Some may take this as a sign that the Chargers coaches are not happy with the current crop of Cornerbacks on the roster, including former Jaguar Derek Cox, but Middleton probably isn't threatening anyone for a starting job.
From what I can gather, Middleton is pretty much invisible against the run and struggles against spread-passing attacks. He's done better in pass coverage against more basic offensive sets, which leads me to believe that he is better in man-coverage than he is in zone.
It's camp, which means anything can happen, but don't expect Middleton to be much more than a camp body or a Special Teams player.
