There will be no change to the helmet or pants.
“We changed the nameplate on all three of the jerseys,” said Spanos. “We had wanted to go to a two-color font. Most teams in the league use a two color font and it really highlights the name. It looks a little bit sharper and a little bit more modern.”

Ryan Mathews recently acknowledged that he’s been “just an average back” since the San Diego Chargers traded up to select him at No. 12 overall in the 2010 NFL Draft.

No player at this year's NFL Rookie Symposium is a bigger candidate for the locker-room hazing that awaits some incoming draft picks.
So far, Manti Te'o has done his part to prevent that from happening.
Having fun at Te'o's expense would be easy for San Diego Chargers veterans. He went from being a star Notre Dame linebacker to national laughingstock last January...
My 2013 fantasy football top three sleepers are:

The new Chargers regime has made it clear that Mathews is a "bellcow back" capable of playing all three downs. Yet, clearly one of the biggest concerns for the Chargers this season is their offensive line. Is Woodhead the answer?The post Danny Woodhead Fantasy Workhorse? appeared first on Gridiron Experts.
If the Ryan Mathews hate-tweets are any indicator, hell hath no fury like a Chargers fan without a star running back (blame LaDainian Tomlinson for years of spoiling). Looking to seize the baton is Michael Hill, an UDFA out of Missouri Western. To get a better sense of Hill's potential, we spoke with MWSU head coach Jerry Partridge.
Jon Runyan Jr. committed to Michigan today. GBW caught up with Runyan Jr., as he discussed his commitment, his parents reaction, his talks with coaches and more.
