Philip Rivers, Chargers Reportedly Haven't Started Negotiating New Contract - Rob Goldberg
"I'm just fine right where we are, you know," he said Monday, per Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times. "I got this year left and under no immediate stress or urgency to get anything done. If it means playing it out, that will be just fine. It really will. We got a good group here and a good thing going. At this point, just focus on one year at a time and take it from there."

A perfect fit. That’s the general consensus around the league when the Bolts selected Adderley in the second round. The rangy Delaware ballhawk figures to be an ideal fit at free safety in Defensive Coordinator Gus Bradley’s system, and many pundits expected him to be a first round pick. In fact, Telesco acknowledged that if Adderley didn’t tweak his hamstring at his pro day, he likely wouldn’t have been around for the Bolts to nab him in the second round.

Pass defense. The Chargers struggled in coverage and open-field tackling at times last season, particularly in the team's humbling playoff loss to the Patriots. On defense, the Chargers gave up nine passing plays of 15 yards or more against New England. The Bolts addressed that issue by adding athletic, veteran linebacker Thomas Davis in free agency, and using five of their seven draft picks on defensive players, including interior pass-rusher Jerry Tillery in the first round and rangy free safety Nasir Adderley in the second.

Blake Camper could be diamond in the rough - Travis Wakeman
The Chargers could use a swing tackle off the bench, but there is plenty to say that Camper may not be good enough to be that guy. For one, Tom Telesco usually likes versatile offensive linemen on his roster. Camper only made starts at right tackle in college. In addition, after starting the first six games of his senior season, he was benched in favor of a true freshman.
