Morning Dump: San Diego Chargers News Around the Web

I don’t know what is getting more overplayed by the media right now: Manti Te’o or Leon Sandcastle. There was plenty of Manti talk yesterday. He didn’t clock a good time in the 40-yard-dash, but you try running a 40 with an elephant strapped to your back. The kid has so much pressure on his shoulders.

The Washington Redskins have hired former San Diego Chargers general manager A.J. Smith to their front office as an adviser, two people with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

And only part of the reason is that the best information flows well after dark (and into early morning) in the Circle City dining and drinking establishments. I don’t very often compare myself to someone who has a real job, but I deserve hazard pay for the hours put in pursuing information here.

Former Chargers linebacker Junior Seau was inducted posthumously into the Hall of Champions Hall of Fame on Monday evening.

Last year I broke down some of the pass rushers in the 2012 combine class and I’ll do the same this year, but the results came out for the Tight Ends first so I’ll go through those first. I’m going to use the same “Explosiveness number” as I did for the pass rushers, as well as adding in another factor called the speed score to account for the size/speed relationship.

A big reason why A.J. Smith is no longer the general manager in San Diego is that most of the players he’s acquired in recent years have fallen well short of expectations on the field.

You can’t take a shrimpy slot receiver 11th overall.

No way, no how.

That’s what my head keeps telling me whenever my eyes say, “Wow, Tavon Austin in a Chargers uniform – now that’s exciting.”
