have got the most out of them because of fear. I don’t have a lot of players calling me, asking me how I’m doing. But Rex has the personality where guys call him all of the time.

Top 10 NFL CBs set to hit free agency - Nathan Jahnke
Amukamara spent years with the Giants, consistently grading out just above average. He signed a one-year prove-it deal with the Jaguars, in which he proved he is still a slightly above-average cornerback. He has never been one to record many interceptions, but that hasn’t stopped him from preventing catches at a better rate than plenty of other cornerbacks. The players above him on this list may have a higher ceiling, but with Amukamara, you’re likely getting exactly what you expect. He will be an alright option as a No. 2 cornerback, but ideally, a team can use him as an outside cornerback just for nickel sets.

Five moves each AFC West team should make this offseason - Bill Barnwell
Addae has been inconsistent and has the reputation of being a headhunter, but he played well after missing time with a fractured collarbone last year. He's not worth overpaying, and the Chargers shouldn't go after the even more frustrating Johnathan Cyprien just by virtue of his experience playing with Bradley. If Addae heads elsewhere, the Chargers will be better off addressing safety on draft day.

Anthony Lynn sees untapped potential in Melvin Gordon - Eric Williams
"I’ve watched some tape on him," Lynn said. "Man, he has some upside. He did a hell of a job from his rookie year to his sophomore year. And I told him we can take this to another level. We’re going to do some things running-wise that I can think can help him."
