Where will Desmond King play? First look at Chargers roster - Eric Williams
King’s four sacks tied him with Rodney Harrison (1997 and 1998) for the second-most sacks by a defensive back in a single season in team history. Harrison tops the list with six in 2000.

Top steals from the 2018 NFL Draft - Austin Gayle
Christmas came seven months early to Los Angeles Chargers general manager Tom Telesco when former Florida State S Derwin James, our second-best defensive player in the 2018 draft class, fell into his lap at pick No. 17 of the first round.

Chargers Thank Antonio Gates for 15 Unforgettable Seasons - Ricky Henne

Philip Rivers Reflects on a Remarkable Run with Antonio Gates - Ricky Henne
“The first thing that pops in your head is he owns so many tight end records,” Rivers said. “But to me, he’ll always be one of my all-time favorite teammates. Our friendship we developed over the years from the time spent and the trust built. From the tough games, the awesome wins and all the experiences we had together. It was a unique opportunity to play with a guy like that.”

Fantasy winners and losers from the draft - Daniel Kelley
Barring some big changes between now and the start of the season, I can go ahead and tell you that the Chargers are going to be forecast as one of the top two teams in the AFC by just about everybody. The team addressed its three biggest weaknesses in its first three picks, most notably with Derwin James slipping to 1.17. The team now has one of the league’s elite defenses, particularly in the secondary, which should keep opposing offenses in serious check. Expect low-scoring games for Los Angeles, which bodes very well for Gordon getting even more carries and thus more yards.
