Which new kid on the block are you most excited about?
Is it Jordan Knight? Is it one of the receivers? Robert Meachem or Eddie Royal? Is it Le’Ron McClain? Or is it the new guy on the defensive side of the ball, Jarret Johnson?
This is a different type of off-season for us. We usually don’t have this many new names coming through our roster. We usually would ask this question and the only names were people in the draft and a couple of undrafted free agents. This season we actually brought in some names that we know.
Robert Meacham and Eddie Royal are going to add a new element of speed on the offense. They have the tough task to try and fill the production that has left with Vincent Jackson. They will hope to stretch the field and we could see the reverse on offense more often with this speed on the roster. We might even see a few more hitch patterns. As long as they are able to get open down the field, we know that Philip Rivers will be able to hit them.
Is it Le’Ron McClain that you are ready to see in action? This is the first time that we have had a REAL fullback since we let Lorenzo Neal walk. McClain could be busting open some holes for Ryan Mathews and he has the ability to carry the ball as well. Are you looking forward to seeing him lay some people out?
Or is it the rugged Jarret Johnson that you are ready to see in the mix? Not everyone knows about his abilities, but the people out in Baltimore really have hyped him up for us. The players and the fans out there can’t speak a bad word on him and that is from a defense that has respect from everyone.
Or are you excited for whoever we draft? You don’t even know who the new kid is, but you like the possibilities!
There will be a new wave of talent on this team with the additions. Who do you want to see?
