    Williams signed

    Demorrio Williams has played eight seasons in the NFL. Most recently he played in12 games for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2011 as a reserve, recording 14 tackles. The Chiefs released him earlier this week in a move to save $1.7 million against the salary cap.

    Williams signed with the Chiefs in 2008, after spending the 2004-2007 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons selected the Beckville, Texas native in the fourth-round of the 2004 NFL draft.

    Williams had an interesting start to his football career, after high school he went to a JUCO but then left to work in an oil-field before walking on at Kilgore College. He then transferred to Nebraska.

    Williams is expected to back up Takeo Spikes and Donald Butler at inside linebacker.

    Negotiating with Gaither and Hardwick

    The Chargers have until March 13 to sign T Jared Gaither and C Nick Hardwick or they will become unrestricted free-agents. According to the San Diego U-T, the Chargers are working on contracts for both.

    Vote Rivers or Gates

    From the I bet you the NFL league office doesn’t like this file:

    Philip Rivers supports Rick Santorum for president. A press release reads in part, “I am supporting Rick Santorum for President because of his stance on issues that attack vital Christian values our country was founded upon …Rick Santorum will also fight to create jobs and expand opportunities for all Americans”

    It may not be that the league office has a political stance one way or another, but it may not like its players creating potential PR problems that politics often brings.

    Favorites to land Vincent Jackson?

    According to Bill Williamson of ESPN: Washington, Chicago, San Francisco, New England and Buffalo.

    In a press release A.J. Smith said "Vincent will enter the market, and we will see what happens. We would like to have him continue on with us, but other teams now will enter the picture.”

    Williamson also noted that the Chargers could possibly make a play at Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne, should they lose Jackson.

    Wayne is 33-years old and expected to leave Indianapolis where he has spent his entire 11-year NFL career, with five trips to the Pro Bowl.

    Wimbley could be available

    Negotiations between the Oakland Raiders and LB Kamerion Wimbley are ongoing but there is a possibility the Silver and Black let him walk, in which case the Chargers could be in play to sign the 28-year old. Most expect Oakland will release him rather than paying him $17.5 million guaranteed.

    Super Mario

    The San Diego UT also reports the Chargers have spoken with the agent for Houston Texans free-agent defensive end Mario Williams, and have a specified amount of money they would be willing to pay Williams. Williams is expected to garner one of the largest free-agent contracts for a defensive player in NFL history.

    Manning Mania

    The Chargers are about five teams it seems that haven’t been linked with Peyton Manning.
    David Letterman head writer Eric Stangel tweeted

    BREAKING NFL: Out of habit, Archie Manning just went on the record to say Peyton will never play for the #Chargers

    Of course the Chargers could see Manning twice a year either with Kansas City or Denver according to the latest rumors.

    More talk about Perry at pick 18

    -USC Trojans linebacker Nick Perry impressed scouts and NFL personnel Wednesday at the school’s official pro day. Chargers director of college scouting John Spanos was at USC’s pro day. The Bolts no doubt have interest in Perry but he may not be around at No. 18.
