Derwin James, rookie defenders as good as advertised in preseason debut - Eric Williams

Having already made a kick from 45 yards out earlier in the evening, Caleb Sturgis trotted out to attempt a kick from 41 yards, but sailed it left. This was just the second kick Chargers fans had seen Sturgis attempt, and he missed it. He might as well have missed the first one too, honestly.
NFL Nation predicts fantasy over/unders for all 32 teams - ESPN
Over/under 28 passing TDs for Philip Rivers
Eric D. Williams' prediction: Under. Rivers has thrown more than 28 touchdown passes in a single season only five times during his 15-year career.

Chargers Claim TE Je’Ron Hamm - Ben Levine
The 26-year-old Hamm has bounced around the NFL since going undrafted out of Louisiana-Monroe back in 2014.

He signed with Seattle back in July, and after being waived and re-signed, he was waived a second time yesterday.
