Ex-LSU safety Brandon Taylor should make an immediate impact on the San Diego Chargers secondary.
Last year, San Diego’s defense was lead with 7 interceptions by pro bowler Eric Weddle. But it became clear to GM A.J Smith that there needed to be an addition to talent.
What will aid Taylor in his hopeful success in San Diego, will be his experience. He was a three-year starter at LSU and was a defensive captain in his senior year when the Tigers made it to the BCS championship game.
Many scouts say that he doesn’t have the range to perform. However, being that he has been on a championship team and knows what it takes to be a winner, might make him a good move for the Chargers.
Taylor recorded 160 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, 15 pass breakups and four interceptions in his career at LSU.

Also included is the first member of the usually crowded Chargers IR roster, 5th round draft pick OG Jonnie...
Ronnie Brown has agreed to terms with the San Diego Chargers and will act as Ryan Mathews backup in 2012.
The Brown signing is a good one for the Chargers as it gives them a competent every-down back to both spell Mathews and act as a possible injury replacement.
The two backs are very similar in skill set so we do not expect Brown to cut into Mathews projected workload too much...
Can Phillip Rivers lead the Chargers back to the Playoffs in 2012?
The 2011 season was not kind to the San Diego Chargers as the team fell flat on their faces after a tremendous 4-1 start to the season, losing at one point six straight games on their way to an 8-8 season, causing them to miss the postseason for the second consecutive year.
However, with Phillip Rivers at quarterback...
A swimming pool with an electrical current nearby isn't the most suitable environment for a fish, but that's the situation Ronnie Brown finds himself in after signing a one-year contract with the San Diego Chargers on June 8th.
Part of Philip Rivers and the Chargers' struggles in 2011, in spite of the league's No. 6 passing attack, can be explained by their discrepant...
Every NFL Franchise has it’s own pantheon of football gods. That group of players who are not only historic in terms of talent, but even more than that, these are the players who you have to talk about when you tell the story of your team. This is part of a 32 article series where I tell you who I would put among that elite group. For this, it’s Mt. Rushmore. 4 players only....
