Your daily dose of Chargers news & notes from around the web.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers-Mike Williams Press Conference Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Chargers QB Philip Rivers excited for start of training camp in L.A. - Eric Williams
"I really am excited about embracing this chapter, both from an organizational standpoint and then personally in my career," he said. "It's a new market and new fan base. I do think over time, at least it seems like more and more of the fans that we've had that are in San Diego are kind of getting more and more warmed up and excited.

AFC West Q&A: Who will win the division and how many teams will make the playoffs? -
If Carr beats the Chiefs, the Raiders win the division. If he cannot beat them, Kansas City repeats. Both teams, though, will be in the playoffs again. And while it feels as though the Broncos are rebuilding, they are merely reloading and can make a push for the division with a year of experience for quarterback Trevor Siemian. If the Chargers, who blew six fourth-quarter leads a year ago, can regroup under coach Anthony Lynn, they also can surprise.

Ex-Chargers’ Nick Hardwick: ‘This team has as good a chance as any to win West’ - Will Hernandez
“When healthy, the starters on the Chargers have as much or more talent on both sides of the ball as anyone in the division,” Hardwick said. “This is as talented a team as the Chargers have had in a long time, albeit not loaded with depth.”

Evaluating the Offensive Line with OL Coach Pat Meyer - Ricky Henne
We have a veteran in Matt Slauson who has taken control of the group. He sets the tone, which is nice. And then we bring in Russell Okung, who is another important veteran. He brings a certain edge, experience and work ethic. There has been a lot of competition. It’s been a good offseason because we have a good mixture of veteran leadership with young players who want to learn.

Mike Williams' health status a storyline to watch for Chargers - Eric Williams
Williams, the team’s first-round selection in 2017, sat out organized team activities and minicamp with a disc herniation in his lower back. Head coach Anthony Lynn is hopeful the former Clemson product will be healthy for the start of training camp, but it will likely take some time for Williams to get up to speed mentally and physically. It would not be surprising for Williams to start training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list just to make sure the back injury will not be a lingering issue.
