The San Diego Chargers continued to revamp their secondary, selecting Texas A&M free safety Terrance Kiel with the 64th pick.

The Chargers, who ranked last against the pass in 2002, have made improving the secondary their main goal.

They selected cornerback Sammy Davis in the first round and cornerback Drayton Florence earlier in the second.

Kiel started all year in his final collegiate season, leading the Aggies for the second straight year in tackles with 96. He also collected three interceptions and one 1/2 sacks.

The Chargers seem to improve every season...and this season should be another improvement. Although they lost some key players on the defesensive side. There offense is a very good one. I would look out for Tomolison. He is one touogh back.

San Diego Chargers second-round draft pick Terrence Kiel, shot during an attempted carjacking on July 4, had surgery Wednesday to remove a bullet from his abdomen and fragments from his left knee.

The surgery went well, general manager A.J. Smith said. Kiel, who had been the leading contender to start at strong safety, will miss at least the first two exhibition games.

Kiel was shot in the calf, knee and stomach in the parking lot of a Houston mall. He was released from the hospital two days later. Chargers doctors later discovered he has a fractured bone in his lower left leg and loose fragments in his knee.

The broken bone won't require surgery. But because it will require Kiel to rest for four to six weeks, the Chargers decided to schedule surgery to remove the bullet from Kiel's abdomen and the fragments from his knee.

"The doctor said it went great," Smith said.

Kiel will miss the first two exhibition games, then be re-evaluated in mid-August. "He certainly should be fine for the opener," Smith said, referring to the first regular-season game on Sept. 7 at Kansas City.

Although he'll miss practice for the first 31/2 weeks, Kiel will be on the sidelines and attending meetings.

"He'll be doing everything but being on the field," Smith said. "It's very important to not fall behind mentally."

San Diego Chargers receiver Tim Dwight saw his season end prematurely for the second time in three years on Wednesday when he was placed on injured reserve with a partially collapsed right lung. Dwight suffered the injury in the Chargers' loss to Denver on November 16. It is similar to the injury that forced him to miss six games during the 2001 season, his first in San Diego. Dwight finished the season with 14 catches for 193 yards and 22 kick-off returns for 488 yards. Wide receiver Grant Mattos was signed off the practice squad to replace Dwight. Mattos was active for two games this season and did not have any receptions. Dwight is the 10th player and third wide receiver put on injured reserve by the Chargers this season. The other receivers are Eric Parker, who still ranks as the team's third leading receiver with 18 catches for 244 yards and three touchdowns, and Tim Baker, who was placed on the list before the season started. end

Flutie is playing better at Qb but other than that Tomilison is just amazing. He is one of the top backs in the NFL.

I don't know how long he'll be the starter for but their season is down the drain.

Maybe they should just try to develop Brees no matter how badly he's played lately.

The end of this season, go hard on Brees in the offseason so he improves and he should start next season (Brees)

The Chargers may cut Doug Flutie.


The Chargers could decide to dump Flutie and replace him with a "high-profile veteran" QB.

THe Chargers grant david boston permission to seek a trade.
