Chargers sign 4 more rookies…3 to go

With the signing of Canada’s Vaughn Martin, 3rd-round pick Louis Vasquez, and 4th-round picks Tyronne Green and Gartrell Johnson, the Chargers are still waiting to come to terms with #1 pick LB Larry English, S Kevin Ellison, and WR Demetrius Byrd.

Rookie and “select veteran” training camp begins Monday July 27th with regular training camp beginning July 31st.


Sproles signs tender

Phenom RB Darren Sproles signed the Chargers’ tender today meaning that he will earn a whopping $6.621 million this season (based upon the average salaries of the top 5 RBs in the league) and if another team makes him an offer, they have to relinquish 2 1st-round draft picks next year to the Chargers.

Additionally, the team and coaching staff are pleased with their #1 pick, Larry English, calling him, “the nicest guy you could hope to have on your football team” despite his intense playing methods.  Sounds good to me!!


Draft Day 1

With the 16th pick overall, the Chargers selected DE Larry English from Northern Illinois (presumably to make up for dumping Igor Olshanksy.)  English was, in my opinion, a GREAT pick and has tremendous potential.  Read more here.

The Chargers will hold a live Q&A with English on Sunday, 25 April.  For more information, check out
