NFL Trade Rumors:
Michael Gehlken of North County Times takes a look at the 25 Chargers players who are set to become free agents in the coming months.
Their offensive line figures to see a complete makeover next season with guards Louis Vasquez and Tyronne Green set to become free agents, as well as OT Jared Gaither. Gehlken notes that it will not be easy for San Diego to get out from under Gaither’s four-year, $24.5 million contract that he signed last year because he still has $6 million his prorated signing bonus remaining.

There’s no question that it’s about time for this team to get a makeover. Multiple years of limited production and obvious holes on both sides of their roster is more than enough to warrant significant change for San Diego. Norv Turn...

Oakland Raiders (4-11) at San Diego Chargers (6-9)
Aside from this being a divisional matchup, this is a completely meaningless game for these two teams. Both are out of the playoffs by a long shot. I have a rule against making significant plays on completely meaningless games. If the teams might not care about a game, I shouldn’t either. There’s just no way to predict what kind...
