Can DE Darius Philon Take Over For a Struggling Reyes?

In his rookie year, Kendall Reyes made a big impact and looked to be a star in the making. Almost three years later, Reyes is on the verge of losing his starting job.Ironically, 2015 sixth-rounder Darius Philon could play the same role Reyes did in 2012: an under-the-radar player who pushes for playing time and eventually becomes the starter. It might not even take that long for...

Top 10 Free Agent Defensive linemen: Could Raji replace Cam Thomas?

The Chargers ranked 23rd in the league in yards allowed this season, but only 11th in points allowed. That doesn’t tell the whole story, as Football Outsiders’ DVOA, evaluating efficiency on a play-by-play basis had San Diego 32nd in...
