Time is now for Chargers' Ladarius Green - Eddie Brown (UT$)
Green is known for his limited route tree, but his speed, athleticism and big frame supersede those concerns. He can stretch the field in ways no other Chargers receiver can. He’s also a better run blocker than Gates, which could have a significant impact in rookie running back Melvin Gordon’s early development.

"(Green) still has huge upside and possibilities," said Tight Ends Coach Pete Metzelaars. "Last year he had to fight through a number of different injuries at different times, so I am excited for him this year. He is an asset in the passing game, and has deceptive speed. So I’m looking forward to putting him into situations to take advantage of that, but also challenge him to put more tools into his toolbox."

You know, I was saying to Brad Sorensen, and this was before Chase Rettig was signed, that he is in a very unique situation because he has two guys in Kellen Clemens and Philip Rivers who have been in the NFL for 10-plus years. I got a list out, looked through our schedule, and there were only a couple teams in the same situation. So that is a great opportunity Brad and Chase have to learn from those two guys. It is quite a unique situation, and it’s great.

Hometown fans are hometown fans, though. They’ll forgive the lifetime Charger who’s likely bound for Canton, and given the scope of Gates’ career and relationship with the community, there is no reason why they shouldn’t.
