Your daily dose of Los Angeles Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Daring moves for all 32 NFL teams this offseason - Football Outsiders (insider)
A wise decision would be to use a second-day pick on a Jarrett Stidham, Ryan Finley or Will Grier type -- someone who might not be ready on day one but has traits you could mold. The bold move, though, would be to follow Kansas City's model and take your next quarterback right there on opening night. Drew Lock is a prospect the Chargers could realistically get, probably with a slight move up in the draft order. He's a gunslinger-type who could benefit from a more consistent coaching staff than he had at Missouri. If Lock pulls a Mahomes and turns into the quarterback of the future, the Chargers could then deal Rivers to an NFC team in 2020 and get more draft capital in return.

Chargers' search for Philip Rivers' successor starts at NFL combine - Eric D. Williams
"He just needs to be a little more consistent. He missed too many layups when you watch him on tape. But he has arm strength, athleticism, and by all accounts, he's a great kid. … Having Philip in place for a couple more years, I think you could take a shot on somebody like that, who would be a developmental guy you could get more in that third-round range."

Daniel Jeremiah Offers Potential QB Draft Targets for Bolts - Ricky Henne
Now, let’s make things clear – Philip Rivers isn’t going anywhere. He tied his personal best with a 105.5 passer rating on the year, completing 347 of 508 passes (68.3 percent) for 4,308 yards and 32 touchdowns. He became just the fourth quarterback in NFL history with 10 seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards as he led the Chargers to a 12-4 record and his eighth Pro Bowl honor.

Tom Telesco Opens Up About Draft Board, Free Agency Plans, Players Who’ll Step Up in 2019 and More - Ricky Henne
Telesco: Yeah, I think there is a good chance you see a lot more of him in 2019. We used him in a lot of ways last season. Earlier in the year we had special packages for him, and late in the year he played more at safety. He really excelled in both. He did a great job on special teams. He really took ownership of that position. Rayshawn had a lot of different roles for us, and there’s a good chance those get bigger next year.
