San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith will both be fired after the end of the regular season.

San Diego Chargers general manager A.J. Smith said he could not believe LB Melvin Ingram was still on the board at the No. 18 pick in the NFL Draft.

Some NFL owners, including San Diego Chargers' Dean Spanos, feel that agents are beginning to have a tremendous amount of influence over teams around the league. "Agents have a lot of control over different teams," Spanos said. "It's a bad situation, where certain teams are controlled by agents with key coaches and key players. It's certainly a problem we need to continue to address ... There are other owners that feel the same." Chargers general manager A.J. Smith, however, said he does not allow his team to be manipulated by an agent. "An agent is only powerful, manipulative and influential if you allow it," Smith said. "There is no 'we' in the (agent-team) relationship. The most important aspect of this whole deal is the team. That's all that ever matters."
