Kevin Acee of the Union-Tribune San Diego writes that the Chargers have “reached out” to both G Louis Vasquez and CB Antoine Cason regarding possible extensions, but doesn’t say where things currently stand. Acee believes both players will be able to command $6 million annually on the open market. San Diego currently has $6.5 million in cap space to work with, so it would be hard to do much more than re-signing one of these two players, unless they’re prepared to shed some salary. Acee adds that it’s “difficult to imagine” the Chargers keeping either DT Antonio Garay or LB Takeo Spikes next season.  Garay, 33, has $5 million coming his way next season while Spikes, 36, has $3 million remaining on his contract. Additional saving could come from parting ways with OT Jared Gaither, FB Le’Ron McClain, TE Randy McMichael, WR Eddie Royal, and/or OT Jeromey Clary. Considering that San Diego has both a new general manager in Tom Telesco as well as new head coach Mike McCoy, there’s a chance that they could look for a complete rebuild this offseason. That’s based purely on speculation, but gutting teams from time-to-time can leave them on better footing for the years to come, which is something we saw happen with the Colts this season.   The post Chargers Notes: Louis Vasquez, Antoine Cason, Jared Gaither, Takeo Spikes, Eddie Royal appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
