The Undrafted Free Agent Making an Immediate Impression - Ricky Henne
“All you guys know, Austin came in as an undrafted free agent,” Stewart began. “Early on, he was a scout team guy for us. Just ran down and gave us great looks. We kept watching this guy, and Coach (Anthony) Lynn (said), ‘Hey Coach Stewart, this guy is always showing up. Let’s give him an opportunity.’ He made an opportunity and made an impression. Some of these guys are making an impression as well. We’re always looking for talent.”

Don't Forget About Sam Tevi - Ricky Henne
“I’m just here to play my role,” he said. “It’s not frustrating. It’s kind of better for me. I have vets like Joe and Russ, and I am sitting back and just learning from them. I’m here to do whatever the coaches want of me. Tackle. Guard. Heavy tight end. Whatever it is.”

Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram gets to work on making a Super Bowl victory a reality - Dan Woike
“We’re trying to win a Super Bowl. That’s what it’s all about,” he said. “Everything we’re doing, that I’m doing, that every player’s doing, that every coach is doing, we’re trying to win the Super Bowl.”

Five reasons why the Chargers will make the 2018 NFL playoffs - Adam Rank
Bosa is on the verge of being the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. He had 12.5 sacks and four forced fumbles last season, and he became the first guy in NFL history to have 19 sacks in his first 20 games. That's pretty dope. I know this guy is probably tired of getting that "next J.J. Watt" label thrown at him, but he's on the cusp of passing all of that. He's a true disruptive force.

The top 50 NFL players for 2018 - Sam Monson
It was a career year for Ingram, who has seen his overall PFF grade improve steadily in each of the past four seasons, topping out at an outstanding 91.9 mark. Who knows if there is more yet to come, but right now Ingram has become one of the game’s most consistent and formidable pass-rushers and has the added benefit of a partner-in-crime to keep some of the attention away from him.
