  • Chargers' Damion Square: Rejoins Chargers

    Square re-signed with the Chargers on Monday.

    Square appeared in 16 games for the Chargers last season, notching 31 tackles (16 solo), three sacks and three defended passes. He projects to play his usual rotational role on the defensive line in 2019.

  • Chargers' Jerry Tillery: Unable to practice

    Tillery (shoulder) did not practice Friday during the team's rookie minicamp, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.comreports.

    Tillery had surgery in March to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, so it makes sense that he'd be unable to practice, particularly given his 3-to-4 month recovery timeline. Expect the 2019 first-round pick to be available come the start of the team's official training camp in August.

  • Chargers' Philip Rivers: Not planning to retire anytime soon

    Rivers (ankle) said he intends to play at least two more seasons, XTRA 1360 San Diego reports.

    Entering the final season of a four-year contract, Rivers is expected to sign an extension at some point this summer. He skipped the Pro Bowl with an ankle injury, but it doesn't seem to be impacting his offseason routine or posing any threat to his remarkable streak of 208 consecutive starts. The 37-year-old quarterback hopes growth from Mike Williams and Hunter Henry can make up for the offseason departure of Tyrell Williams to Oakland. While few signal-callers are in a better position to succeed in real-life terms, Rivers' complete lack of rushing production limits his ceiling as a fantasy asset.

  • Chargers' Nasir Adderley: Clean bill of health

    Adderley (hamstring) said Monday that he's fully healthy and will be ready for rookie minicamp after he pulled his hamstring at his pro day, Eric D. Williams of reports.

    The Delaware product fell further than many expected, getting selected 60th overall, and the hamstring injury could be to blame. As evidenced by this news, Adderley will be a full-go as he prepares for his first season in the NFL. Lauded for his ball skills, Adderley will challenge Rayshawn Jenkins for snaps at free safety next to Derwin James in 2019.

  • Chargers' Cortez Broughton: Headed to LA

    The Chargers selected Broughton in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 242nd overall.

    Broughton (6-foot-2, 293 pounds) wasn't invited to the combine but was a good player for Cincinnati, where he started three years and helped anchor a strong run defense in 2018, when he finished with 5.5 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss. He's probably more of a gap shooter than a run stopper at that weight, but a guy like him can help a nickel pass rush with his 4.98-second 40 and 33.5-inch vertical.

  • Chargers' Emeke Egbule: Heading for LA

    The Chargers selected Egbule in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 200th overall.

    Egbule is considered more of an athlete than refined prospect, but he's nonetheless a respectable dart throw for the Chargers this late in the draft given his potential both as a pass rusher and in coverage. The Houston product should have decent odds of carving out a depth role at outside linebacker behind Jatavis Brown, Thomas Davis and Kyzir White.

  • Chargers' Easton Stick: Joins loaded Chargers depth chart

    The Chargers selected Stick in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 166th overall.

    The Chargers signed Tyrod Taylor in the offseason and still have Cardale Jones on their roster following a 2017 preseason trade, so Stick will have plenty of competition for a potential roster spot. It's a bit bizarre to see Los Angeles invest so heavily in backup quarterbacks that resemble statue-equese Philip Rivers (ankle) in such a polar opposite way, as Stick is just the latest mobile option. That might be his only notable attribute however, as the North Dakota State product took over for Carson Wentz following his selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, proving to be more of a weapon on the ground (677 rushing yards, 5.8 yards per carry in his senior season) as opposed to a passer.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Going out west

    The Chargers selected Tranquill in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 130th overall.

    Tranquill might not have the most intimidating name for a linebacker, but at 6-foot-2, 234 pounds the Notre Dame product has standout athleticism that lends a favorable projection as a special teams and coverage linebacker if nothing else. There's certainly the potential for more than that, though, as Tranquill was a leading contributor on a dominant Notre Dame defense, posting 19.5 tackles for loss over the last two years. Formerly a safety tweener, Tranquill's 4.57-second 40, 37.5-inch vertical, 122-inch broad jump, and 11.08 agility score are all strong marks by linebacker standards. He'll hope to get his foot into the door with strong special teams play behind a crowded Chargers linebacker rotation.

  • Chargers' Nasir Adderley: Headed west

    The Chargers selected Adderley (ankle) in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 60th overall.

    The Delaware product fell further than many expected, but the Chargers certainly don't mind as they now add another talented player next to Derwin James. Adderley is lauded for his ball skills and his film suggests he'll be a ball hawk at the next level. An injury prevented Adderley from testing at the combine and at his pro day, but the Chargers are clearly confident in what they've seen from him otherwise. He will immediately challenge Rayshawn Jenkins for snaps at free safety.

  • Chargers' Justin Jones: Facing competition for starting job

    Jones is expected to remain in consideration for a starting tackle position despite the first-round selection of Jerry Tillery, Gilbert Manzano of the Orange County Register reports.

    The fact general manager Tom Telesco went out of his way to praise Jones, a 2018 third-round pick, should be comforting for the 22-year-old. That being said, Jones likely will be part of a rotation along the defensive line, with Brandon Mebane, Isaac Rochell and Tillery all expected to garner snaps.

  • Chargers' Jerry Tillery: Joins Chargers' loaded front

    The Chargers selected Tillery (torn labrum) in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 28th overall.

    Los Angeles gets more ammo for an already loaded front by adding Tillery out of Notre Dame. At 6-foot-6 and 295 pounds with 34 1/4-inch arms, Tillery is a long-levered athlete who bolstered his stock with a strong combine that was highlighted by a 4.93 40-yard dash and a 4.33-second short shuttle. His frame doesn't project well to play on the interior, but he did his best work outside the guard and outside the tackle at Notre Dame anyway. He figures to be a rotational piece behind Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram to start his career, but don't be surprised if he carves out a significant role for the Chargers before long.
