Jimmy Wilson
News
Free agent cornerback Jimmy Wilson is reportedly set to sign with the Chargers, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. The deal is reportedly for two years and worth $4.85 million, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Wilson, who spent his first four seasons with the Dolphins and was not re-signed by the club, totaled 59 tackles and one interception in 14 games last season.

Orlando Franklin
News
The Chargers announced Tuesday that the team has agreed to a five-year deal with guard Orlando Franklin.

It was reported Monday that Franklin would receive $20 million in guaranteed money as part of the five-year deal, which is set to pay him close to $36.5 million over the life of the deal.

Franklin is set to start inside for the Chargers but could shift outside to right tackle in the event of an injury to D.J. Fluker.

Tourek Williams
News
The Chargers declared safety Jahleel Addae (hamstring), linebacker Tourek Williams, corner Chris Davis, wideout Dontrelle Inman, defensive tackle Ricardo Mathews, running back Branden Oliver and defensive tackle Ryan Carrethers inactive for Monday night's game at Arizona.
Antonio Gates
News
Old Man River, otherwise known as Antonio Gates, has barely missed a beat well beyond the years in which most players have settled into their retirements. But Gates, who will turn 36 in June, is finally looking to lessen his workload next season.

Gates played 787 snaps in 2014, which ranked 17th at his position and proved far more than many younger tight ends. He was also more productive than nearly all of them with 69 catches for 821 yards and 12 touchdowns, the second-highest total of his career. But while promoting a boxing match in Detroit, he told Monday Morning Quarterback that he would like to scale it back in 2015.

"With injuries and whatnot, I played a little bit more than they expected me to play last season," he said. "I was playing the whole game. How I feel next year, it depends on how much volume they have me doing. I'd like to come in on third-and-7s, red zones, those situations. That's what my contribution is at anyway."

His plan would give young, athletic Ladarius Green a chance to emerge as the primary tight end for the Chargers. Green took a step back last year with just 19 receptions for 226 yards and no scores after racking up 376 yards and three touchdowns in 2013.

Chris Hairston
News
Offensive lineman Chris Hairston announced via his Instagram that he has signed with the Chargers, per the San Diego Union-Tribune

Hairston, 25, has started 15 games in the NFL with the Bills. The Chargers are looking for a swing tackle and offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris has familiarity with him from his time with the Bills.

The three-year veteran has played at both the left and right tackle positions and will provide depth for San Diego along the line. 

Steve Johnson
News
Free agent wideout Steve Johnson, who was thought to be headed to the Patriots, instead signed with the Chargers, the Chargers announced. Johnson, 28, spent one season with the 49ers, catching 35 passes for 435 yards and three touchdowns, after a productive six-year stint in Buffalo.

In San Diego, Johnson will compete for targets behind No. 1 receiver Keenan Allen.

Jason Verrett
News
The Chargers announced several roster moves on Saturday.

The team added linebacker Melvin Ingram to the 53-man active roster, as expected. Ingram missed the first seven games of the season because of a hip injury. Rookie cornerback Jason Verrett was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list with a shoulder injury. Verrett will undergo surgery to repair his left labrum, which was torn in three different places, according to U-T San Diego.

Meanwhile, in corresponding moves, the team waived outside linebacker Cordarro Law and promoted safety Adrian Phillips from the practice squad.

Chad Rinehart
News
Left guard Chad Rinehart has been released by the Chargers, according to the UT San Diego. The move saves the team $3.25 million in salary cap space. 

Rinehart, who had familiarity with offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris, came over from the Bills via free agency in 2013. The 29-year-old started all 16 games last year for the Chargers, and 47 games over his career.

Corey Liuget
News
The Chargers have ruled running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) and punter Mike Scifres (shoulder) out for Sunday's regular season finale at Kansas City.

Wide receiver Keenan Allen (ankle, shoulder) was the only player on San Diego's final injury report listed as doubtful. Guard Chris Watt (ankle) was deemed questionable. Meanwhile, defensive tackle Corey Liuget (ankle), quarterback Philip Rivers (chest, ankle) and cornerback Shareece Wright (concussion) were designated as probable.

Ricardo Mathews
News
The Chargers have agreed to terms with center Trevor Robinson and defensive end Ricardo Mathews, per the team.

Robinson was signed off of the Bengals' practice squad in 2014 after the Chargers suffered multiple injuries at the center position. He played in three games while starting one.

Mathews, a former Colt with whom general manager Tom Telesco had ties to, was signed prior to the first game of the 2014 season. The sixth-year veteran played in 12 games last year, totaling 21 total tackles, two forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks.

Mitch Unrein
News
The Chargers announced Wednesday that they have signed defensive lineman Mitch Unrein to a two-year deal. The contract is worth $1.9 million.

Unrein visited the team and now he has signed a contract to provide depth along the defensive line. The 27-year-old has 49 total tackles in his career.

David Johnson
News
The Chargers have rulled the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 14 matchup with the Patriots: nose tackles Ryan Carrethers (elbow) and Damion Square, running back Ronnie Brown, wide receiver Dontrelle Inman, guard Jeff Baca, tight end David Johnson and linebacker Cordarro Law.

Carrethers had already been ruled out for Sunday's game so his absence won't be unexpected. The team does have all three of its questionable players available for action, as linebacker Donald Butler (quad) and offensive linemen D.J. Fluker (concussion) and Chris Watt (calf) are active. Also active are all the team's probable players, including quarterback Philip Rivers (chest), defensive tackle Corey Liuget (knee) and linebacker Andrew Gachkar (knee).

Javontee Herndon
News
The Chargers announced their final round of roster cuts on Saturday, paring their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

The following players were let go by San Diego: WR Vincent Brown, LB Victor Aiyewa, DT Chas Alecxih, WR Torrence Allen, CB Crezdon Butler, S Alden Darby, CB Greg Ducre, TE Mike Flacco, T Michael Harris , WR Javontee Herndon, OLB Thomas Keiser, DL Joe Kruger, OLB Cordarro Law, S Adrian Phillips, WR Tevin Reese, T Jeremiah Sirles, QB Brad Sorensen, OLB Colton Underwood, G Craig Watts, T Kenny Wiggins, C Khalil Wilkes and DL Doug Worthington.
Melvin Ingram
News
The Chargers reportedly exercised their $7.751 million option for outside linebacker Melvin Ingram on April 1st, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Ingram, drafted with the 18th overall selection in the 2012 draft, has registered 78 total tackles, six sacks, seven passes defensed and four forced fumbles in his career.

Malcom Floyd
News
With wide receiver Keenan Allen sidelined by a broken collarbone Week 16 at San Francisco, wide receiver Eddie Royal saw the biggest increase in targets for the Chargers. He led the team with 12, catching 10 passes for 94 yards. But wide receiver Malcom Floyd and tight end Antonio Gates saw an increase as well. Floyd's 10 were a season high. He caught four of them for 50 yards and a score. Gates' nine were tied for his second most this season. he caught two touchdown passes for the first time since Week 8.

For the most part, Gates has gone as quarterback Philip Rivers has gone this season, so maybe his resurgence was more a product of Rivers throwing for 356 yards and four scores than Allen's absence. Likewise, Floyd has been Rivers' downfield threat all season and has had games with similar numbers, even if the targets were less, so if you're going to add a player in Fantasy (not that you could add Gates, of course), it should probably be Royal.

Of course, the four touchdown passes were out of character for Rivers, at least going by recent weeks, so against one of the league's best pass defenses Week 17 at Kansas City, he's unlikely to repeat those numbers. And in that case, Royal's would likely suffer as well. It's not like Allen was consistently delivering for Fantasy owners, so maybe outside of deeper leagues, it's best to pass on Royal altogether.

Dontrelle Inman
News
Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman racked up seven receptions on nine targets for 79 yards in his team's 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers in Week 16.

The coaches opened the second half with Inman in the lineup and the team down 28-7, and the little-used receiver was able to reward the gamble with an excellent half of football, picking up all his receptions in the second half. It was the first time this season Inman had even seen a target in a game, but he was able to pick up three first downs, including one on a crucial fourth-and-10 with less than a minute left in the fourth quarter and his team down seven points. The Chargers tied the game two plays later before winning in overtime.

Inman may have earned himself a significant role in his team's Week 17 matchup with the Chiefs, especially if Keenan Allen is unable to return to action.

Willie Smith
News
Chargers offensive lineman D.J. Fluker suffered a leg injury when his knee was rolled on during Week 17’s game against the Chiefs.

Fluker was able to walk off the field, but headed to the locker room. Willie Smith briefly replaced him, but Fluker was able to return.

Danny Woodhead
News
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."

Kavell Conner
News
The Chargers will have all their probables Week 8 against the Broncos.

He did not score.

Donald Butler
News
The Chargers have a new linebacker coach in Mike Nolan. After speaking with Nolan, linebacker Donald Butler is looking to improve his focus this upcoming season, reports the UT San Diego.

"What I see is a guy who wants to get his game back in order," Nolan said. "Hopefully, he does it. He's said that he has a much better focus this year than he had last as far as his offseason goes. I'm very hopeful that he comes back in tip-top shape. We can start working on the things I hope to be able to teach him, to help him out and make him a better player."

Butler was expected to be a three-down linebacker for the Chargers last year. But as the 2014 season wore on, he was relegated to playing in the base defense. 

Butler is entering his sixth season in the NFL after missing his entire rookie season due to injury. Over his career, the 26-year-old has 330 total tackles, 6.5 sacks, 12 passes defensed, three interceptions and four forced fumbles.

Eric Weddle
News
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.

News
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers expressed enthusiasm Friday for the future of the franchise - and his place in it. He also spoke about ongoing contract negotiations intended to keep him in San Diego.

"A lot of moving parts and lots to think about," he told U-T San Diego. "Location, family, team ... All I can say at this point regarding an extension is I'm willing to listen to anything. I"m also willing to play it out. I'm just fired up to be the Chargers QB in 2015."

The pick of running back Melvin Gordon in the first round ended speculation that Rivers would be used as a bargaining chip in a trade. The quarterback added that he's eager to see him in action up close, but that he knows quite a bit about Gordon already.

"I watched Melvin on many Saturday night highlights," Rivers said. "...It's exciting. We have a great group of backs. We are at our best when 50-50 run/pass. This group gives us a great chance to be that."

Chargers head coach Mike McCoy plans on getting tight end Ladarius Green more involved in the offense, reports UT San Diego.

"There are things we can do more with him," McCoy said. "He worked extremely hard. I don't think it was anything he was physically doing out there. I think it was a matter of philosophically what we were doing with the players we had. We got into the 11 personnel game a lot, three receivers and a tight end. When you have the three receivers we had, and you've got (tight end) Antonio Gates, (you'd have to) take the back out of the game. We need to use him more."

Green was limited to only 19 receptions on 24 targets in 2014. Entering his fourth year in the league, the 24-year-old has totaled 40 receptions for 658 yards and three touchdowns.

General manager Tom Telesco echoed McCoy's sentiments about getting Green into the mix.

It's a good problem to have that we have enough guys," Telesco said. "Philip (Rivers) spreads the ball around. Basically, the open guy gets the ball; he doesn't force it to anybody. But Ladarius has a lot of talent. We'll get him in the mix. We will. He's too good not to."

News
With longtime Chargers center Nick Hardwick retiring this week, the team will look to Chris Watt to replace him, reports ESPN.com. Watt started five games as a rookie and played in 12 overall, including some time at guard.

“You just don’t plug a guy in and figure he’s going to fill [Hardwick’s] shoes right away,” general manager Tom Telesco said. “We’re happy with the guys we have, but no one is going to walk in and be Nick Hardwick on Day 1. And we’re not asking them to do that.”

Offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris said he's looking forward to watching Watt develop.

"I think he has a lot of great qualities as an offensive lineman," D'Alessandris said. "He’s got a good mind. He wants to grow. He’s a sponge. He wants to absorb and learn.”

D.J. Fluker
News
Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said Wednesday that offensive lineman D.J. Fluker will remain at right tackle, ESPN.com reports.

“That’s the plan right now,” Telesco said. "We think he has the ability to probably play a couple different spots, but right now that’s the plan, to leave him out there. He was a little uneven at times I think earlier in the year, not so much physical-wise, but more technique. But he had some games late in the year that he showed exactly what he could do, which is he can pass-protect on the right side.

"We know he’s a great run-blocker. He can move people. He has great effort getting out to the second level. His enthusiasm in the run game, you can see that on tape and you can see that live. But in pass protection he can do it out there, there’s no doubt."

Telesco acknowledged that the team's plans for Fluker could change later in the offseason but that the Chargers aren't looking at playing Fluker anywhere but right tackle. The team's offensive line coach said earlier in February that the team hadn't decided whether to move him inside to guard.

Kellen Clemens
News
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has started 142 straight games, the second-longest active streak behind Eli Manning's 166. With San Diego on a short week before Saturday's game against the 49ers, Rivers missed practice Tuesday and Wednesday with chest and back injuries, though he did participate in a Wednesday morning walkthrough.

"I hate not practicing," he told ESPN.com. "But I think at some point you have to do what's best for me and the team. And practicing [Wednesday] wouldn't have been beneficial to moving toward Saturday."

Added Rivers about his playing status: "At this point in the week, I think there's no doubt."

If Rivers surprisingly sits out, backup Kellen Clemens would start. He went 4-5 as a starter with St. Louis last year.

"One of the reasons we brought Kellen in here is that he was very competitive last year, thrown into a tough situation," offensive coordinator Frank Reich told the website. "He played well against some really tough defenses. He's a very smart competitive guy."

The Chargers are 1-point underdogs at San Francisco.
