Chargers' needs on O-line press on
By Bill Williamson
Yahoo reports the Titans, Colts and Bills are all chasing top guards, Louis Vasquez of the San Diego Chargers and Buffalo’s Andy Levitre.
The Chargers also have interest in Levitre. The report states Vasquez’s chances of returning to the Chargers are slim. The Chargers have massive issues on the offensive line, so they better figure something out.
Regarding the Chargers’ most pressing need on the offensive line, San Diego general manager Tom Telesco told U-T San Diego there is nothing imminent going on with the status of left tackle Jared Gaither. I expect the Chargers to address their needs and then make a decision on Gaither.
Meanwhile, Early Doucet could potentially be a name the receiver-needy Chargers look at as a No. 3 receiver. He played for new San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt in Arizona, Doucet was a favorite of the coach there.
In another AFC West-related note: The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Georgia pass-rusher Jarvis Jones received good medical news. There has been concern because he has a narrowing of the spine. If healthy, Jones could be an option for Oakland with the No. 3 pick.
