Week in Review: May 13-19

Posted May 19, 2013

Here's a recap of what went down at Chargers Park the past week.

It was a whirlwind week at Chargers Park, beginning with the first three OTA sessions of the offseason and culminating with the addition of one of the greatest pass rushers in NFL history, Dwight Freeney.

Here is a recap of what went down.

On Monday, the entire team hit the field, and we documented the change of position for two players, Marcus Gilchrist and Jeromey ClaryGilchrist has embraced his switch to safety next to Eric Weddle, while Clary has shifted inside to right guard with the addition of first round draft choice D.J. Fluker.

To hear directly from the Chargers themselves, watch the videos below from Head Coach Mike McCoy, Philip Rivers and Donald Butler.



Unfortunately, the news to come out of OTA’s wasn’t all positive as it was reported on Tuesday that Melvin Ingram suffered a torn ACL during practice.  With the second-year outside linebacker out due to injury, Larry English will be counted on to step in.

On Thursday, the Bolts signed outside linebacker Thomas Kesier, formerly of the Carolina Panthers.  Keiser figures to add depth to the outside linebacker position.

The biggest news this week of course came on Saturday when the team announced they agreed to terms with Dwight Freeney.  Over 11 seasons in Indianapolis, Freeney recorded 378 tackles, 107.5 sacks, 44 forced fumbles, 14 passes defensed and three interceptions, Read all about Freeney and what he will bring to the Bolts right here.

Tying up some other odds and ends from the week, the Chargers surprised long-time season ticket holder Mike Enge as the grand prize winner to next year’s Super Bowl. We kicked off our Thursday Throwback series with a photo history of Philip Rivers. On Friday, eight members from the team appeared at STAR/PAL’s 13th Annual Celebrity Waiter Luncheon. Also, the team announced the single game tickets are set to go on sale on Monday, May 20th.

Finally, the Chargers organization was saddened to hear about the passing of former running back Chuck Muncie, who passed away suddenly on Tuesday.  Here’s a look back at his tremendous career in San Diego, and you can hear what his teammate Hank Bauer had to say about him below.
