San Diego Chargers Strategy and Personnel 2009-03-17
TEAM NEEDS


1. Secondary: The team is seeking depth at cornerback and a possible fresh starter at strong safety. Antonio Cromartie has been put on notice at one cornerback spot; last year's opening day starter Clinton Hart at strong safety saw him playing time diminish as the season wore on.

2. Offensive line: With Mike Goff, the right guard being able to leave, and Jeromey Clary, the right tackle, revealing blemishes in his game, the Chargers are keen on rebuilding this side of the line.

3. Wide receiver: Don't be surprised if Smith makes a play for a wide receiver in the draft. There are concerns about Vincent Jackson's off-the-field behavior and Craig Davis, a first-round pick in 2007, has either been hurt or inconsistent. Chris Chambers remains, but his production suffered in the second half.

MEDICAL WATCH: No updates.

FRANCHISE PLAYER: RB Darren Sproles: Tendered at $6.621M.

TRANSITION PLAYER: None.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--RG Mike Goff has been reliable and a hard-nosed player, but the Chargers have said he won't be back.

--OLB Marques Harris was used on passing downs and has shown some promise, but he won't be re-signed.

--C Jeremy Newberry was a valuable backup when Nick Hardwick was injured early last season, but the Chargers won't re-sign him.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--WR Malcom Floyd (tendered at $1.545M with second-round pick as compensation) has a good connection with QB Philip Rivers and can be a solid red-zone target. Injuries slowed him some down the stretch last year.

--CB Cletis Gordon (tendered at $1.545M with second-round pick as compensation) surprised some by getting that tender as some of his shortcomings were exposed when playing extended stretches last year. But he is a solid special teams player and has potential as a returner.

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS: None.

PLAYERS RE-SIGNED

--OT Jeromey Clary: ERFA; terms unknown.

--OG Kynan Forney: Potential UFA; $4.8M/2 yrs, SB unknown.

PLAYERS ACQUIRED

--LB Kevin Burnett: UFA Cowboys; $5.5M/2 yrs, $2M SB.

PLAYERS LOST

--RB Eldra Buckley (released).

--DE Igor Olshansky: UFA Cowboys; $18M/4 yrs, $8M guaranteed.

--LB Anthony Waters (released).
