Chargers RB Oliver working to take game to higher level
by Marty Gitlin |

Chargers running back Branden Oliver is not resting on his laurels after a breakout season in which he contributed 853 yards and four touchdowns on the ground and through the air combined.

"My power, strength, speed and agility am focusing on," he told the team website. "I want to get better at everything. I don't really focus on just one particular thing. I like to be well-rounded and won't limit myself to one area."

Oliver was particularly effective early in the season, rushing for 272 yards and two touchdowns during one three-game stretch. He is seeking greater consistency in 2015.

"(This year) I'm more comfortable and know the offense. Now I can just go out there and ball. I'm gelling with the guys and am more open to them because I know them better. It's really just crazy to be going into my second year already. But I feel real good."

Report: Chargers never discussed trading Philip Rivers to Titans
by Sean d'Oliveira |

The reported talks between the Chargers and Titans involving quarterback Philip Rivers never transpired, sources told U-T San Diego.

The Titans own the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NFL draft and Rivers can become a free agent after the 2015 season, but the source said a trade involving Rivers was never discussed 'at all.'

Chargers coach Mike McCoy previously said that the team plans on having Rivers until he retires.

Chargers safety Eric Weddle 'highly disrespected' by contract talks
by Brandon Wise |

Chargers defensive back Eric Weddle let his frustrations out Monday about his current contract negotiations with the team. Weddle, who is skipping the team's voluntary workouts this month, hasn't heard from the Chargers yet this offseason, according to U-T San Diego.

"I feel highly, highly disrespected," Weddle said. "... It is what it is, but there is no reason for me to put out any more effort. We've come to them numerous times and said we want to be part of the team, we want to retire as a Charger. We've completely gotten pushed aside."

Weddle has missed just four games in his eight-year career with San Diego, totaling 229 tackles over the last two seasons.

Report: Six teams in the mix for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
by Brandon Wise |

The Vikings are reportedly going to give it one more week of searching for a trade partner for running back Adrian Peterson, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

A source told the newspaper if Peterson is not traded by next week, the Vikings will keep him. Minnesota is still reportedly talking with the Cardinals, Falcons, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers and Buccaneers to get a possible deal done, according to the source.

Peterson was reinstated last week by the league for his suspension stemming from child-abuse charges. He is under contract with the Vikings for the next three seasons for $43.25 million, including $12.75 in 2015.

Chargers RB Danny Woodhead feeling healthy after broken fibula
by Brandon Wise |

Chargers running back Danny Woodhead is starting to get back to normal this offseason. Woodhead suffered injuries to both his fibula and right ankle, which ended his season in Week 3 in 2014. He believes he's back to healthy and will report to for offseason workouts this week, according to the team's website.

"I feel really, really good," Woodhead said. "I really do. As far as the injury goes, that is something I'm not even thinking about. I'm thinking about trying to get better. I'm focusing on working on what I can do to be better than I was last year. Obviously I wasn't able to play a lot of games, so I should say I want to be better than I was that first season here."

Woodhead totaled over 1,000 all-purpose yards when healthy in 2013 with San Diego and scored eight touchdowns. 

"It's been a long process," Woodhead said. "But definitely it makes you hungrier when the game is taken away. It makes you realize how blessed you are to play it. Not that I didn't understand that before, but when it is taken away for such a long amount of time, it makes you even hungrier. You miss being out there with your brothers. I'm excited for this season. I'm always excited, but my mentality might even be younger and hungrier than ever before."
