Chargers 2019 schedule includes four games in prime time

After a surprising six-game winning streak, the Chargers added two prime-time games to their 2018 schedule. All three were played in December, including the come-from-behind Sunday night win in Pittsburgh and the walk-off 2-point conversion on a Thursday night in Kansas City. With the Chargers delivering two of the most memorable games in 2018, the NFL apparently wanted more of them under the lights.

The Chargers aren’t considering a name change as a way to lure more fans in Los Angeles, but they did announce a different change Tuesday, one many fans have been clamoring for.

Report: WR Travis Benjamin, Chargers agree to 1-year extension

Travis Benjamin’s roster spot is reportedly safe for 2019. The speedy wideout and the Chargers agreed to a one-year extension that runs through the 2020 season, ESPN’s Field Yates reported Tuesday. The new deal will benefit both sides, according to Yates. Benjamin will get a $3 million signing bonus, but his base salary for 2019 drops from $5.25 million to $1 million, which will create $2.75 million in cap space for the Chargers. By making this accommodation, Benjamin’s 2019 roster spot is secur...

Denzel Perryman present, Philip Rivers absent for Chargers’ offseason workout

COSTA MESA — Denzel Perryman didn’t want the brace around his left knee to diminish his achievement. He was there Monday running with his teammates for the start of the Chargers’ offseason program.

The recently re-signed linebacker pointed to his brace and made it known to the reporters watching he was present. Perryman wasn’t supposed to be there. He’s only five months removed since undergoing knee su...

Chargers free-agency review: Tracking arrivals and departures

A month removed since the start of NFL free agency, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn doesn’t believe his team improved from the one that won 12 games and advanced to the divisional round of the playoffs. “I don’t think you can say right now this team is better than at the end of the last season,” Lynn said last month at the annual NFL meetings. “The 2018 season is entirely different than the upcoming year.” As Lynn pointed out, every season is different. Players improve, players decline. Injuries and...

Chargers GM Tom Telesco signs extension, aims for balance during free agency

Thomas Davis and Tyrod Taylor had to rethink plans before joining Chargers

COSTA MESA — Thomas Davis was next to his wife, Kelly, when the Chargers’ contract offer came in. The three-time Pro Bowler promptly told her he was going to accept. “Wait, wait, wait,” Davis recalled his wife saying. This was not what Davis wanted before free agency opened, but there he was Friday, more than 2,000 miles away from home, with a new NFL team logo behind him as a backdrop. A few feet away from Davis at the podium sat Tyrod Taylor, sporting a mustard-colored suit. He, too, changed i...

Kartje: Josh Rosen can still be a franchise quarterback in the NFL

Barring some elaborate Pro Day measurement conspiracy involving padded cleats and a juiced measuring tape or the invasion of an invisible army of anonymous scouts, hell-bent on inflaming further fabricated controversies, it appears that 5-foot-10 Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray will be the top pick in this year’s NFL draft. This is great for Murray, who chose a future in football over baseball this offseason, and for the Cardinals, who can sell hope for the future with Murray under center. It’...

Whicker: James Develin is a Patriot who batters like a ram

ATLANTA — He got his mechanical engineering degree from Brown. “I wanted something to put in my back pocket,” James Develin explained. He rarely lands on it. Develin lined up interviews with several firms. He never followed up. He would only try football, even though he was a 6-foot-3, 255-pound Ivy League defensive lineman, and thus fairly unemployable. His front pocket would not overflow with money, not when it took him to the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz for five games in the Arena Football Leagu...

Quarterback Philip Rivers will not play in the Pro Bowl because of an ankle injury, a Chargers official told the Southern California News Group on Tuesday. Rivers was replaced on the AFC roster by Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

While in the NFC, we have the New Orleans Saints hosting the Los Angeles Rams. My picks from last week had me guessing three out of the four teams correctly. My only blemish was thinking the Chargers would go to Foxboro and upset the Patriots. As we saw, New England dominated the game from the beginning. Tom Brady was as efficient as ever throwing f...
