The San Diego Chargers Hired Someone to Fill Jimmy Raye’s Shoes


The San Diego Chargers have hired former New York Jets Assistant Director of Player Personnel JoJo Wooden to become the new Director of Player Personnel in San Diego, per Ian Rapoport.

Is it a good move for the squad? No Clue! It is not often that you hear information on the Assistant Director of Player Personnel.

Here is a little more information from Rapoport to give us his insight on the hire:

We didn’t know much about Tom Telesco when he was brought into town, but we have a little faith in him and trust the decisions that he is making. Now he is bringing in a few more of his own people to help him get the job done.

Go Go JoJo!

    Ernie: Get used to it. NFL Network will now report when the Chargers buy lunch for the guys and yes, when T’eo has a hang nail. When does the rookie mini-camp start? Should be real soon. Wait and see Jeff Darlington from NFL Network is down here, as if it were his second home.

    • davacho

      LMAO! exactly. camp on the 10th?

      • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

        It’s close. I am telling ya, there will be tons of media down here to watch T’eos every move and see if any of the coaches roll their eyes or give him a hard time.

        I think you are right. I was looking for the dates a couple of days ago, as other rookie camps have already started. Ours has to be coming up.

        • davacho

          yah, while i like getting my charger fix on more media outlets than “normal,” i’d prefer less attention as we fly under the radar and surprise people this “rebuilding” season! : )

          • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

            Same here. I don’t like the media attention.

      Breaking news: Teo is wearing a blue shirt, grey back pack, and a new era cap. Jay Glazer just confirmed the hang nail is on his left ring finger.

        hahahahha… that could be an amazing post…. fictitious updates on Manti…

        Manti received a phone call today… he didn’t believe it was really his mom calling. asked her to skype him instead.

        • tubbs45

          Love it, it ain’t gonna go away, we should at least have fun with it!

          • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

        • tubbs45

          The Fluker photo above: Wait TT you drafted who?

        • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

          We should do a Manti Te’O “Fact or Fiction” post!!! Did this happen, or are we making it up? Lol…

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            oh my gosh.. that would be crazy

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            crazy awesome

          • tubbs45

            That would be BoltBeastMode!

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Hilarious!!!!

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Nice, Stef!!!! I have felt that way for years!
      I know it has a lot to do with Te’O… but, probably cuz Norv & AJ are finally gone, too. It took a minute for people to realize they were actually not here anymore, after ignoring SD for years.. lol. People HATED those two over the last couple of years.. across the board, they were unimpressive.

  • RussinSactown

    Does anyone look at this picture and see “Bodyguard”?

    • tubbs45

      Fluker looks like Acee just asked TT on a date. Like WTF did he just say.

      • Pels04

        Haha, He’s mean muggin him for sure……”I see you Acee”

        • tubbs45

          “Stand up and say it again Acee, I triple dog dare you mother fucker!”

  • Alter Ego

    Great addition to front office ! The Chargers are quitely having a fantastic rebuilding offseason of the coaching staff and front office personel.
    Change is good. For the Chargers change is great!
    I believed in my fantasy football guru more than AJ – this elevator looks like it can at least reach the top floors. With AJ – he always seemed to grind out a huge fart in the elevator and everyone had to jump off early.

    Uh the JETS have been sucking haven’t they?? Hope they are on a short leash. If you listen to the JET fans, they are all saying “good riddance” to the both of them. Guess we will see.
