Chargers' Korey Toomer: Signs restricted free-agent tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toomer signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Chargers, Rickey Henne of the team's official site reports.

Toomer will join a crowded Chargers linebacking core, with Denzel Perryman and Jatavis Brown presumably pegged for starting roles. Should either player go down with an injury, Toomer could be a sneaky IDP candidate as the 28-year-old recorded 75 tackles in 13 games with the Chargers last season

Chargers' Dontrelle Inman: Signs free-agent tender from Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Inman signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Chargers on Tuesday, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports.

Inman has waited in limbo since the Chargers placed a second-round tender on him just before free agency kicked off on March 9. Now that he's back in the picture, though, he'll have a chance to build upon a breakout 2016 season in which he gathered in 58 catches (on 97 targets) for 810 yards and four touchdowns. Potentially hindering his cause are the concurrent recoveries of Keenan Allen (knee) and Travis Benjamin (knee), who serve as two of Philip Rivers' top options in the passing attack, when healthy. Because Allen has played in just nine of a possible 32 games the past two campaigns, the injury bug could again bite and thereby elevate Inman's standing within the offense.

Chargers' Jason Verrett: Likely having fifth-year option excerised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers intend to pick up Verrett's (knee) fifth-year contract option, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Speaking to the media prior to the NFL Draft, Chargers general manager Tom Telesco relayed the team intends to pick up Verrett's fifth-year option. Despite tearing his ACL earlier in the season, this move figures to be a no-brainer, as Verrett has developed into one of the league's better corners when healthy.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Recovering well from knee, hip injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon, who participated in the team's first on-field workout of the offseason, is still recovering from knee and hip injuries that sidelined him for the final three games of the 2016 season, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

Head coach Anthony Lynn seems to be happy with Gordon's recovery progression stemming from a Week 14 dual hip and knee strains, although he admits the team is taking it slowly with their former first-round pick. "Right now he's kind of doing more things straight ahead, and as we continue on he'll do more lateral movements. But right now he's doing good." One of last year's breakout running backs, Gordon figures to be a major part of the Chargers offense once he returns to full health, especially with former receiving threat Danny Woodhead now in Baltimore. While there's a chance Gordon could see his carries reduced given Lynn's hope to involve multiple running backs in the game plan, the Wisconsin alum should nevertheless be an attractive fantasy option come the start of the new year.

Chargers' Brandon Mebane: Fully recovered from biceps injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mebane has fully recovered from the biceps tear he suffered last season, the Orange County Register reports.

Mebane was a welcomed addition to the defensive line during his first season with the Chargers in 2016, producing 21 tackles, a sack and an interception across 10 games. While he unfortunately suffered a torn biceps in Week 10 that forced him to finish the season on injured reserve, his return to full health should allow him to participate in the majority of the team's offseason program.
