Chargers Sign Dexter McCluster

Sep 20, 2016 4:38 PM

The San Diego Chargers have signed Dexter McCluster.

San Diego lost Danny Woodhead to a torn ACL in Week 2.

McCluster makes sense for the Chargers because of his familiarity with the team's offensive scheme from his time with the Tennessee Titans when San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt served as that team's head coach.

James Jones Released By Chargers

Aug 29, 2016 10:11 PM

James Jones has been released by the San Diego Chargers.

Jones never seemed to become comfortable in the Chargers' offense.

Back in March, the Packers informed Jones that they would rather go forward with ascending receivers such as Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis.

Jones will likely be picked up by a team that loses some of their depth at wide receiver later in the season.

Antonio Gates: Chargers Will Welcome Joey Bosa Back 'With Open Arms'

Aug 26, 2016 8:58 AM

The San Diego Chargers and Joey Bosa remain engaged in a contract standoff, but that doesn't mean the rookie's teammates don't want to see him on the field.

Antonio Gates told reporters Thursday that Bosa would be "welcomed with open arms" by Chargers players if and when he signs his rookie deal. Gates made it clear that "Bolts support each other."

The tight end was involved in a contract dispute in 2005 that resulted in him receiving a team-ordered suspension.
