Telesco Getting It Done The Right Way

Telesco-on-Watt-slider

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco has a solid plan to make the Chargers a serious contender in 2015.

First he re-signed left tackle King Dunlap who has played very well in a Charger uniform.

Telesco then added former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones, who had a disappointing 2014 with nine catches for 131 yards. Jones is a very dangerous return man with four career punt returns for touchdowns and five kickoff return TD’s. Talented cornerback Brandon Flowers, who could have been a free agent, re-signed with a four-year, $36-million dollar deal.

It looks like the Chargers will sign Denver free-agent offensive linemen Orlando Franklin and he stands 6-foot-7, 320 pounds. Franklin is 27 years old and should be coming into the prime of his career. This might give the Chargers a chance to move right tackle D.J. Fluker to right guard. Franklin has played right guard; his best spot could be at right tackle.

+ Aztecs get a piece of Mountain West title

After a disappointing home loss to Boise State, the Aztecs rebounded with a road win at UNLV and a blowout win at home against Nevada to finish the conference season 14-4. The Aztecs will be the No. 2 seed in this week’s MW Conference tournament. They will play Thursday against the winner of Nevada-UNLV.

+ Toreros one and done.

USD lost its West Coast Conference tournament quarterfinal game to Pepperdine on Saturday, 50-47. The Toreros finished the season 15-16 and 8-10 in conference. There are rumors everywhere that head coach Bill Grier could be out after eight seasons.

+ Sockers season over after a loss at home to Las Vegas

The Sockers, the regular-season Pacific Division Champions, were eliminated from the Major Arena Soccer League playffs over the weekend by Las Vegas, 7-6. The Sockers finish the season with a 16-5 record.

Time to hit the showers — have a super week.
