Chargers rookie Mike Williams, the seventh overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft, on if he expects to start on Day 1: "Aw yeah, most definitely. It's going to take hard work. I mean, nothing is going to be like, 'Here you go, Mike. This is your job.' They have the guys they have still there. I just have to go work, learn the offense and just show the coaches and Philip [Rivers] that I'm capable of going out there and playing for them."

Forty of the top NFL rookies from the 2017 NFL Draft learned about the business of football today at the 23rd annual NFL Players Association (NFLPA) Rookie Premiere, presented by Panini America, in Beverly Hills, Calif. The event will continue through Saturday (May 18-20).

Rams COO Kevin Demoff, on the new stadium being delayed until 2020: "Our organization has always taken a long-term approach on the Los Angeles project. This is important to get right. Los Angeles has waited a long time for the NFL to return; they've waited a long time for a world-class stadium. ... What would be a bigger disappointment than pushing back a year is failing to deliver on (Stan Kroenke's) vision."

Current NFL rules prohibit a stadium from hosting a Super Bowl in its inaugural season. With the opening of the Rams/Chargers stadium delayed until 2020, that means owners would have to approve a waiver of the rule to allow Super Bowl LV to be played there as scheduled. There is recent precedent for a Super Bowl-related rules waiver. Owners granted one that requires temperatures to exceed 50 degrees in the month before an open-air Super Bowl to allow NY/NJ to bid for Super Bowl XLVIII.

The one-year construction delay for Los Angeles' new football stadium will not necessarily force the NFL to move Super Bowl LV, which is scheduled to be held there in early 2021. The host committee, along with the Rams and Chargers, can submit a waiver to bypass a rule that otherwise would require the stadium to have been open for two regular seasons prior to hosting a Super Bowl. There is precedent for granting waivers to Super Bowl rules. Commissioner Roger Goodell waived the league's rule on minimum temperatures at the Super Bowl so that MetLife Stadium in New Jersey could host Super Bowl XLVIII.

Chargers announce they've signed fourth-round selection safety Rayshawn Jenkins. Third-round selection Dan Feeney is the team's only draft pick that remains unsigned. The Chargers also signed a punter, Toby Baker. At 6-3 and 210 pounds, Baker is an Arkansas product who participated in the Chargers' rookie minicamp as a tryout player. Incumbent punter Drew Kaser struggled on the first day of OTAs this week. The Chargers also announced the team waived South Carolina OT Mason Zandi.
