Ladarius Green: Another Option In The Chargers Passing Attack

Let’s talk about tight ends. Not the one on the New England Patriots, I think I am already tired of that story, but the national media will ride that story all the way till the end.

Let’s talk about a young tight end on the San Diego Chargers that hopefully get some opportunities this season. Ladarius Green will have to fight for some playing time, but he could be a mismatch that Mike McCoy and Ken Whisenhunt can use to exploit defenses on Sundays. He has the size and athleticism to be a difference maker. We saw a brief glimpse of his potential last season, but he didn’t get many opportunities after that.

Hopefully he has worked on his blocking and added a little more muscle this offseason. Those were a few things that pushed him down on the depth chart. Having a different coach in town should give him more opportunities though, especially if the coach uses Green’s strengths in the passing attack.

I can’t wait to see the kid get on the field this preseason and regular season. I think he could be another weapon for Philip Rivers and the offense.
