Looking Back: This Weeks Bolt Beat


This is the beginning of the Sunday column I plan on maintaining through the year. This is the day each week that I plan re-visit the previous Bolt Beat  entries that I posted throughout the week in order to keep track of how often I am right, and of course how often I am not. Feel free to point out my mistakes for me.

State of the Chargers Address: It was here that we discussed the disappearance of the Chargers running game, and as far as I know, no moves have been made in the Tomlinson or Sproles department of the offense. L.T. may be released by March 5. Sproles may become a free agent. We just have to wait and see. The suspense is killing me. Which brings me to…

Free Agency Priorities 2010: Vincent Jackson has become the player to watch. The Chargerswill do what they can to keep him. However, if  a new deal is not struck with Jackson soon then he will become a restricted free agent. In which case, it will most likely cost a franchise a first and third round pick to obtain him. This scenario does not look good for Shawne Merriman sticking around. With Jackson being the largest priority, Merriman might just get swept under the rug. This is of course the worst case scenario. Now connecting to…

Cromartie-Scope: In this entry we discussed the trade possibilities for Antonio Cromartie. Bill Williamson of ESPN.com reports that in the ESPN.com rumor mill, they are exploring the idea of trading Cromartie to the Tennessee Titans for backup running back Lendale White. Even so, I will still be very surprised if San Diego acquires a running back through a trade or free agency. It just is not their style. Keep an eye on the draft talks for the Chargers possible running back of the future.
