It hasn’t taken long, but the Chargers’ WR corps has gone from a group that seemed to be severely lacking in playmakers two years ago to a stable that now doesn’t have room for a former first-rounder whom the team traded for only this spring. Rashaun Woods, a bust to date as the 49ers’ first-round pick in 2004, was released by the Chargers just days into training camp. General manager A.J. Smith indicated the Chargers are “really comfortable” with the other six receivers who have been in the program for some time. Woods’ tender hamstring didn’t help his chances, but the progress shown by youngsters Malcolm Floyd, Greg Camarillo and especially Vincent Jackson, a second-round pick a year ago, sealed Woods’ fate. Slowed by an Achilles tendon injury and then a strained calf in his first training camp and into the regular season, Jackson was a nonfactor as a rookie. Yet now that he’s healthy and has a firm understanding of the offense and a budding rapport with new QB Philip Rivers, sources say the 6-5, 235-pound Jackson is finding a nice comfort level and a sense of confidence that should make him a factor sooner rather than later.

Nothing really new...but at least the media is talking about it.

At least they don't speak so poorly about our 'stable of receivers' whereas most talk about us includes the phrase "weak receiving corps outside of Gates"
