Darren Sproles Eyeing Eagles, Saints, Chargers? - Ben Levine
Furthermore, Schefter hinted that the running back would prefer to play for one of his former teams. Specifically, that’d mean the Eagles, Saints, or Chargers are atop Sproles’ list.

Wide receiver handcuffs: Teams' No. 3 receivers who could have fantasy value in 2019 - Daniel Kelley
The Chargers had two Williamses a year ago (Mike and Tyrell), and while Tyrell is more of the field-stretcher while Mike is more of the big end-zone guy, their average depths of target (15.6 yards for Mike, 13.3 for Tyrell) were close enough that you could imagine one filling in for the other if anything had happened to either (it didn’t) far better than they could fill in for the team’s No. 1, Keenan Allen (with a 9.5-yard aDOT). But with Tyrell gone now, the Chargers will lean heavily on Allen and Mike Williams (and returning tight end Hunter Henry) in 2019. But the team did extend Benjamin through 2020 this offseason, and should something happen to Mike Williams, the depth chart is shallow enough that Benjamin should find himself productive.

The 100 best single-game grades of the PFF era - Mark Chichester
Hayward wasn’t a stranger to putting up big games in his career year of 2017, but none were better than his Week 11 performances against the Bills. The veteran cornerback was targeted eight times on the day; he allowed one catch for 20 yards, but picked off two passes and broke up another two more. His superb outing in coverage earned a single-game coverage grade of 96.6 — still the best single-game mark by a cornerback in the PFF era.

Chargers’ Travis Benjamin received no response to 40-yard race sign up - Gavino Borquez
Benjamin was clocked 4.36 seconds in the 40-yard dash back in 2012 at the NFL Scouting Combine. Easily one of the snubs from the race, Benjamin would have definitely had a great shot against the others competing in the event.

Meet the Defensive Back Who Brought the JackBoyz to the Chargers - Chris Hayre
All-Pro safety Adrian Phillips noticed that every time McDonald got a pick, he “threw up the J” with his hands. The Chargers' DBs room was curious.
