Philip Rivers and Thomas Davis: Old souls united by on-field competition

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Thomas Davis heard the chirping from across the field as he worked on his pass drops and cracked a smile.

"Get back in that weak middle drop!" bellowed quarterback Philip Rivers at Davis as Rivers transitioned to another drill.

It's only the start for Davis, the veteran linebacker the Los Angeles Chargers acquired in free agency this offseason, and it'll continue on Monday when he and the defense go against the offense for the first day of organized team activities. That's when Davis will face the incessant chatter of the veteran quarterback for the first time in practice.
