    With Matthews choosing to stay, I am now that much more concerned about Miami trying to leap frog us to take Fisher.

    I'm very interested to see some accurate cap space numbers for 2013, as we can't count on the draft falling our way (thanks to a few meaningless wins) we may have no choice but to roll the dice with free agency again.

    I'm willing to do that with Clady or Albert or Long, limited injury history and very successful. Comparing them to Gaither is like an apple to Venus. They're all very talented successful tackles. If we do such I'd look at BPA or a guard in first round.

    Clady and Albert are likely franchise tags if they can't reach a deal, but just for the satisfaction of stealing them from division opponents I would pay them whatever they want. And I'd still take Fisher in the 1st round to play RT if he fell to us.

    Long seems almost a sure bet to be a UFA, I just don't know if we have the money to pay any of these guys.

    Kevin Acee of the Union-Tribune San Diego believes LT Jared Gaither will not return to the Chargers in 2013.
    Acee's column is an opinion piece, but he's also very plugged in after many years on the Chargers beat. Per Acee, Gaither "will not be back" because "he can't be," and "it has been hinted at strongly" by club brass. "I can't even look him in the eye," one veteran Charger said of Gaither, who is believed to have milked injuries in 2012. Said another, "F---ing Gaither. He ----ing cost us big-time." The Chargers would absorb a $6 million cap hit to cut him.

    Not that it matters much, but Kiper finally had Fisher ahead of Lewan on his big board.

    ***long sigh*** and so it starts, common sense is kicking in, and his stock is rising even before the Senior Bowl. He'll go before we get a shot at him.
