NFL Trade Rumors:
Adam Caplan reports that the Chargers are planning to use a low-round restricted tender on WR Danario Alexander.
If true, this could be a calculated risk on their part as low-round tenders prevent them from receiving compensation if the player signs with another team and they elect to not match the contract.
Alexander, 24, is coming off of a very solid season for the Chargers and would have found a decent interest on the open market if he weren’t a restricted free agent. One speculative idea could be the Browns given that Alexander excelled in Norv Turner’s offense last season and they could still use some more help at wide receiver.
We’ll have to see what the Chargers elect to do in regards to Alexander’s tender in the next few days.

When the clock struck 0:00 on a 7-9 season that had, for all intents and purposes, ended in late November, San Diego ownership was quick to cut the cord on the Norv Turner/A.J. Smith era. And so a new run begins in 2013 – and this team is not devoid of talent.
Philip Rivers has been down the last couple years, but with some help at some key spots (offensive line anyone?), we may...

Yesterday it was reported that the Patriots have shown some interest in the biggest free agent on the market: speedster Mike Wallace. Even though the team is in clear need of a outside receiver given the fact it looks like Brandon Lloyd is unlikely to return, I was a bit surprised to hear the Patriots were thinking about Wallace.
