Chargers ready to discuss new contract with Philip Rivers – Eric Williams
“Philip played really good football this year,” Lynn said. “He was very consistent. He was playing at an MVP level, and that’s a credit to him, being 37 years old and coming back in the best shape of his life.

Each team also will have two “Legends Captains” — one offensive and one defensive. Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and linebacker DeMarcus Ware will lead the AFC. Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith (offense) and Brian Urlacher (defense) will lead the NFC.

And it’s not as though the 2004 No. 4 overall pick hasn’t generally been well-supported. Early in his career he had the opportunity to work with superstars LaDainian Tomlinson, Antonio Gates, Shawne Merriman, Antonio Cromartie, Jamal Williams, Kris Dielman and Marcus McNeill. Lately, he’s benefited from the presence of studs like Keenan Allen, Melvin Gordon, Gates, Hunter Henry, Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa.

After a disappointing rookie campaign, Williams showed glimpses of what the Chargers expected when they spent such a high pick on him. He led the team with 10 touchdown receptions and finished with 664 yards on 43 catches, but he had two or fewer catches in eight of 16 games. His role grew late in the year and expect that trend to continue next season.
Biggest offseason question for every NFL team – Michael Renner
The Chargers drafted Forrest Lamp and Dan Feeney in the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the 2017 NFL draft, respectively, to revamp one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL. To date, Lamp has played a grand total of 17 snaps in the NFL while Feeney earned a 45.6 overall grade this past season. The offensive line still ranked in the bottom five in the league last year and it will likely stay there if it’s not addressed and neither youngster improves.

Signed as an undrafted rookie out of Western Oregon in 2015, Williams has been productive as a vertical threat for the Chargers, totaling 155 receptions for 2,530 yards and 17 total touchdowns in four seasons. Williams has an impressive career average of 16.3 yards per catch. The Chargers would like to have back the hard-working Williams, but they also have a replacement on the roster in second-year pro Mike Williams. With speedy receivers such as Sammy Watkins and Paul Richardson receiving lucrative contracts on the free-agent market last year, the price for Williams could get too steep for the Chargers. — Eric D.
