NFL: San Diego Chargers at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Arrow pointing up for Chargers TE Hunter Henry - Eric Williams
“It’s a grind of a year, and you just have to be ready for it,” Henry told The Mighty 1090 AM radio, when asked what stood out about his rookie season. “It nice to be able to know (what’s coming), because as a rookie there are a lot of unknowns and you just have to be able to handle each week.”

Rising and falling RB stock based on late-game flow - Patrick Thorman
Melvin Gordon already derived 27 percent of his fantasy points in the fourth quarter last year (28 percent in PPR) despite scoring only one touchdown, and the Chargers are projected to win an additional 2.5 games. They led for only 34 percent of fourth-quarter plays (23rd-most). Gordon’s 69 fourth-quarter rushing attempts tied for the fourth-most despite his season ending eight snaps into Week 14. Not only does this bode well for Gordon’s 2017 prospects, but it heightens the need for us to identify his backup.

LaDainian Tomlinson Offers Poignant Memorial Day Reflection - Ricky Henne
“It wasn’t a regular thing, but I ran out with that flag a few times. Every time I did it, it was such a great moment. The fans, they’d get so excited. They would get as loud as I’d ever hear them. When I would run out there, with that flag, it was just so unbelievable. It’s some of my favorite memories.”

Emergence of Spencer Pulley could leave Max Tuerk's future in doubt - Travis Wakeman
“I have a great comfort level with Spencer. That’s what he played in college his whole time there at Vandy. Slauson was great there last year, and Spencer played some there in that Cleveland game and a few other times, so I have a good feel with him”, Rivers told Eric Williams of ESPN.
