The Chargers lost star wide receiver Vincent Jackson, but they were able to bring in Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal in an attempt to replace Jackson's production.
According to Scott Bair of the North County Times, Meachem and Rivers have been working tirelessly in order to build a solid working relationship.
All eyes will be on Meachem this year after the team inked the former New Orleans Saint to a big deal.
However, Malcom Floyd might be the one who is the main beneficiary of Jackson's departure. If Floyd can stay healthy in 2012, a 1,000-yard season should be in his reach.
Meachem and Floyd are the top two receivers on the team, but Vincent Brown might have something to say about that in the near future.
Just a few weeks ago, there was uncertainty as to whether or not Brown would beat out Eddie Royal for the slot receiver spot. Royal still has a chance, but it appears like the spot is Brown's due to the groin injury that has hampered Royal.
Now, Dan McLellan of CBS Sports speculates that Brown has a slight chance to start over Meachem.
Brown had an impressive first preseason game, which included a 36-yard catch and an impressive 27-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown.
Despite the media attention he has garnered recently, Brown will likely be the third receiver on the Chargers, and Meachem should be the starter all year.
However, it is nice to have three wide receivers who have the ability to start.
Don't forget about Royal—he can be an impact player for the Chargers, who hope that he can revert to his rookie form. During Royal's rookie season, he racked up 980 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
The Chargers may not have the same star power at wide receiver, but they certainly have a deeper group of receivers than in 2011.
