The San Diego Chargers have taken quarterback Brad Sorensen of Southern Utah in the seventh round of the NFL draft.
The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Sorensen gives the Chargers three quarterbacks on the roster, behind Philip Rivers and Charlie Whitehurst.
Sorensen threw for 3,139 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2012 to give him three straight seasons with more than 3,000 yards. He set the single-season school record with 3,163 yards in 2010. He finished his career with a school-record 9,445 yards passing and 61 touchdowns.

The wait is over — after falling completely out of the first round of the NFL Draft, this year’s Heisman runner-up Manti Te’o has been drafted by the San Diego Chargers with the 38th overall pick.
Te’o had an unbelievable college career at Notre Dame, but has been in the news all offseason for his infamous “catfishing” hoax.
Te’o drafted. Internet to blow up in 3,...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Denver Broncos are signing OLB Shaun Phillips.
Phillips, 31, receives a one-year contract for Denver and figures to compete for the team’s starting defensive ends spot across from Von Miller. Phillips has spent his entire nine-year career in San Diego, but apparently was no longer a part of the team’s future plans. It’s worth noting...
Despite enjoying retirement in Del Boca Vista for the past couple of seasons, future Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson told Yahoo! Sports’ Mike Silver that the San Diego Chargers wanted him to return and compete for them this autumn. The 5-foot-10, 215 pound Tomlinson, who San Diego took out of TCU with the fifth overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft, last played for the...
The Chargers select Steve Williams in the 5th round

San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o has had a whirlwind past few months. After an absolutely horrid game against Alabama in the BCS Championship, we all know of the fake dead girlfriend hoax story that made huge news to anyone who had followed Te’o's story. But as you should know time heals all wounds. And [...]
Manti Te'o was the victim of another hoax.
Well, he wasn't the only one. Anyone who bleeds blue and gold for Notre Dame, and the large contingent of the media, was fooled yet again by the hype of a player coming out of South Bend, Indiana. Frankly, anyone who has been enchanted by the notion that miracles bloom practically every season under the watch of Touchdown...
Keenan Allen is picked up by the San Diego Chargers in the third round of the NFL Draft, joining Manti Te'o.
LaDainian Tomlinson is the San Diego Chargers all-time leader in rushing yardage and touchdowns, so it is safe to say that he is considered an all-time great as far as their franchise goes. But, that great has retired. Enjoying a nice career as an analyst with the NFL Network, Tomlinson has been enjoying life after [...]
