    With Kynan Forney resigned yesterday, the Chargers have four more unrestricted free agents. The team won’t pursue Igor Olshansky, Mike Goff, Marques Harris or Jeremy Newberry back.

    A.J. confirmed that the team has placed second-round tenders on restricted free agents Malcom Floyd and Cletis Gordon. They can shop with other teams, but the Chargers have first right of refusal. If the Chargers chose not to match an offer sheet signed by either player, the Bolts will receive a second-round...

    No huge surprises thus far... And, nothing that saves us a ton of 09 money either...

    Big Mac had a neck opperation three weeks ago that will sideline him for about five months. He battled the injury all season but is expected to be full strength by camp.

    Could be a purely financial decision... Or could indicate that we are ataking MLB via the draft and Matt can be a stop gap unitl new kid is ready for prime time...

    Matt W is not the future at MLB on this team, but he is probably the better stop gap until the future is found.

    Alex Marvez, of FOXSports.com, reports the Dallas Cowboys have been calling other NFL teams trying to trade SS Roy L. Williams, according to a source. If they are not able to trade him, Williams could be released.

    Man, I'll take him! Won't come cheap though and I don't think he's an AJ type guy.

    So far nothing seismic.

    Disappointed for Waters.... after all the talk/hope/hype nothing. Terrible pick in hindsight obviously.

    A little surprised about Harris. He was tendered high last yr and yet now he is completely surplus to requirements... Strange. I wondered if he was ever any good. Must have been the back flips.........

    And what's with signing Forney after never giving him one play on 08?. Amazing. If Goff was on his last legs and Forney is to be the answer surely he shoulda been playing in 08. Again, amazing.

    They wrapped it up... Word was that the LT questions were skirted in good ol AJ fasion. I still say that no news is good news....Just don't ask me to define "good news"....

    No real big news and no real savings made either. I don't expect us to be active in FA this year....

    Salary cap was increased four million dollars this year. We haven't extended any of our big name guys yet. Still no word on LT. We've let go scrubs, and kept other scrubs. Who knows what will happen this year, but I doubt we'll go after anyone in free agency till teams start trimming their roster in July.

    I don't know why they did that but Waters did have opportunities since he's been drafted to get in there and play but he kept either not being able to get on the field or injured so he couldn't. Besides we have had a ton of middle linebackers of which we removed two.
