Top-10 Free Agent Linebackers in 2019 - Ben Cooper
Lucky for Perryman, his career with the Los Angeles Chargers has been bookended by two stellar years — one being a promising rookie campaign and the other a strong 2018 season. Perryman has only once surpassed 400 snaps in a season, but he has upside for a team in need of depth at the linebacker position. He allowed the 12th-best catch rate (70.8%) in coverage this year among linebackers and racked up 22 stops on just 386 snaps.

Senior analyst Mike Renner shows us some game footage of Jerry Tillery to help break down what makes him so special as an interior pass rusher.

Highlighting the NFL's most versatile players in 2018 - Michael Renner

Predicting 2019 Vegas win totals, over/unders for all 32 NFL teams - Bill Barnwell
For years, the Chargers underperformed their point differential and posted a dismal record in close games. The 2017 Chargers posted a 10.4-win Pythagorean expectation and went 9-7, which is why they were likely to get better the following season. The 2018 Chargers posted an identical 10.4-win expectation, but Philip Rivers & Co. improved to 12-4. Chances are they'll decline some in 2019, but they'll also presumably get something closer to a full season from star pass-rusher Joey Bosa.

Two wide receiver prospects that can replace Tyrell Williams - Andrew De Fazio
At 6-foot-6 and 225 pounds, Butler possesses elite size, can jump over defensive backs, has great ability to run after the catch (22 yards per catch in 2018), and is a red zone threat.
