Chargers Select Their Team Captains

The San Diego Chargers have selected their captains for the season. On offense, the Chargers selected Philip Rivers and Nick Hardwick. On defense, the Chargers selected Donald Butler and Eric Weddle and on special teams Darrell Stuckey was selected.

This is Butler’s first time as a captain on the defensive side of the ball. He takes over the role that Takeo Spikes has had with the team during his tenure. He has learned a ton from Spikes and think that it was the best choice.

All the choices for captains make sense.

    I like Donald Butler and I knew he was at least in the running for it but I had my money on Dwight Freeney.
    Surprised they didn’t make Gates or Floyd captain. Both have GREAT chemistry with Rivers.
