The North County Times is reporting that the team will sign veteran Kevin O’Connell. The San Diego State product likely won’t be around long.

For many years the San Diego Chargers were the favorites to go to the Super Bowl and for all of those years the Chargers disappointed by not making it happen. The last two seasons the Chargers have hardly been themselves and haven’t been to the playoffs and while they seemed to be transitioning out of the LaDanian Tomlinson era, there were many other stars like Darren Sproles and Vincent Jackson who are also gone. The Chargers still have talent on the roster but the AFC West hasn’t gotten any easier. BetOnline has the San Diego Chargers listed at +1200 odds ($100 to win $1200) to win the AFC Championship and +185 odds ($100 to win $185) to take AFC West Title. The latest Super Bowl Odds for the Chargers are +2200 ($100 to win $2200).

For the better part of the last decade, the Chargers regularly were considered Super Bowl contenders this time of year. But coming off back-to-back seasons of empty Januarys, Bolts buzz has dissipated considerably.

SAN DIEGO — On March 13, media reports surfaced that free agent wide receiver Eddie Royal had agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins.

The Chargers didn’t have to look far for their stable-pony quarterback.

The Chargers own the longest current streak of 15 consecutive years that at least one of their undrafted free agent signings has made the 53-man roster out of training camp. At this point in time, it’s looking as though the most likely man to continue that tradition is the left tackle out of UCLA, Mike Harris. At 6-5, 310 pounds and a 6-9 wingspan, Harris is built like a prototypical NFL left tackle and reports are that he has the necessary quickness as well.
