  Chargers | Jared Cook signs with Bolts    Thu Mar 18, 01:48 PM

Free agent TE Jared Cook on Thursday, March 18, signed with the Los Angeles Chargers, according to a source, receiving a one-year, $6 million contract with $4.5 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Donald Parham's lift off might be delayed a year on this news. Cook is inconsistent, but gives the Chargers a better downfield threat than Hunter Henry. This means they are likely out on Zach Ertz, who is likely to end up in Buffalo or Indianapolis.

  Chargers | Trai Turner released    Fri Mar 12, 02:53 PM

Los Angeles Chargers OG Trai Turner will be released Friday, March 12, with the team unable to work out a trade this week.

Footballguys view: Turner was sent to Los Angeles in exchange for Russell Okung. Both players struggled to stay on the field last year and the trade ended up being a wash. The free agent guard market is awash with established veterans and there should be some bargains with Turner, Kevin Zeitler, and Gabe Jackson all recently added to the players available.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry won't get the tag    Tue Mar 9, 12:58 PM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry won't receive the franchise tag and will hit the open market.

Footballguys view: Henry is going to have plenty of teams interested in his services, and we could see the Bills and Jaguars as two teams to make the biggest run at him. The Chargers move forward with Donald Parham as their top tight end for second-year QB Justin Herbert.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen very productive    Sat Feb 20, 05:16 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen is only one of two receivers in the NFL to post at least 100 receptions in each of the last two seasons.

Footballguys view: Allen is a star and will continue to play at a high level in 2021. The Chargers offense under new OC Joe Lombardi should be exciting for fans and Fantasy GMs. Allen will once again be a big part of what the team does in the passing game.

  Chargers | Austin Ekeler tops in YAC    Sat Feb 20, 01:11 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler leads all players with 1,432 yards after the catch since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: Ekeler is one of the most dangerous weapons in the league. He posted these numbers even though he missed six games in the 2020 season. Expect Ekeler to be a featured part of the Chargers offense under new OC Joe Lombardi.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry open to returning    Fri Feb 19, 04:17 PM

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry said he is open to returning to the Chargers but is not ruling out any scenario.

Footballguys view: Henry said he wants to play with a good quarterback as well as a lucrative contract. The Chargers have one of things down with second-year pro Justin Herbert under center. We'll see if the two sides can find a number that gives Henry the lucrative deal he's looking for.

  Chargers | Mike Williams may not stick around?    Fri Feb 19, 01:52 AM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams had his fifth-year option picked up last spring, meaning he is set to make $15.7 million in 2021. According to ESPN.com's Shelley Smith, that sum is too much money for a player that has never cracked 50 catches and didn't seem to mesh well with Justin Herbert.

Footballguys view: Williams has been good but he's not yet played up to his potential in the pros. AS a top-10 pick, Williams should be a no.1 receiver and he's more of a no.2 receiver opposite of Keenan Allen with the Chargers. They could move on from Williams via release or trade. If that happens, they'll be looking to get guys like Tyron Johnson, Jalen Guyton or K.J. Hill more involved. The Chargers would also then be in the wide receiver market in the draft.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen tears it up versus single coverage    Tue Feb 16, 10:16 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen has registered 87 catches against single coverage since the beginning of the 2019 season - good for the second-best mark in the league over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Allen is one of the most savvy and complete route runners in the league. He can get open against most any type of coverage, and when he's singled up Allen is going to come down with the ball. He's a great weapon for second-year quarterback Justin Herbert to lean on.

  Chargers | Justin Herbert named ROY    Thu Feb 4, 11:45 AM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert won the Pepsi Zero Sugar NFL Rookie of the Year award Thursday, Feb. 4.

Footballguys view: Herbert was fantastic as a rookie. He wasn't expecting to start when he did, but stepped in for an injured Tyrod Taylor and did not look back. Herbert was steady under pressure, and he was blitzed a lot in his first season. That pressure didn't bother him and he leaned on the talent around him. We're excited about his future in the NFL.

  Chargers | Bolts to be more aggressive on offense    Tue Jan 26, 07:43 PM

Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said Tuesday, Jan. 26, the team will be more aggressive in 2021 because he's a 'big fan of going for it on fourth down.' Lombardi cited data as showing NFL coaches generally aren't aggressive enough.

Footballguys view: Being more aggressive is something the Chargers can be great at. They have the quarterback in Justin Herbert, and he's got a great group of skill position players around him. They should work on strengthening the offensive line this offseason, but the Chargers offense is one we'll be investing in for fantasy drafts next season.

  Chargers | Joe Lombardi tabbed to run LAC offense    Mon Jan 25, 04:35 PM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi agreed to terms to become the new offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Lombardi has been a rising star in coaching circles over the last five years with the Saints. He'll be in charge of running an offense with potential superstar quarterback Justin Herbert. His relationship with Herbert will be key, but Lombardi has learned a lot working with Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford (for one year) before that.

  Chargers | Justin Herbert cool under pressure    Thu Jan 21, 09:58 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert was pressured on 230 dropbacks in 2020, the second most of any quarterback, and he recorded a league-best 99.4 passer rating on those plays.

Footballguys view: A strong sign of a good quarterback is what he does under duress. The film and the advance data both show how Herbert is cool under fire. He's not the type of player who feels the rush and it shows in his play. It looks like the Chargers got a franchise quarterback.
