Chargers Release First Official Depth Chart


The first official depth chart for the San Diego Chargers has been released and is available on Chargers.com.

Some of the notes that I noticed from the first official depth chart:

So many things will change as the preseason grind goes, but it is good to see where everyone is at the starting gate.

    Sounds like the Chargers have a decision to make at KR. Pre season will make it easier or harder.

    • tubbs45

      Should be interesting to watch!

    • Gunnar Martin

      I had no idea Fozzy could return kicks too until I took a look at this. Watched some highlights and that dude is quick! Would totally be up for him getting a spot on the roster. He’s my new underdog favorite along with Willie.

  • veazy

    Forgot all about Sean Cattouse. Nice to see Addae at 3rd string above Burnett.

    • arnie

      Isn’t though. it’s great to see the “best” players rising to the top.

  • rickochey

    the only mistake is Goodman over Spurlock. Spurlock was released.

  • Stefanie Smith

    I might be reading it incorrectly, but I am reading that Royal is #2 behind Danario Alexander. Vincent Brown is second behind Malcolm Floyd.

    They have two categories on this list WR1 and WR2 with three rankings in each categoy. Man, Eddie Royal must have really cranked it up.

    2 WRS: Malcolm Floyd and Danario Alexander–with the other guys being 2nd and 3rd for either Floyd or Alexander.

    • Gunnar Martin

      Yeah I think you read it incorrectly. It actually has M80 listed as the number one, and DX at number two. Then Brown, then Royal, then Meachem, then Allen.

        If you consistently read the chart across, then I did read it correctly. Look at Rivers on the top–and see how it is read.

        Then go down to Malcolm Floyd and Danario Alexander and read the names in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th slots across from both Floyw and Alexander.

        • Gunnar Martin

          Oh never mind. I don’t even think we were disagreeing with each other in the first place. I’m so confused what’s what right now…

    • JoseSD

      I think it goes starters(Floyd,Alexander) 2 string (Royal,Brown) 3rd string (Allen,Meachem) it makes sense seeing how Royal like last year is the trainingcamp stud and fits the slot receiver role I see V Brown in more of wideout coming in to give DX and Floyd a breather or start in case of injury. This is just an obligatory depth chart mandated by the league im sure it’ll change as the preseason goes on maybe Starks can be the #1 LT or Addae beats cattouse it should be different within 2 weeks

      • Stefanie Smith

        Thanks, Jose. Then I did read it correctly. But thanks for the clarification. And it is still early–still a lot of movement could take place.

        I think the teams are required to put out an official team depth chart today or something, because I was watching NFL Network and they were talking about the depth chart that the Jets put out today also.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Okay. NFL Network just called it a Preseason Game Depth Chart. Philly is putting theirs out on Wednesday. As to if this is actually required or insightful, I have no idea.

  • Mark Viguri

    Still too early with almost 90 players on roster. A couple rookies might get sent to the practice squad but Chargers are getting younger and saving $ Clary, Royal, Whitehurst, McClain maybe even Ronnie Brown are on the bubble.

  • arnie

    Update: quote of the day, “We released a depth chart only because the league makes us”. John Fox…
    take this depth chart with a grain of salt. Some coaches are not committed to it at this time.
