The drought of football is oh so close to ending.
The Chargers open training camp to rookies and veterans on July 25.
San Diego’s first preseason football game is August 8.
Football is right around the corner and just in time. There is only so much baseball, MLS and Tour de France a person can take. Football needs to be here. NOW!
With training camp less than 10 days away, speculation is starting to mount of how the final 53-man roster will eventually unfold.
Training camp is down to the nitty-gritty, where players—veterans and rookies—need to earn roster spots.
Inevitably, someone steps up to the challenge and surprises the coaches, teammates and the media during training camp. Sometimes that surprise is a good thing (see Michael Harris last year). Sometimes it is a bad thing (see Jared Gaither last year).
Who will surprise when the players converge to Chargers Park on Thursday?
