Cryptic tweet from former San Diego Chargers LB Andrew Gachkar about L.A. is odd

Former San Diego Chargers LB Andrew Gachkar landed with the Dallas Cowboys a couple of weeks ago. Apparently a Cowboys fan growing up, Gachkar was pumped to be headed to Dallas.

San Diego Chargers sign CB Patrick Robinson

Patrick Robinson has essentially been a bust as a 2010 1st round pick, but it hasn’t been for lack of talent. He’s just missed 22 games in 5 seasons and had serious trouble consistently staying healthy and on the field. His best season came in 2011, when he played 15 games (7 starts) and graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 19th ranked cornerback, but that’s not the norm for...

Next Season Going to be the Last for San Diego Chargers QB Phillip Rivers?

Since then he has made the Pro Bowl five times, been named comeback player of the year, and led the team to the post season five times (and to the conference championship once).He'll...

Philip Rivers might be playing his final year with the Chargers

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has thrown for 36.655 yards and 252 touchdowns over his 11-year career. In a day and age where having a quality quarterback is of paramount importance, it seems asinine that a team would even consider trading such a player when good years are seemingly remaining.

San Diego Chargers sign S Jimmy Wilson

It’s hard to love this move as it likely means Jimmy Wilson will likely be the starter in the secondary for the Chargers in 2015. He’ll play Marcus Gilchrist’s old role as a hybrid safety/cornerback, moving to the slot in sub packages with Jahleel Addae coming in at safety. It fits his skill set as he’s versatile, playing both cornerback and safety in Miami, but I like him...
