Free Agent Rumors
#Chargers likely to have interest in FA WR Robert Woods. Team needs a weapon in slot and Lynn worked with him in Buffalo.— Paul Maland (@PaulMalandNFL) March 7, 2017
King Dunlap - Now that Okung has been signed, we’re just waiting for news that Dunlap has been released or restructured.
Chargers LT King Dunlap earns $500K bonus if on roster March 18. Team likely to release or restructure by then. Neither has to happen today.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) March 7, 2017
Jahleel Addae - The Chargers have offered a contract to Jahleel Addae, who somehow continues to get consideration as a starting Safety. [Editor’s Note: I mean, he is okay as a starter when he’s healthy.)
Chargers offered contract to multiple in-house FAs prior to combine. S Jahleel Addae among them. Talks ongoing. Teams covet his physicality.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) March 2, 2017
Re-signing Jahleel Addae remains high-priority for #Chargers. However, with young talent on roster& deep draft class, don't need to overpay— Paul Maland (@PaulMalandNFL) March 7, 2017
Danny Woodhead - And despite efforts by the Chargers and Broncos to sign him, the Ravens swooped in and secured the services of everyone’s favorite third down back.
Source: The #Ravens are signing former #Chargers RB Danny Woodhead. He’s fully healthy after ACL surgery in 2016. Big pickup.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 9, 2017
Robert Woods - Well, so much for Robert Woods rejoining Anthony Lynn in Los Angeles. It looks like he is heading to the Rams instead.
Barring any snags, Robert Woods intends to sign a 5-year, $39 million deal, including $15 million guaranteed, with Rams, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2017
Russell Okung - Obviously the Chargers were not content to roll into next season with King Dunlap at left tackle, so they opened up Dean Spanos’ wallet for a big improvement.
I'm told Russell Okung has agreed to go the #Chargers on a 4-year deal for $53M. Guaranteed $25M— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) March 9, 2017
Kellen Clemens - The veteran backup is coming back for a fourth season because who cares about giving yourself a chance to win if Rivers gets hurt?
Chargers agreed to one-year contract with QB Kellen Clemens, source said. Will be his fourth season behind Philip Rivers.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) March 9, 2017
