San Diego Chargers Notes, Quotes 2009-04-10
--The Chargers remain committed to exploring the possibility of building a stadium in Chula Vista, a suburb about 15 miles south of San Diego. It's currently the only site in San Diego County the team is considering.


--C Nick Hardwick was cursing his surgically repaired foot at this time last year, when he had to skip team offseason workouts. Now he is participating and couldn't be happier.

"The offseason program is huge," he said. "You obviously develop as a team together so when guys aren't there that are going to be a part of things, it takes its toll. I'm glad I get to be a part of it all this year."

--The San Diego City Attorney has yet to decide whether to charge DT Jamal Williams, who was arrested in February for drunken driving.

--WR Chris Chambers is getting entrenched in the San Diego area with his work with various community programs. Among those is the "Big Brothers, Big Sisters" of San Diego County; he shot a promotional commercial for the group.

"There are so many kids that have been on their waiting list for years," he said. "Hopefully the commercial will help generate interest in the program and get some guys to step up and mentor these kids that some encouragement in their lives."

--John Spanos, the team's director of college scouting, is getting anxious for the upcoming draft; the Chargers have the 12th overall selection.

"It's exciting," he said. "You're already starting to put scenarios in your head for how the draft may play out. Even though you may have been doing that for a while, this is the point where it becomes a little more tangible."

--It's expected preliminary long-term contract talks will begin soon with QB Philip Rivers.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I'm glad to hear those comments. Antonio is a great competitor and a player of great character." -- GM A.J.Smith on his Pro Bowl TE Antonio Gates, expressing his desire to sign a long-term deal with the Chargers.
