Chargers | Will keep 3-4 defensive scheme

Kevin Acee, of the San Diego Union-Tribune, reports the San Diego Chargers will keep the 3-4 as their base defense in 2009. Defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, however, is an aficionado of the 4-3 defensive scheme and will blend some of his past into the team's defense. "I took some of the things I've done in the past and tried to incorporate it so it fit a 3-4 defense," Rivera said. "I didn't want to change the integrity of the defense. It's not something they haven't done. But it's a refinement of what they've done."
