ESPN's Eric Williams considers the Chargers a possible landing spot for free agent Julius Thomas.

Thomas hasn't had any interest since his Miami release. He looked washed in 12 starts last year, but the Chargers need a tight end after losing Hunter Henry to ACL surgery. Free agents Antonio Gates, Sean McGrath, Jeff Cumberland and John Phillips have also been linked to Los Angeles.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco wouldn't rule out re-signing free agent TE Antonio Gates.

Following the season-ending ACL tear suffered by Hunter Henry on Tuesday, the Chargers are left with Virgil Green and a host of UDFAs at tight end. Gates turns 38 next month and has very little left at this point, but he obviously knows the system and has a great rapport with Philip Rivers. If he were to be re-signed, Gates would be an immediate red-zone threat but little else.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler confirms that WR Vincent Jackson is "very happily retired."

Jackson was out of the league last year following an injury-plagued 2016 season and apparently has no interest in resuming his career. Instead the 35-year-old will shift his focus to community and business work in Tampa. A second-round pick of the Chargers in 2005, Jackson topped 1,000 receiving yards in six of his 11 NFL seasons. The three-time Pro Bowler will finish his career with 540 catches, 9,080 receiving yards and 57 touchdowns over 155 NFL games.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports he's heard "a lot of buzz" on Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph and the Chargers.

The Chargers hold the 48th overall pick, in the second round, and will likely have to trade up if they want Rudolph, who is widely considered the top passer left on the board heading into Day 2. The Patriots have been most connected to Rudolph, but the Bolts also need their quarterback of the future with Philip Rivers now 36. Rudolph should come off the board early Friday night.

Chargers waived K Nick Rose.

Rose appeared in two games for Los Angeles late last season, converting just 1-of-3 field goal attempts and 5-of-6 extra points. With Rose gone, Roberto Aguayo and Caleb Sturgis are left to compete for the starting kicker job in training camp.
Apr 13 - 4:14 PM

Chargers waived RB Kenneth Farrow.

Farrow totaled 262 yards from scrimmage as an undrafted rookie in 2016 before spending all of last year on injured reserve. With little depth behind workhorse Melvin Gordon, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Bolts addressed running back in the draft later this month.
Apr 13 - 4:05 PM

Free agent QB Geno Smith is visiting the Chargers on Wednesday.

Kellen Clemens is a free agent, leaving Cardale Jones as the only quarterback on the roster behind Philip Rivers. Smith has never been good in the NFL.
Mar 28 - 12:45 PM

Colts signed OG Matt Slauson, formerly of the Chargers, to a one-year, $3 million contract.

It's been a busy day for the Colts, who also re-signed Pierre Desir while adding former Redskin Ryan Grant on a one-year deal. A torn biceps limited Slauson to just seven games last season. The 32-year-old has experience at both guard and center but will likely end up playing guard in Indy.
Mar 20 - 5:18 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent LB Korey Toomer is visiting the Colts on Monday.

Toomer has spent the last two seasons with the Chargers, amassing 118 tackles in 16 starts. The Colts could really use help at linebacker, especially after Jon Bostic left for the Steelers in free agency.
Mar 19 - 10:52 AM

RB Danny Woodhead announced his retirement after 10 NFL seasons.

The 5'8" Woodhead was drawing free agent interest from Atlanta and New England but ultimately decided his heart wasn't in it anymore. The 33-year-old carved out a nice career for himself after going undrafted out of DII Chadron State, amassing 32 touchdowns over 101 games for the Jets, Patriots, Chargers and Ravens. Well-known for his pass-catching prowess, Woodhead led all running backs in both catches and receiving yards in 2015. Injuries limited Woodhead to just 10 games over his final two seasons.
Mar 17 - 11:01 AM

Free agent Mike Pouncey will visit the Chargers on Saturday.

The Chargers are the first team to meet with Pouncey after his surprise Miami release. Pouncey played all 16 games last year, but wasn't close to pre-injury form, grading outside of PFF's top-25 centers. Despite his downward trend, Pouncey is likely to command close to the $8.9 million he made in 2017.
Mar 16 - 4:53 PM

49ers signed DE Jerry Attaochu, formerly of the Chargers, to a one-year contract.

A promising pass-rush prospect coming out of Georgia Tech in 2014, Attaochu's early NFL career was derailed by injuries. He flashed outside-edge explosiveness when healthy and was the 50th overall pick in the draft. Attaochu is a smart investment by the Niners on this one-year, prove-it deal.
Mar 15 - 5:59 PM

Free agent K Sebastian Janikowski is visiting the Chargers.

The Chargers suffered badly from their league-worst kicking efforts last season, costing them multiple games and eventually a shot at the playoffs. GM Tom Telesco is making it Plan A to add kicker help this offseason.
Mar 14 - 10:50 AM

Ex-Chargers and Jets CB Antonio Cromartie announced his retirement after 11 seasons in the NFL.

Cromartie has been out of the league since being cut by the Colts four games into the 2016 season but had never officially retired. A first-round pick by the Chargers in the 2006 draft, Cromartie earned four Pro Bowl nods including three straight from 2012-14 and a First Team All-Pro selection in 2007. The corner also set the record for the longest play in NFL history by returning a missed field goal 109 yards for a touchdown in 2007, a mark since matched by Cordarrelle Patterson. Cromartie finishes his career with 31 interceptions, five fumble recoveries, and six touchdown returns.
Mar 5 - 11:13 AM

Free agent K Nick Novak has fully recovered from his strained hip.

He suffered the injury in a Thanksgiving win over Dallas. The Chargers will allow Novak to reach the market, though they haven't closed the door on re-signing him. Travis Coons filled in after Novak went on I.R. in early December.
Feb 23 - 2:14 PM

The Chargers will let K Nick Novak become a free agent.

Per CBS' Jason La Canfora, the Bolts are open to re-signing Novak. Novak kicked for seven games in place of the released Younghoe Koo last season before landing on injured reserve with a back injury. Novak turns 37 in August.
Feb 22 - 4:10 PM

Colts hired Chargers WRs coach Nick Sirianni as offensive coordinator.

Sirianni has spent time as both a QBs and WRs coach at the NFL level for the Bolts. The 36-year-old is an out-of-the-box hire, but that's to be expected at this stage of the hiring process. It was either new coach Frank Reich go with a riser like Sirianni or employ a retread of Darrell Bevell's ilk. We like the Sirianni choice after he and Reich worked together in San Diego. Sirianni has seen wideouts like Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams blossom under his tutelage in recent years.
Feb 12 - 9:17 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers are expected to re-sign DC Gus Bradley.

Bradley drew some interest from the Packers and Seahawks when his contract expired on Tuesday, but the Packers have settled on Mike Pettine for their DC job, while the Seahawks don't have a DC opening with Kris Richard still in place. Richard has been connected to the Colts' head-coach gig, but he seems like a long shot. It makes the most sense for Bradley to go back to L.A.
Jan 9 - 9:46 PM

Cardinals signed C Max Tuerk off the Chargers' practice squad.

Tuerk was a third-round pick of the Chargers in 2016, but he did not play any snaps as a rookie and was waived after serving a four-game PED suspension to start this year. C Daniel Munyer (toe) was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move.

Free agent K Younghoe Koo worked out for the Chargers.

Koo was waived from Los Angeles earlier this month. The Chargers could be looking to replace Nick Novak, who missed a costly Week 6 field goal. Andrew Franks and Jason Myers also visited this week.
