There’s four games left in the season, and while I’m upset by our record, I’m feeling pretty good on a personal level. I feel healthy and that I’ve been making strides in my play. It feels good to just know that I’m growing as a player. Hopefully I continue to grow because I’m learning more with each game.
For the team, I feel like we are very prepared for Pittsburgh this week. We’re playing in a hostile environment, and they’ve got a lot of great players. They are really known for their defense, so it will be a great experience playing there.
I need to give a shout out to my teammates on the defensive line, especially Vaughn Martin who is here next to me right now. He’s always looking out for me and I’m learning a lot from him. I look forward to riding out with him for a bunch more years.
Well that’s about it for today. I have to go get ready for one last practice before we head to Pittsburgh.
Till next time,

The first padded practice of training camp was a physical one that started with a bang, but safety Steve Gregory shined the brightest Sunday afternoon. He broke up a pair of passes and picked off another. The fourth-year pro worked with the second team in base and the first team in nickel. He’s a great guy who you can’t help but be happy for.
Norv doesn’t do a full Oklahoma drill like his predecessor but he will throw it in there every once in a while. Ogemdi “Oggie” Nwagbuo beat Tyronne Green three times and then Louis Vasquez won a battle with Vaughn Martin. Fun stuff.
Eric Weddle talked about the secondary’s goal of eliminating big plays, and they did again Sunday. Quentin Jammer knocked away a pair of deep balls, one on a deep flag pattern where Weddle was closing over the top.
Lots of players look different when they put on the pads, but no one more than Jacob Hester. He’s put on about 10 pounds this offseason and he had a nice practice. There was a lot of inside run work and Hester could repeatedly be heard popping the pads.
When they wear the pads they do my favorite drill: one-on-one pass rush. Martin looked really good in that period, and you can really see English’s quickness off the ball when he’s isolated.
Two a days tomorrow so check back for plenty more.

The Chargers have agreed to terms on four-year contracts with third-round pick Louis Vasquez and fourth round picks Vaughn Martin, Tyronne Green and Gartrell Johnson.
Fifth-round selection Brandon Hughes signed his rookie contract in June.
This leaves the Chargers with just three unsigned picks: first-rounder Larry English; sixth-rounder Kevin Ellison, and seventh-rounder Demetrius Byrd.
Rookies and select veterans will be on the field Monday morning for the first training camp practice. The entire squad will be on the field together for the first time on Friday, July 31.
Linebacker Anthony Felder has also agreed to terms on a contract and will re-join the team on Monday. An undrafted free agent from Cal-Berkeley, Felder spent the spring with the Chargers but was released in June.
