Chargers: Quick Notes

This past week saw the Draft, promotion of a Spanos and so much more. Find out all about it in our notes regarding the Chargers in the last week that may have been overlooked with the 2003 NFL Draft happening this past weekend. Don't worry the Draft is covered as well…

--WR David Boston is due back at the team's offseason workouts this week. He's been to very few of the sessions, getting excused because of a death in his extended family.

--John Spanos, 23, was named a full-time scout for the team. Spanos' grandfather, Alex, owns the team.

--A memorial for John Butler will be held May 8 at the New Ventures Christian Fellowship church in Oceanside. It is open to the public.

While Butler wasn't in the draft room, his mantra which was often heard came true when the Chargers drafted three DBs with their first three picks: "You can never have too many defensive backs," Butler used to say.

--For two straight years, the Chargers have drafted a Big 12 cornerback with their first pick. Last year, it was Texas' Quentin Jammer with the fifth overall selection.

--Unlike year's past, the Chargers won't hold their minicamp the weekend after the draft. Instead, it'll be in mid-June.

--The Chargers continue to talk with the City of San Diego about constructing a new stadium. Needless to say, both parties are watching the proposal by the Rose Bowl with interest, as it bids to lure an NFL team to Pasadena.

--Sammy Davis, the team's first pick, is from Humble, Tex., the same hometown as David Boston.


"Been there, done that." -- Coach Marty Schottenheimer, on why he had not urge to replace John Butler as the team's general manager.
