A New Offensive Weapon for Rivers?

Acquired in a trade that would give Miami a 2nd round draft pick, the Chargers welcomed WR Chris Chambers to their lineup.  Many analysts are claiming Chambers would give San Diego a quality #1 receiver to help the development of their young WR corps (Vincent Jackson, Craig Davis, Kassim Osgood, and Malcom Floyd); however, skeptics argue that it hasn’t been the receivers or Philip Rivers who were responsible for the Chargers’ slow start, but the offensive line not giving enough protection for Rivers to be successful.

Granted, Chambers, a former pro-bowler, will help spread opponents’ defenses, but only enough to allow the Chargers big playmakers (LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates) to continue to, well, make big plays.

Only time will tell whether San Diego paid too much for Chambers.
