Summer vacation came a day early for the San Diego Chargers.
Second-year head coach Mike McCoy canceled the final day of mandatory minicamp as a reward for his team's efforts in the offseason, telling reporters he was pleased with all the work done up to that point:
I think the players have done an outstanding job this offseason and worked extremely hard. They’ve done a great job and have done everything we’ve asked of them. So this was a little bit of appreciation for what they did. I think we’re at a good point right now. We’ve got a long ways to go, but this is the best thing for the football team moving forward.
The next step for McCoy's Chargers will be training camp on July 24, but for now, the players will enjoy a five-week break before getting back to work.
Here's the latest buzz following minicamp.
