Chargers Ink 4 Draft Picks Including Manti Te'o

The San Diego Chargers inked four of their draft picks today: Manti Te’o, Keenan Allen, Tourek Williams and Brad Sorensen. The guys will begin work tomorrow when rookie mini camps begin for the San Diego Chargers.

That leaves DJ Fluker and Steve Williams as the only two rookies that are unsigned. They still will be on the field this weekend to get their work in.

It is nice to get some of these things out of the way early. Details on all the contracts have not been released yet, but they are likely 4-year deals. I am excited to see the guys on the field this weekend rocking the blue and gold.

Hopefully these guys are on the roster for a long time and can make some huge things happen for the Bolts this year. Hopefully the next signing will be Max Starks and the other 2 rookies.

I wish it was football season already. I can see almost all of these rookies contributing to the season. Everyone except for Sorensen. If we see Sorensen during the year, then something went really bad.

        “STOP MAKING FUN OF MANTI TE’O!!!! You’re so lame! That joke stopped being funny one month, two weeks, four days, six hours, twelve minutes, and thirty-eight seconds ago! Leave him alone! Gawsh, you guys!!!! You don’t know how hurtful it is… I have seen him crying through the window, when I was camped out on his lawn during the Catfish Scandal!!!”

    Good to see our new GM is getting things done!

  • Heidijoy

    Great to see!! Wishing them the best of everything!!! Go Chargers!! Rooting for you Te’o et al

  • JoseSD

    Its pretty cool how the rookies get in quickly now especially with the rookie wage scale, the first rounders do still take a while waiting for the players around them sign to see where they’re pay is slotted but its nowhere near as bad remember how Michael Crabtree didn’t sign until after the regular season already started, there was talk of him re-entering the draft the next season. Glad those days are over

    • Ernie Padaon

      so dang true… it used to take forever for our first round picks to sign too….. always seemed like a holdout
