Evaluating the Special Teams with ST Coordinator Craig Aukerman - Ricky Henne
When you say his name, my face lights up.  We are very excited about him, but he just can’t show up and make plays.  The players around him have to get better, too.  We expect a lot of good things out of Travis, but we expect the players blocking for him to perform better than last year.  It’s not just on Travis; it’s on everyone else, too.

Versatile Dexter McCoil fills hybrid safety role for Chargers - Eric Williams
"I wish they all looked that way size-wise," the San Diego head coach said. "I’m not going to lie, when I was out there for the first walk-through I had to kind of look again because that’s a big guy out there.

Chargers' Joey Bosa growing tired of J.J. Watt comparisons - Eric Williams
"He's obviously one of the best defenders in the league," Bosa said about the comparisons to Watt in his introductory press conference at Chargers Park. "That's obviously my goal, to come in and have an impact like that. I'm going to do anything I can to help the team win."
