NFL: AFC Wild Card-Los Angeles Chargers at Baltimore Ravens Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The 2018 NFL Clutch Team - Ben Linsey
Humphrey is developing into one of the more promising young cornerbacks in the NFL, and he put it on display in high-pressure situations last season. On those plays, Humphrey was targeted 18 times and allowed just eight receptions for 58 yards while picking off two passes and forcing five incompletions. King recorded his second season with an overall grade of 85.0 or higher, and that bumped up to 91.3 in the fourth quarter of one-score games, and his ten defensive stops in coverage led all cornerbacks.

Azteca Stadium to switch back to natural turf - Associated Press
MEXICO CITY -- Officials at Mexico's famed Azteca Stadium say they will convert the field back to natural turf after a failed attempt at a hybrid playing surface led to the cancellation of a scheduled NFL game there last year.

Fantasy projections for the top offseason addition for all 32 NFL teams - Mike Clay
I'm cheating here, but the Chargers didn't give me any other options and Henry missed the entire 2018 season with a torn ACL. Injuries have been a big problem for the 2016 second-round pick, as he missed three games during his first two seasons before last year's injury.

He's a solid TE1 target with big upside.

Offseason grades for all 32 NFL teams - Mike Sando
The Chargers were the only NFL team to rank among the top five on both offense and defense in ESPN's efficiency metrics last season. They didn't need to do much this offseason, but showing a little more urgency -- or perhaps just an inclination to spend a little more -- would not have met resistance.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell heaps praise on teammate Jerry Tillery - Gavino Borquez
“I think it says a lot about his character. He was committed to winning a National Championship last year at Notre Dame, and the injuries and the ‘noise’ didn’t really matter to him. All he really wanted to do was win. I expect him to do the same thing here when he’s healthy and contribute to winning a Super Bowl,” Rochell said.
