Chargers DST shows promise
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Chargers DST showed big-play potential in Monday's 18-17 loss at Arizona.

Linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu blocked a punt and had a blindside strip-sack of Philip Rivers, with linebacker Dwight Freeney recovering. Safety Marcus Gilchrist jarred the ball loose from running back Andre Ellington, with linebacker Donald Butler recovering. Attaochu and defensive end Corey Liuget each finished with one sack.

The Chargers DST plays the Seahawks in Week 2.

Donald Butler focusing on durability
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers middle linebacker Donald Butler, who just signed a multiyear contract to stay with the team, has missed 24 of a possible 64 games in his four-year career. A groin injury kept him out of four games each of the past two seasons.

“My biggest thing is I need to be on the field for all 16 games,” Butler said, per ESPN.com. “Obviously, the last two years, both years, I missed four games because of the same injury. To me, that’s unacceptable.

“You get paid to play all 16 games, and so my biggest thing is now I fully understand what I have to do this offseason to make sure that, come the regular season, I’m ready to go -- and that’s all 16 games, along with the playoff run we intend to make.”

Re-signing Donald Butler a priority for the Bolts
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Free-agent-to-be linebacker Donald Butler might not be a free agent at all if the Chargers can help it. The team views him as a leader and someone they'd like to bring back, general manager Tom Telesco told U-T San Diego

"He's our starting Mike linebacker, and he played at a pretty good level this year," Telesco said. "I thought he played really well in the playoffs. He's young. I think his game is still continuing to improve. He's a guy we'd love to have back, and hopefully, he feels the same."

Butler had 84 tackles with just a half-sack and one interception in 13 games last year. His sack total was the lowest of his career.

Chargers, Donald Butler talking extension
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Chargers and representatives for linebacker Donald Butler have resumed contract negotiation talks, ESPN has learned. The team might have to use the franchise tag on him if they don't have a deal done before the start of free agency, though that could be tough on them given their limited salary cap space.

Butler had 84 tackles with just a half-sack and one interception in 13 games last year. His sack total was the lowest of his career.
