Malcom Floyd (neck) is participating in voluntary workouts.

Barring a setback, Floyd was always expected to suit up. He's doing so at far less than 100 percent, however. His career remains in limbo, and could remain that way for some time.
Apr 22 - 4:54 PM

Chargers exercised RE Corey Liuget's team option for 2015.

It's worth $6.969 million. The move locks Liuget in for 2015, but is guaranteed for injury only. That means the Bolts could still move on from Liuget prior to the beginning of the 2015 league year, though it's unlikely they will. Under the terms of the CBA, he'll make the average of the third- through 25th-highest paid players at his position. Liuget appeared to be coming on in 2012, but was a less effective pass rusher and run stopper last season.
Apr 17 - 8:38 PM

The Union-Tribune San Diego confirms Malcom Floyd's (neck) career remains in limbo.

Floyd will participate in next week's voluntary workouts, but his level of participation is expected to be "more limited." Floyd is without a timetable to gain full clearance because it's unclear if he'll ever gain full clearance. Going on 33, Floyd's odds of suiting up in 2014 are no better than 50-50.
Apr 15 - 7:27 PM

Malcom Floyd (neck) will attend voluntary workouts next week.

Floyd has been running and lifting weights for a couple months now and hopes to play this season, though that's still to be determined. Getting back on the field in shorts and shells is a good first step toward a return to the field. The Chargers could really use his vertical playmaking presence opposite Keenan Allen.
Apr 15 - 2:10 PM

Chargers OLB Melvin Ingram will be 16 months removed from his torn ACL when Week 1 arrives.

Ingram blew out his knee during OTAs last offseason and eased his way back into the mix for the final quarter of the season. He'll enter this season far closer to 100 percent and ready to capitalize on his substantial athletic upside as he bookends Dwight Freeney. Ingram projects to improve significantly on the 41 tackles, one sack and five pass breakups he posted as a rookie in 2012.

Chargers re-signed G/C Rich Ohrnberger to a one-year contract.

Ohrnberger made one start at right guard last season, playing 210 offensive snaps in total. At 6-foot-2 and 291 pounds, he's well undersized but received positive marks as a run blocker from Pro Football Focus. Ohrnberger will return as the top backup along the interior of San Diego's offensive line.
Apr 9 - 1:55 PM

Former NFL scout Matt Williamson says Keenan Allen "could be close to his ceiling already."

"As much as I like Allen, to ask him to improve dramatically in one season may be asking too much," said Williamson. "He's a really good receiver, but he does not have the athletic ability of an A.J. Green or a Julio Jones." It's a fair point. Allen wins with his route-running and hands, not elite speed or athletic ability. It could lead to defenses sitting all over underneath patterns. And with the Chargers implementing a run-heavy approach, we wouldn't expect a huge leap off last year's eye-opening 76-1175-10 line.

The Union-Tribune San Diego projects 5-10 touches per game for Donald Brown this season.

As long as starter and designated "bell cow" Ryan Mathews stays healthy, Brown's role will be relatively minor. Of course, Mathews has missed 10 games through four NFL seasons, has hobbled through countless others and is entering the final year of his contract. The Chargers also project to execute one of the league's more run-heavy schemes. So Brown, who got a $10.5 million contract with $4 million guaranteed, will be well worth owning as a handcuff in fantasy circles.
Apr 2 - 9:45 AM

Free agent G/C Rich Ohrnberger visited the Jets on Monday.

Ohrnberger appeared in 13 games as a reserve for the Chargers last season, playing 210 snaps. He'd provide depth as a competent run blocker.
Mar 31 - 5:19 PM

Chargers GM Tom Telesco confirmed that Ryan Mathews remains "our bell cow."

Telesco suggested that signing free agent Donald Brown to a $10.4 million contract was a depth move. Mathews will remain the feature back as he comes off a highly effective year that saw him set career-highs in games played (16), carries (285) and yards (1255). "He's our No. 1 back," Telesco said. Perhaps Brown was signed with one eye on 2015, when Mathews will be a free agent.

Chargers re-signed WR Seyi Ajirotutu to a one-year contract.

Ajirotutu has never progressed into an asset at wide receiver, but was one of San Diego's top special teamers last season. His 15 special teams tackles in 2013 led the Chargers. Ajirotutu will turn 27 in June.
Mar 17 - 3:04 PM

Chargers OLB Dwight Freeney agreed to reduce his 2014 salary from $3.5 million to $2.5 million.

The move saves the Chargers just under $1 million against the 2014 salary cap. Freeney only played four games with the Chargers in 2013 after suffering a torn quad late in September. Freeney did not light up the box score before going down, but was generating consistent pressure for the Bolts. With Melvin Ingram healthy again, the arrow on San Diego's defense is pointing skyward.
Mar 15 - 12:29 PM

Chargers re-signed CB Richard Marshall to a one-year contract.

Marshall, 29, appeared in all 16 games for the Bolts last season, starting the final six and the two playoff games. He's a burn victim in coverage but isn't afraid to get his nose dirty in the run game at 5-foot-11, 198 pounds. GM Tom Telesco is trying to piece a cornerback depth chart together. Ideally, Marshall is a No. 3 or 4. The journeyman also has experience at safety.
Mar 14 - 9:12 AM

Chargers signed CB Brandon Ghee, formerly of the Bengals, to a two-year, $1.65 million contract.

Ghee, 27 in June, appeared in ten games last season but played just 80 defensive snaps. He missed the entire 2012 season with a wrist injury. The former third-round pick will compete for a roster spot and play special teams.
Mar 13 - 8:05 PM

Chargers re-signed LB Reggie Walker.

Walker, 27, made six starts out of desperation last season, recording three sacks and 36 tackles. He'll return to contribute primarily on special teams.
