Deep CB group should cover for loss of talented Jason Verrett - Eric Williams
“There’s great competition amongst them,” Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said about the cornerback position. “Every play, you have to be on it. With competition, it just keeps elevating the level of play. As a coach, that’s what you want on a team.”

Run Defense Makes Statement on Day Three - Ricky Henne
“I was pleased with the run defense today,” he said. “Our run defense usually on that first, second or third (day in pads) are always ahead of the offense because you go all offseason passing the ball. You never get a chance running the ball until you get to training camp, so the offense has some catching up to do in that area, but I was pleased with the run defense.”

Mike Pouncey Ignited and Ready for the Upcoming Season - Rachel Gossen
“I never thought I’d play for anybody but the Dolphins, but once they released me, it made me want to be an even better football player,” Pouncey said Monday afternoon. “It made me want to prove everybody wrong. I’m excited to be here, I can’t wait to help this run game out (and) help this football team do something special.”

Kyzir White Earns Highest Possible Praise from Coach Lynn - Ricky Henne
“It’s hard for me to talk about Kyzir because I get real excited,” Lynn said. “I don’t want to jump the gun on him. I want to get him in some games and watch him play, but just watching him run around here and some of the things he did in the offseason, I get real excited talking about him. His speed. His attitude. His explosiveness. He just has great instincts as a football player. We had a hammer on him (in the draft).”

Can Browns, Raiders and Chargers deal with camp setbacks? - Tom Krasovic
We’ll see what a handful of tight-end candidates can do as alternatives to veteran newcomer Virgil Green, who’s a good blocker. Gates likely wouldn’t need much time to acclimate if the Chargers signed him in, say, mid-August.
