OC Ken Whisenhunt's Key Takeaways from Mini Camp - Hayley Elwood
“It worked pretty good last year. Both of them were productive. There’s going to be different things different weeks, but we’re still going to try to utilize both those guys. It’s good to see Antonio out here. He’s looking good. But we’re not going to ignore the fact that Hunter is really coming along as a young tight end in the league. He’s done a nice job, so I’m sure there’ll be times when both of them will be on the field…. When you’ve got some guys like that, it’s a good problem to have when trying to balance all those things.”

Five players on D in which '17 is a make or break year - John Breitenbach
Despite fielding a grade of 81.1 as a rookie in 2015, Chargers LB Denzel Perryman was immediately supplanted by rookie fifth-round pick Jatavis Brown as the Chargers’ primary inside linebacker a season ago. Hamstring and knee injuries further curtailed Perryman’s 2016 season in which he managed only 481 snaps.

Gus Bradley settling in as defensive coordinator for Chargers - Eric Williams
“There was a transition period, but fortunately we have a really good staff, very impressive with a lot of guys with a lot of experience. It wasn’t just the system I brought -- we tried to make it our system. So there are some things that are different that we haven’t done before.”

Philip Rivers of Los Angeles Chargers 'not shutting it down any time soon' -
"I don't want to hang on at the end and just be a guy that's hanging on. But if I still feel like I can help a team and I enjoy it the way I do and more importantly, if the team feels that I can help them. ... I don't see myself shutting it down any time real soon," he said.

Chargers' dynamic duo of Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa can be special - Eric Williams
“It was big,” Ingram said. “I feel like when he came here, he and I clicked instantly. We had chemistry instantly. I feel like it can only get stronger. Last year was really big. We got a head start on everything and this is our second year playing together so we’re really a lot more comfortable together. It’s going to be special.”
