Brandon Mebane Says He and Teammates Experienced Racial Discrimination in LA - Tyler Conway
“They chose somebody else because their credit score was four points higher,” Mebane said. “When your credit score is in the 800s, it’s pretty much a wash. But you can’t tell a person they can’t come in your neighborhood because they’re black; that’s against the law. They don’t actually say those types of things. But they’ll point out things like those four points. The neighborhood was brand new. There were no black families there.”

Every NFL Team's Secret Weapon for 2017 - Sean Tomlinson
arner signed a low cost one-year deal with only $75,000 guaranteed. He heads to Los Angeles after being buried on depth charts earlier in his career. First it was with the Carolina Panthers, and then more recently the Philadelphia Eagles, where Barner received only 32 touches in 2016.

Ranking all 32 NFL teams based on their passing game - Cam Mellor
The Chargers saw a duo of wide receivers finish with grades in the top 33 as Tyrell Williams ranked 31st and Dontrelle Inman 33rd. QB Philip Rivers threw the sixth most touchdowns on deep passes (10) as the Chargers were one of only two teams to have three or more wide receivers haul in deep-pass touchdowns (Williams [4], Travis Benjamin [3] and Inman [2]). Factor in a new formidable target in rookie WR Mike Williams with the return of Keenan Allen, and Rivers has to be a happy man entering his 14th season.

2 mistakes that could loom large for Chargers’ future - Ryan Lipton
First and foremost, the Chargers should not have signed Chargers tackle Russell Okung. Yes, they needed help at the position, but they gave him a massive four-year $53 million contract that is back loaded.
