  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Return timetable TBD

    GM Tom Telesco noted earlier this week that he's operating under the assumption Jackson, who is rehabbing a torn patellar tendon that he suffered Week 7 last season, will be available this coming season, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. That said, per John Dillon of USA Today, coach Brandon Staley acknowledged that the Chargers are unsure when the cornerback will be ready for action, noting of Jackson, "(We have) no timeline. He's at the facility, just kind of same as (usual). Improving. It's good to see him on a day-to-day basis." Added context regarding Jackson's injury recovery should arrive once the team embarks on OTAs and then training camp, but when healthy the 27-year-old's ball-hawking ability will be an asset to L.A.'s secondary. In his two seasons with the Patriots prior to signing a lucrative contract with the Chargers last year, Jackson picked off a total of 17 passes.

    Reeder agreed to a contract with the Vikings on Wednesday, Lindsey Young and Craig Peters of the team's official site report. Reeder is coming off of the worst season of his career, logging 11 tackles (six solo) while playing almost exclusively on special teams over his 17 appearances for the Chargers.

  • Chargers' Kemon Hall: Staying with Bolts

    The Chargers re-signed Hall on Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Hall entered the offseason as a restricted free agent, but the Chargers elected him to explore free agency last week when they declined to tender him a contract. The 25-year-old will ultimately stick around in L.A. for the 2023 season, but he'll still have to battle for a spot on the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old cornerback appeared in two games for the Chargers in 2022, logging one tackle.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Expected to sign with KC

    Tranquill is expected to sign a one-year, $5 million deal with the Chiefs on Friday, Jordan Schultz of TheScore.com reports. Per Shultz, Tranquill had a long list of suitors but decided to join the reigning Super Bowl champions on a team-friendly deal. The 2019 fourth-round pick supplanted Kenneth Murray for a starting spot with the Chargers last year and posted career highs in tackles (144) and sacks (five). It'll be hard to match that type of production playing alongside Willie Gay, Nick Bolton and Leo Chenal, but Tranquill should still garner a sizable role in Kansas City's linebacker corps.

He cited the desire to spend more time with his loved ones and preserve his health as the reasons behind the decision. The 25-year-old safety posted 232 tackles and three interceptions in four seasons with the Chargers.

  • Joe Gaziano: Set for unrestricted free agency

    The Chargers did not extend Gaziano (undisclosed) a qualifying offer or tender, making him an unrestricted free agent this offseason, per the NFL's communications site. Gaziano appeared in just five games during the 2022 campaign from Week 11 through Week 15. In that time, the veteran defensive end saw limited playing time while recording just eight tackles (six solo) and one sack. Gaziano now enters free agency with the ability to negotiate and sign with another team during the offseason.

  • Forrest Merrill: Not tendered by Bolts

    The Chargers didn't extend Merrill (undisclosed) a qualifying offer or contract tender as a restricted free agent Wednesday, so he's officially an unrestricted free agent, per the NFL's transaction log. Merrill joined the Chargers as a 2021 unrestricted free agent out of Arkansas State, recording four tackles across four appearances in his rookie season. The 6-foot defensive tackle was then waived by the team with an undisclosed injury during the preseason, and he wound up sidelined for the entirety of the 2022 campaign after reverting to IR in mid-August. Merrill will now look to land a new contract heading into the 2023 campaign.

  • Chargers' Morgan Fox: Sticking with Bolts

    The Chargers re-signed Fox on Wednesday, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Fox recorded career highs in tackles (38) and sacks (6.5) while playing every regular-season game during his first campaign with the Chargers in 2022. The 27-year-old defensive lineman has not missed a game since returning from a torn ACL suffered during OTAs with the Rams in 2018. He's also seen his overall production increase year-over-year while going from the Rams to the Panthers to the Chargers over the past four seasons. Fox will now look to maintain his starting role while on a new two-year on contract with the Bolts, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

  • Chargers' Michael Davis: Suffers pectoral injury

    Davis sustained a pectoral injury during Saturday's wild-card contest in Jacksonville. Davis took some friendly fire from Chargers linebacker Kenneth Murray on a tackle in the third quarter and remained on the turf for a spell before heading to the sideline. If he's unable to return, Ja'Sir Taylor will fill in for Davis at outside cornerback opposite Asante Samuel.

  • Chargers' Asante Samuel: Disappoints in second season

    Samuel finished the 2022-23 season with 57 tackles (48 solo), one tackle for loss, two interceptions, a fumble recovery and 11 passes defended across 17 games. Samuel served as the Chargers' No. 1 corner after J.C. Jackson suffered a season-ending knee injury in late October. The 23-year-old had a disappointing second season, recording the same amount of pass deflections and interceptions as he did during his rookie year despite playing in five more games, while also allowing a team-high six touchdowns. While the potential is there, Samuel has struggled with consistency but will look to try and put it all together going into his third season.

  • Chargers' Kyle Van Noy: Efficient with new team

    Van Noy finished the 2022-23 season with 46 tackles (30 solo), five sacks, an additional three tackles for loss, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries across 17 games. In his first season with the Chargers, Van Noy finished tied for third on the team in sacks and fourth in total tackles for loss. This marked the fourth season in a row that the 31-year-old recorded five or more sacks. However, Van Noy had his lowest number of tackles since 2016 and registered 30 less tackles than fellow linebacker Kenneth Murray despite slightly outpacing him in playing time.

  • Chargers' Morgan Fox: Career year in '22

    Fox finished the 2022-23 season with 38 tackles (24 solo), 6.5 sacks and an additional 1.5 tackles for loss across 17 games. Fox had the best season of his career, setting new highs in both total tackles and sacks. The 28-year-old finished second on the team in sacks and tied for fourth in tackles for loss despite playing only 55 percent of the team's snaps. An unrestricted free agent this offseason, Fox should continue to provide value as a pass rusher either in Los Angeles or elsewhere next season.

  • Chargers' Khalil Mack: Leads team in sacks

    Mack recorded 50 tackles (33 solo), eight sacks, an additional four tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 17 games in the 2022-23 season. In his first season with the Chargers, Mack led the team in both sacks and total tackles for loss. However, the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year failed to record double-digit sacks for the fourth straight season. While Mack may not be as dominant as he was earlier in his career, he is still a force to be reckoned with coming off the edge.

  • Chargers' Kenneth Murray: Reduced role

    Murray finished the 2022-23 season with 76 tackles (50 solo), one sack, six additional tackles for loss, a forced fumble and an interception across 17 games. Murray saw a smaller role this season as he was outplayed by both Drue Tranquill and Kyle Van Noy. Despite the reduced playing time, the one-time first-round pick finished third on the team in tackles and recorded the first interception and forced fumble of his career. However, Murray once struggled mightily in pass coverage, allowing a quarterback rating of 110.5 when targeted according to Pro Football Focus. While the 24-year-old has yet to live up to his expectations, he continues to be a solid defender, especially in the run game.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Season limited by injury

    Bosa registered 10 tackles (eight solo), three tackles for loss -- including 2.5 sacks -- and a forced fumble in five games during the 2022-23 regular season. Bosa spent the majority of the season on injured reserve, as he missed 13 straight games after injuring his groin Week 3, an issue he aggravated Week 18. Bosa was still productive in his limited action, especially as a pass rusher. He finished the season with the sixth-most sacks and tied for the fifth-most quarterback hits on the Chargers. While his injury history might be a cause for concern, it's worth noting the 27-year-old has recorded double-digit sacks in every season he's been fully healthy for.
