Training Camp Recap: July 29

Posted by Christopher Smith on July 29, 2011 – 7:56 PM

The Chargers held a special teams walk-through in the morning, then returned for a two-hour practice Friday evening.

Much of the attention centered on players who weren’t on the field, however, as San Diego signed 14 veteran free agents. Those players found themselves on the sideline toward the end of practice and will only be able to watch until Aug. 4, but the media had a buffet at the podium.

FS Eric Weddle, who signed a five-year contract, wants to prove the Chargers have the best secondary in the NFL.

ILB Takeo Spikes called watching practice on the sideline more agonizing than being involved in a jarring collision.

WR Vincent Jackson made it clear there's no animosity between him and the Chargers, signing his franchise offer at 3:01 p.m. and calling the meeting with Dean Spanos and A.J. Smith "like a family reunion."

SS Bob Sanders harped on the importance of building chemistry with the rest of the secondary before the season and says he enjoyed his first rehab-free offseason in four years.

TE Dennis Morris participates in a blocking drill at the beginning of practice. Morris, Kory Sperry and college free agent Brad Taylor likely will vie for the third tight end roster spot behind Antonio Gates and Randy McMichael.

WR Vincent Brown catches one of the first passes of his NFL career after signing a four-year contract Thursday night. The former SDSU receiver said San Diego’s routes are labeled with different terminology but are similar to what he ran with the Aztecs.

One football tidbit: Antoine Cason and Patrick Crayton have split the punt return reps early. Richard Goodman and Marcus Gilchrist have shared kickoff return reps.

 
Stay true and keep pounding,
Christopher
