Offseason In Review: Los Angeles Chargers - Dallas Robinson
The Chargers’ offensive line has been a clear weakness for the past few seasons, and that was never more apparent than in 2016. With ineffectiveness plaguing the club’s guard positions, Los Angeles ranked in the bottom third of the NFL in adjusted sack rate, adjusted line yards, and pressure rate. Left tackle was a problem, as well, as King Dunlap graded as a below-average blindside protector in his second straight injury-shortened campaign. With an eye towards improving Philip Rivers‘ protection, the Chargers struck quickly to sign tackle Russell Okung on the first day of free agency.

“You’d like to be productive,” Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said. “You’d like to be a little bit like we were against Seattle, where we moved the ball early.

“I know I need to get better,” Williams said, per the Chargers website. “I need to get more separation.

Chargers’ Jason Verrett on CB Hayward: ‘We’re looking to dominate’ - Will Hernandez
“I knew from OTAs and training camp what kind of cat that was, and how special (Hayward) could be,” Verrett said, per ESPN’s Eric D. Williams. “He showcased that last year, and now having two Pro Bowlers this year, we’re looking to dominate.”
