King Dunlap Makes Eddie Royal Look Like A Midget In Bizarre Photo

We get that NFL players come in all different shapes and sizes, but this is just ridiculous.

Training Camp Preview: Chargers guards will battle for playing time

At this time last offseason, we were speaking of the Chargers offensive line in the same ways we spoke of the Chargers secondary in 2013. The 2012 Chargers’ offensive line was brutal. The 2013 Chargers’ offensive line was much, much improved. This feat becomes even more impressive when you consider the countless injuries suffered across the line during the season. Here’s a...

Which Chargers will be playing for a new contract in 2014?

While making changes to the roster this offseason, the San Diego Chargers have bumped themselves right up against the salary cap. Especially after the addition of Brandon Flowers, there’s not much wiggle room until players are let go during training camp.

With the draft finished, which San Diego Charger is likely to get an extension?

The weeks following the NFL Draft are usually the most dead period of the NFL season. The day-to-day news cycle runs slow with minimal things that actually deserve reporting.

Everything you need to know about the Chargers needs entering the draft

Let me take a moment before I begin this article to thank a coach. I’m not talking about Mike McCoy, Ken Whisenhunt, or Pagano. I’m talking about the one man who saved not only Philip Rivers’ life, but also Ryan Mathews’ body. I’m talking about the one and only, Joe D’Alessandris. For those of you who may not know, Coach Joe was hired last offseason to be the Chargers’...

Chargers go hunting for diamond in the rough with Brandon Ghee

In 2013, Tom Telesco made very few bad decisions. His first three draft picks as a general manager all contributed at a high level on the field, and appear to have the Chargers primed to be competitive for years to come. Free agent additions like Danny Woodhead, King Dunlap, and Chad Rinehart all outperformed the contracts they were given by San Diego. However, there is one smudge...
