So, say you sign your rookie contract in the NFL, what’s the first thing you’ll buy? A new car? A house for yourself? What about a house for someone closest to you? That’s what Chargers rookie Derwin James did, buying his mom a home in Florida and fulfilling a lifelong dream.
And speaking of James, rookie ratings for Madden NFL 19 were released this week. Where does the safety rank? Well, he cracked the top five defensive rookies list, coming in at number three with an 80 OVR – the same rating as Broncos DE Bradley Chubb, and just one digit off from the top defensive rook, Bears LB Roquan Smith. Check out the full top five here, and read below for more on what EA Sports had to say about James.
Congratulations are in order for Hunter Henry and his wife, Parker, as they tied the knot last Saturday in Little Rock, AR. A few Chargers were in attendance including Austin Ekeler, Derek Watt, Drew Kaser and Sean Culkin, who from the looks of it, definitely “lived his best life” while rocking out to some RHCP.
The Chargers’ 2018 training camp schedule is official, so mark your calendars to watch the Bolts prepare for the upcoming season! The team will hold 14 practices open to the public between July 28 and August 23. For more information, please visit www.chargers.com/camp.
