Chargers Host Eight Free Agents; Ink Center J.D. Walton


The Chargers hosted eight free agents on Tuesday, coming out of it with center J.D. Walton. Here’s the report from the San Diego Tribune.

Eight players were hosted for a workout on a busy day of evaluation and roster moves. Along with Walton, tight ends Cameron Clear, Brian Vogler and Tevin Westbrook, outside linebackers Xzavier Dickson and Mike Reilly, and offensive linemen Joe Looney and tackle Byron Stingily were evaluated. The wide net not only assisted the team when making its roster decisions Tuesday but provided intel toward potential future ones, most likely to the practice squad.

Ultimately on Tuesday, San Diego signed Walton, promoted tackle Tyreek Burwell, and replaced Burwell on the practice squad with former Chargers center-guard Michael Huey.

Walton, by far, was the most experienced attendee Tuesday.

Chargers Pushed Around in 24-19 Loss to the Bengals in Cincinnati

San Diego Chargers v Cincinnati Bengals

The Chargers found a way to comeback last week against the Lions, but Sunday in Cincinnati it was another story, as they were sloppy all day in a 24-19 loss to the Bengals.

San Diego couldn’t fight back, as they trailed 14-6 at the half, and while they had shots in the second half they were unable to close the deal after a Philip Rivers last pick clinched it for the Bengals.

Rivers was 21-for-27 for 241 yards, two touchdowns and a pick in the loss to drop San Diego to 1-1.

The Chargers QB threw a 10-yard touchdown pass early in the second half, the 255th of his career that moved him ahead of Dan Fouts for the club record. Fouts was at Paul Brown Stadium as a television analyst.

”It’s humbling to think about,” said Rivers. ”It’s not as sweet right now because we lost the game. Once I’ve had a chance to take a deep breath and look back, I’ll be thankful.”

Rivers added a 40-yard touchdown to Malcom Floyd with 4:20 left, cutting it to 24-19. His final throw was intercepted by Vinny Rey at midfield with 53 seconds left to send San Diego home on the short end of the stick.

Both teams missed a field goal and fumbled twice.

Keenan Allen fumbled a punt on the Bengals’ opening series. Two plays later, Dalton threw 16 yards to A.J. Green for a touchdown. Dalton also had a 45-yard TD to Marvin Jones.

The Chargers D couldn’t stop Bengals running back Gio Bernard, who ran over them for 123 yards.

San Diego got a decent outing of rookie RB Melvin Gordon. The back carried 16 times for 88 yards. He had runs of 20, 26 and 27 yards.

Next week San Diego will travel to play the Vikings Sunday at Minnesota

NFL Week Two Preview – San Diego Chargers vs Cincinnati Bengals

Wild Card Playoffs - San Diego Chargers v Cincinnati Bengals

Two teams that are looking to have a big impact on the race in the AFC will do battle Sunday when the San Diego Chargers travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.

San Diego looks to go to 2-0 for the first time in three seasons, they had to work hard last week after falling behind by 18 points at home to the Lions to rally for a 33-28 win.

Philip Rivers connected on a pair of touchdowns in the final 20 minutes while finishing 35 of 42 for 404 yards. He also set a team mark by completing his final 20 passes and tied Dan Fouts atop the Chargers’ all-time list with his 254th TD.

“I couldn’t be happier for our football team,” coach Mike McCoy said.

“We have a lot of things to work on and clean up obviously, but that’s going to be every week in this league playing against a very good football team. But I’m just very pleased overall with the group, the way they rallied around each other.”

The Chargers defense needs a quicker start, as they allowed the Lions to build a big lead, but did hold Detroit for the most part in the second half while the Bolts offense rallied.

The Bengals didn’t need much help last week, as they dominated the Raiders, scoring all of their points in the first three quarters, and former first-round pick Tyler Eifert had his best day as a pro while helping his team finish with 396 yards.

The tight end had nine catches for 104 yards and a pair of touchdowns from Andy Dalton. The TE is poised to have a big season with Dalton looking at him as well as star wide out A.J. Green often.

Cincinnati is facing San Diego for the first time since a 27-10 wild-card loss at home in January 2014.

The Bengals won the past three regular-season meetings with San Diego, the most recent in December 2013, and at home they should have the edge here against a west coast team heading East.
