PFW executive editor and resident Packers expert Dan Arkush presents the fourth of five key matchups in the Packers' Week Eight game this Sunday against the Chargers in San Diego.
The Patriots' pair of talented tight ends will face a very good Chargers safety group in Sunday's Week Two bout.
Here's a matchup to watch in Sunday's Vikings-Chargers game.
The Chargers announced their free-agent signings on Friday night, including RB Mike Tolbert.
The Chargers have agreed to re-sign FS Eric Weddle, making him the highest-paid safety in NFL history.
The Vikings will begin the process of trying to get under the salary cap by releasing DT Jimmy Kennedy.
FS Eric Weddle, expected to be one of the top players on the free-agent market, told a newspaper he'd like to re-sign with the Chargers when the lockout ends.
Too many defensive backs on the Chargers' roster could mean Paul Oliver will have to find a new team to call home next season.
The way we hear it, GM Gene Smith has targeted 2-4 players to pursue when free agency begins. Chargers S Eric Weddle could be one of those players.
The Chargers signed Bob Sanders before the lockout in the hopes that the former Colt will be able to add toughness to an already talented defense.
Although RB Michael Bush is set to become a free agent, Oakland owner Al Davis doesn't want to break up his RB tandem of Bush and Darren McFadden, according to AFC Whispers.
San Diego will try to keep as many of their free agents as possible by tendering many of their key free agents.
An uncertain future is confronting every player these days, but those with contracts expiring this offseason can't move forward with the process of figuring out whether they will stay put or move on to a new team.
With a slew of Chargers set to hit free agency, GM A.J. Smith is about to embark on a busy offseason.
While the Chargers are off to yet another slow start, the team can look to one very specific area for its early struggles: kick coverage.
