Coaching Rumors: Browns, Raiders, Bears - Greg Goldstein
While many hires are being reported, the Chargers are losing their tight ends coach John McNulty to the college ranks. McNulty will join Rutgers as their offensive coordinator for the next season, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times (Twitter link). McNulty previously worked as an assistant coach for the Scarlet Knights from 2004-2008.

Re-grading every NFL team's 2017 offseason - Mike Sando
Seventh overall pick Mike Williams was seen as an injury risk coming out of college, and injuries affected a rookie season that saw him catch 11 passes for 95 yards. History shows that the truly special wide receivers picked among the top 10 choices tend to come off the board in the top five picks or so. Teams often do not get great value picking wideouts later in the top 10, where prospects at the position are more likely to have flaws that arise in the pros. We now need to see whether Williams and Lamp emerge as the Chargers hope they will.

Five good reasons Keenan Allen should be Comeback Player of the Year - Eric Williams
“He’s a great route-runner, and he just has a natural feel for the game, that I think he’s just born with,” Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said. “He’s got a great rapport with our quarterback, too.

Look: Chargers WR Keenan Allen’s Pro Bowl jersey is straight fire - Will Reeve Jr
Allen racked up over 100 receptions for the first time in his career in 2017, amassing 102 catches on 159 targets for 1,393 yards and six touchdowns. Of those 159 targets, 147 were deemed catchable by Pro Football Focus, and his 107.3 quarterback rating, when quarterback Philip Rivers looked his way, was good for No. 7 in the NFL, per PFF.

Chargers do’s and don’ts for 2018 NFL offseason - Will Reeve Jr
It is indeed time for the Chargers to begin stacking the deck behind 15-year veteran quarterback Philip Rivers by drafting a young, talented QB that could potentially take over the reigns in a couple of seasons.

Final NFL QB Rankings by PFF Player Grades, 2017 - PFF Analysis Team
The entire 2004 class of quarterbacks had been trending the wrong way heading into 2017 as they advance in age, but Philip Rivers halted his decline this year and posted his best overall grade since 2014. Rivers and his Los Angeles Chargers ultimately came up one game short of the playoffs, but over the final seven weeks of the season, the only quarterback to post a higher grade was Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
