It's been known for some time now that the NFL has every intention of putting a team in Los Angeles. The league has also noted that it is not thinking of expansion at this point. Put those two notions together, and we know that one of the current franchises in the NFL will be in Los Angeles sooner or later, and all indications are that the time frame falls in the "sooner" category.
The Chargers are the clear frontrunner in any relocation talks with the Rams trailing in 2nd place. The Rams could potentially leave St. Louis following the 2014 season, making them available for a move back to L.A. The Chargers, on the other hand, have an annual lease termination option from February 1st through April 30th. This option would allow them to buyout the lease and relocate the team.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are often cited as a team that is likely to relocate, but relocation would be very tricky for the team. If the Jaguars move before 2017, owner Shahid Khan would have to pay...

A mysterious billboard tribute to the late Junior Seau has been erected in Oceanside, Calif., his hometown. The identities of the individuals who are behind it are unknown.
Earlier this week former San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was a guest on NBC Sports Talk, and stated that he’d prefer going into the Hall of Fame over winning a Super Bowl.
A source has told Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com that the reason the Chargers never won a Super Bowl while Tomlinson was around, is because of his selfish attitude.
The illustrious career of Antonio Gates is fast coming to an end. Everyone knows it, especially the administration and coaching staff of the San Diego Changers. Because of that, during April’s NFL Draft, the Chargers selected the guy who they hope is the heir apparent to Gates at the tight end position: Ladarius Green of [...]

According to the North County Times, a billboard of Junior Seau popped up on Interstate 5 in Oceanside, CA this past week.
The billboard faces south on the west side of the freeway. You can see what it looks like above.
Seau’s family was very surprised by the billboard since they didn’t know it was going up.
With the NFL planning to relocate a team to Los Angeles by 2013, there is really only one team that could pull off the move on such short notice. That’s the San Diego Chargers who can cancel their Qualcomm Stadium lease between February 1 and April 30 of next year.
Another team that’s been mentioned as a possible team may move is the St. Louis Rams, but they...
The Chargers have two rookies from South Carolina: first-round pick OLB Melvin Ingram and undrafted WR Jason Barnes. Ingram arrives with high expectations, while Barnes is looking to beat the odds and make a name for himself. For in-depth information on each of the prospects, we talk with Wes Mitchell, publisher of GamecockAnthem.com.
The "my name is" tags weren't quite needed at the last week's Chargers' minicamp. Still, it was an important exercise for a team that has so many new faces, especially those serving as targets for quarterback Philip Rivers.
The 2012 season is about two months away, and it's a perfect time to rank NFL players by position. A combination of factors such as stats, overall performance, etc., determine where players are ranked. Analysis will be added very soon, I just wanted to get these rankings done first.
*Player ages are how old they will be on September 5th, NFL Kickoff date.

The fire of speculation on the future of the San Diego Chargers was stoked again last week, when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to all 32 NFL teams detailing the conditions of moving a team to Los Angeles. With their stadium issues and close geographical ties, the Chargers have been speculated as a logical option for the move. Goodell has set the relocation application...

Army lost a heartbreaker to SDSU last year in West Point, losing by three points against them.
This all started when LT said he rather be in the Hall of Fame than win a Super Bowl.
That caused a lot of people to raise an eyebrow and wonder if LT was more about team or himself. Profootballtalk.com has a source who believes it was the latter.
“That’s why the Chargers could never win the big one,” the source said. “L.T. was selfish and a selfish...
Len Pasquarelli the Sports Xchange reports that there are a number of NFL teams that have been doing increasingly more due diligence regarding free agent OT Marcus McNeill and his health.
