Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Chargers Make Series of Waiver Claims, Finish Roster

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

NFL: Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Chargers claim OL Schofield, CB Richards, waive WR Davis, CB Mager - Will Hernandez
Meanwhile, Richards has yet to play in a regular season game but did receive some reps during the preseason. The Emporia State product played in three of the Carolina Panthers preseason games, recording six combined tackles.

Chargers re-sign QB Kellen Clemens, place Denzel Perryman on IR - Will Hernandez
However, with former Buffalo Bills backup quarterback Cardale Jones yet to take the next step in his development as a NFL gun slinger, it became clear that Clemens services would be needed for another year. Therefore, coach Anthony Lynn opted to keep Clemens around to serve as the backup to starting quarterback Philip Rivers.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco: 'A never-ending process' to improve roster - Eric Williams
“We made two claims today [Sunday]. There were some other claims that we made that we didn’t get. But we’ll keep after it and see if anybody else can help us moving forward. So it’s a never-ending process of trying to get the right team on the field.”

Chargers WR Mike Williams still a couple weeks away from practicing - Eric Williams
“We have to stay with the same plan we’ve had. But at least now it’s good that you start to see the end a little bit, and I think he’s getting excited about actually putting a helmet on and running some routes, catching some balls from the quarterback. So we’re getting there. He’s not quite ready for practice, but we’re getting closer.”

West Notes: Ward, Donald, Hawks, Schofield - Sam Robinson
A two-position starter for the Broncos during the past two seasons, Michael Schofield attracted widespread interest on the waiver wire. The Chargers won out due to their position in the waiver hierarchy, but the Lions, Redskins, Vikings and Saints also put in claims on the fourth-year guard/tackle, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. A 2014 third-rounder, Schofield started for the Broncos at right tackle during their Super Bowl season and lined up at right guard throughout 2016. While Denver didn’t sport particularly effective O-lines during those seasons, Schofield clearly has believers out there.
