Morning links: Chargers and softball

Good morning. I’ll be hosting a live chat this afternoon beginning at 3 p.m. ET right here, so stop by with your questions regarding the San Diego Chargers.

Bolts from the Blue offers pictures submitted by a reader showing Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, safety Eric Weddle and running back Danny Woodhead playing in a recreational softball game here in San Diego.

The pictures include Rivers wearing a fake mullet wig and shorts that would make John Stockton proud. I saw Rivers wearing a similar wig around Chargers Park last year, claiming he was impersonating former teammate and good friend Charlie Whitehurst.

The softball game looks like a nice offseason team-building event for the Chargers, as they prepare to make another playoff run in 2014.

According to Chargers radio color analyst Hank Bauer, San Diego coach Mike McCoy took the entire team to play golf this week.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports puts D.J. Fluker and Melvin Ingram among his top 25 breakout players list for the upcoming season.

Bucky Brooks of NFL.com re-grades the 2011 NFL draft, raising San Diego’s grade from a B-minus to a B grade. I agree, with Corey Liuget, Marcus Gilchrist, Vincent Brown and Shareece Wright remaining core players for the Chargers.

Elliot Harrison of NFL.com lists former San Diego Chargers coach Sid Gilman among the game changers of the 1960s.

Ricky Henne of Chargers.com notes that tight end David Johnson has a been a player who has stood out during OTAs.
