    Chargers tight end Brandon Manumalenua was still a member of the St. Louis Rams when he was home in Los Angeles the first day of April's two-day NFL draft and realized he would soon be playing for a new team.

    First he saw the Rams, with new coach Scott Linehan, draft Colorado tight end Joe Klopfenstein in the second round. Then the Rams reached for a tight end again by taking USC's Dominique Byrd in the third round.

    "The writing was kind of on the wall that I would be traded," Manumalenua said. "They were going in a different direction, and it was something I had to accept."</blockquote>
