Training Camp Preview: Tight Ends & Wide Receivers

Posted Jul 21, 2013

Get ready for Training Camp as we preview the San Diego Chargers tight ends and wide receivers.

From now until the start of training camp, Jordan Beane and I will be previewing each position for the San Diego Chargers.

We continue the series with a look at the wide receivers and tight ends on the roster. 

One of the deepest position groups on the roster, Malcom Floyd returns as the elder statesmen of the wide receivers.  A mainstay in the Chargers’ lineup since 2008, Floyd’s totals the last five seasons include 208 catches for 3,628 yards and 21 touchdowns. Danario Alexander returns as well after joining the team in the middle of 2012.  Alexander caught 37 passes for 658 yards and seven touchdowns, which tied for most on the team and were the third-most in the NFL by any player after Nov. 1. After missing all of 2012 due to a broken ankle, Vincent Brown hopes to make a big impact in 2013. The Chargers invested a third-round draft choice this year in Keenan Allen, who many graded as a first-round talent. Coming back for a second season for the Bolts are Eddie Royal and Robert Meachem, who are looking for bounce back seasons.  Richard Goodman is also back in the fold after missing most of last year with a hamstring injury, and the Chargers also signed former Seattle Seahawk Deon Butler in the off-season. Rounding out the wide receiving corps are talented youngsters in Mike Willie, Dan DePalma and Luke Tasker.

Heading up the tight ends is future Hall of Famer Antonio Gates.  In 2012, the Chargers legend became the franchise’s all-time leader for career touchdown catches. He enters 2013 with 83 career scores. Joining him is free agent signee John Phillips.  Over his first four seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, he proved to be a superb blocker and able pass catcher.  Last year’s fourth-round draft choice Ladarius Green is back for his sophomore season, and he’s joined by Dallas Walker, Ben Cotton and David Rolf.

Watch the above video for analysis of the wide receivers and tight ends.
