After the Chargers picked defensive end Joey Bosa with the third overall pick of this year’s draft, they said they had their eye on him throughout the entire pre-draft process and knew that he was they guy they would take once it was known quarterbacks would be the first two picks. Bosa is one of three players from the draft without a deal as his agents and the Chargers squabble over offset language and the timing of when bonus money will be paid to Bosa. “I don’t know,” Telesco said on The Mighty 1090 in San Diego, via ESPN.com. Telesco said that he understood some people were puzzled about the standoff since it is “not really over money,” but said that the Chargers believe in “certain things of consistency and doing things the same way for everyone on the team” when it comes to contracts.
The Denver Broncos have absolutely enjoyed playing the San Diego Chargers since Peyton Manning joined them in 2012. Denver has gone 8-1 against Philip Rivers’ squad, and the meetings haven’t generally been all that close. With Manning and the Broncos struggling at 2-3 through the first five games of 2012, they were in danger of slipping to 2-4 on the season, trailing 24-0 at halftime.
