Happy Hump Day, Chargers fans.
New Bolts cornerback Chris Harris went on NFL Network recently to discuss his signing with the Chargers and to clarify what his role will specifically be on the defense. By the sound of it, Harris looks to be the new slot cornerback while Desmond King will be forced to carve out a new space for his talents. Some have said he will likely move to safety, but with both safety spots locked-up, I think King is likely headed for the “Adrian Phillips” role, also known as the dime linebacker.
Enjoy the links, everyone. Stay safe and clean. Have a great Wednesday.

The Chargers’ offseason isn’t just about replacing Philip Rivers at quarterback
“There is still plenty of talent in Los Angeles. Star pass rushers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram remain, though both are in the final year of their contracts. Emerging running back Austin Ekeler just signed a new four-year contract. Keenan Allen is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, and safety Derwin James should bounce back after playing just five games last season due to injury.”

Philadelphia’s DeSean Jackson will take on San Francisco’s Deebo Samuel for the right to challenge either Derwin James or Keenan Allen from the Los Angeles Chargers in the bottom half.”
Tyrod Taylor: ‘Too Early to Start Talking About’ Chargers’ Starting QB Job
“After coming up short in the race for free agent Tom Brady earlier in the offseason, the Los Angeles Chargers appear to have moved on from the veteran quarterback market.
