    A Chargers shuttle was sent to the airport and back, to the airport and back, all Thursday morning and into the afternoon.

    The rookies were in town.

    Before unpacking, four of the six draft choices signed.

    Inside linebacker Manti Te'o, a second-round pick, and wide receiver Keenan Allen, a third-round choice, were among the rookies to finalize a four-year contract. Outside linebacker Tourek Williams, a sixth rounder, and seventh-round quarterback Brad Sorensen also signed.

    Six draft picks, 20 undrafted rookies and seven players who will try out for the roster all landed in San Diego for a three-day rookie minicamp that begins Friday.

    Offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, San Diego's first-round pick, and cornerback Steve Williams, its fifth, can participate in the minicamp despite having yet to sign.

    Chargers sign Manti Te’o, three other draft picks

    AP
    The Chargers, as is increasingly becoming common practice around the league, have moved quickly to start getting their draft picks under contract, announcing Thursday they had reached deals with four rookies, including linebacker Manti Te’o.

    While Te’o endured a drama-filled lead-up to the draft and went unselected in Round One, he has landed with a team that has big plans for him. The 6-1, 241-pound Te’o has a strong chance at starting at inside linebacker for the Chargers, who moved up in the second round to take the former Notre Dame star.

    In addition to signing Te’o, the Chargers said they finalized deals with California wide receiver Keenan Allen (Round Three), Florida International outside linebacker Tourek Williams (Round Six) and Southern Utah quarterback Brad Sorensen (Round Seven).
