Q: Hi, I have a question about Travis Benjamin. Would you say he is the new replacement after losing veteran wide receiver Malcom Floyd?– Mario Romano
Q: How do you see Craig Mager being used because he didn’t see the field as much as I thought he would as a rookie?– Marco Holz
“I just want to be a security blanket for those guys. If they ever need a breather, or if something happens, they can tap out and I’ll go in and they know they won’t miss a beat. So I have to focus and prepare for every single receiver because I don’t know who I might have to replace. I need to study nickel packages, slot receivers, outside players. So I just try to study and learn three little things from each guy. If I can break it down to that and remember those three things, I’ll be good for the game.”
Q: Which draft picks besides the first two picks are you looking forward to watching at Training Camp? – Todd L.
Q: How quiet is it around Chargers Park right now? – Dave Boone
A: Very! The facility buzzes for 11 months out of the year, but these few weeks leading into training camp is the only time I’d classify as a dead period. There is a lot of hard work still being done, but right now is the one chance that most, including players, coaches, scouts and more, get to have some rest and relaxation with friends and family before the nonstop grind begins.
