He thinks Gaither will benefit from having a complete offseason and full camp in San Diego. Source: National Football Post

Henderson sat out all of last season after showing up out of shape to the Raiders’ training camp last season. Even prior to this, Henderson had been arrested in Fort Myers Florida early last year for having a concealed weapon without a...
The Chargers decision to re-sign DE Luis Castillo, most likely, has more to do with adding depth to their defensive line than filling one of their starting defensive end positions. Sources have told Pro Football Weekly that Vaughn Martin figures to have the advantage heading into training camp. San Diego was reportedly pleased with his performance following the injury to Castillo...
