NFL: Preseason-Arizona Cardinals at San Diego Chargers Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Chargers Continue the Grind - Chargers.com (video)
The Chargers hit the practice field as OTAs continue.

Less conventional stack options for best-ball players - Brandon Marianne Lee
If Rivers can maintain early-season momentum in 2017, then his Round 9 ADP will look like a steal. And even if he does slump, there will still be touchdowns, and they will likely go to Henry. Henry tied with Cameron Brate last season with eight touchdowns, a league-high among tight ends. And Henry did that as a rookie, with perennial fantasy superstar Antonio Gates still on the field and working toward the all-time tight end touchdown record.

The longest-tenured player on each AFC roster - Josh Liskiewitz
Gates arrived in San Diego a year before QB Philip Rivers, and the two evolved into one of the most potent QB-to-TE connections of all time. The signature year of Gates’ Hall of Fame career was 2009, when he caught 87 balls for 1250 yards and eight scores while forcing a career-high 13 missed tackles after the catch. He caught all seven downfield throws to him that year, leading all tight ends in deep ball catch rate, and also led all tight ends in yards per route run.

Options plenty for Chargers to replace Danny Woodhead's production - Eric Williams
For now, Oliver and free-agent signee Kenjon Barner will get the first chance to replace Woodhead's production as a complementary back to workhorse Melvin Gordon. New running backs coach Alfredo Roberts does a nice job of breaking down his position group here.

Nick Hardwick can't quit Chargers, rejoins radio broadcast team - Eric Williams
“I had the opportunity to be on air when all that was happening. And I think a lot of people in San Diego joined me with very similar sentiments. But since then the emotions have subsided and I’ve tried to make sense of the entire situation.”
