Tom Brady Watch: How Chargers do/do not make sense - WEEI

Pros

There’s a lot to like beginning with the team itself. First off, Keenan Allen is one of the best receivers in the entire league and is coming off a 1,200-yard season, and then wideout Mike Williams is an up-and-coming star. Tight end Hunter Henry is a free agent, but if Brady was in the mix it’s likely a return would be in the cards. Then at running back, there’s Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler are both free agents, but it would seem likely one of them will return, especially if Brady is a possibility. Not to mention, they have a solid offensive line. Of all the potential landing spots, Los Angeles may have the best offense of them all.

No. 6: Los Angeles Chargers - Justin Herbert, QB

Saying that Philip Rivers looked cooked at the end of last year shouldn’t be a hot take, and the Los Angeles Chargers should be willing to let the franchise icon walk in free agency as they look for a quick rebuild of their offense. This defense is still young and talented, and the offense can be retooled for early success.

Courtney Hall, center on Chargers Super Bowl team, joins a presidential campaign - San Diego Tribune

Courtney Hall is still sticking his neck out, while knowing the hits are coming.

Twenty-five years since he played center in the Super Bowl — for the lone San Diego team to get that far — the 51-year-old Hall is plunging into the mosh pit that’s U.S. national politics.

The former Chargers center and captain said he’s joined the campaign of Michael R. Bloomberg, a presidential candidate.

Chargers could show interest in Dan Orlovsky for quarterbacks coach position - ChargersWire

The Los Angeles Chargers made a slew of coaching changes, including hiring a new offensive line coach on Monday. The one position that has yet to be fulfilled is the quarterbacks coach.

Earlier on, we listed 13 potential candidates that could fill the void. But one that might be gauging interest from the Bolts is former NFL quarterback and current ESPN football analyst Dan Orlovsky.

Chargers 2019 rookie report card: Easton Stick - BoltsBeat

The selection of Stick was a bit of a surprise, but it seems like the Chargers wanted to take a shot at his potential as he still sat on the board in the fifth round. With Philip Rivers already on the roster, it was not expected that Stick would see the field as a rookie and that is exactly what happened.

He wasn’t even guaranteed a roster spot as the team still had Cardale Jones hoping to stick on as part of the team’s 53-man roster. That set up an interesting little battle in training camp and preseason.
