It has been a perennial popular early Super Bowl pick but has fallen short of the playoffs the past two seasons.

SAN DIEGO — Now that the full squad has reported to training camp, a total of 90 players will don Chargers colors.

Former LSU star Jacob Hester took time out from hosting his annual children’s football camp earlier this month to talk about re-signing with the San Diego Chargers and what he expects from his new-look team as training camp arrives. San Diego’s veterans were scheduled to report to Chargers Park Wednesday for the start of camp.
