Chargers Work Out WR David Nelson


The San Diego Chargers have worked out wide receiver David Nelson today. That means that the Malcom Floyd injury could take some time to heal. It definitely looked like an injury that could take some time to return from.

Nelson would be a good option for the Chargers. He played with the Buffalo Bills and was a solid receiver out that way. He has the size that the Chargers like, standing at 6-foot-5. He is coming off of an ACL injury in 2012.

I think that Lavelle Hawkins would be an awesome option for the Chargers as well. He seems like a better fit for the offense. He is able to make plays after the catch and the offense can use players like that.

    Hey if this is the plan to go deep, which i think is the one thing the Chargers are missing on offense, someone to take those safeties with him, then i’d like to see what the young man can do. As of right now Defense are still not afraid of the deep pass. Having that type of threat would get that 8th man out of the box.

    6’5″, coming off an ACL injury. Perfect kind of potentially hungry big target for Philip. Hey last year we picked up DX, and man was he a sight for sore eyes. I will be pulling for this guy big time. Is it too late for him to start Sunday?? :)

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    PR love his Big targets, I hope Nelson looks good at the tryout. Imagine him balling out and getting DX back next year (god willing).

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      Was there a SS at this tryout? lol Man we are slippin on that one.

      • arnie

        LOL. I think they are waiting on Taylor to return. In the meantime keep an eye on Addae.

  • veazy

    I hope he isn’t one of Urban Meyer’s typical YOLO dumbasses.
    nvm, just saw his stats were minimal in college which means Urban Meyer didn’t like him, so I’m guessing he won’t cause any drama.

    I’ll take him! Sign him and start him on Sunday!

  • Jordan

    His girlfriend is a cowboys cheerleader, they want the play book

      hahahah… i liked him in buffalo… think he would be a nice player if the team signed him

      • Jordan

        Next vjax?

          no way is he that.

  • OregonCopper

    Deep threats are nice, but with the OL hurting, this not the time to think about that…

    I like the DX comparison, but I think the Chargers would be playing with fire trying to protect Philip with a bunch of backups while stretching the field…as we’ve already learned last year, this team is not built to win by going deep…this guy seems more like a luxury than a need right now…

    Go Bolts!!

  • S.Bolt

    Love the idea for Hawkins in a Bolt uniform. Current receiver coach for us was his coach @ Tenneessee in 2011 & that year Hawk had 47 reception & 3rd least drops in the NFL. Kid is explosive….We need a spark on offense & special teams. He brings it

  • Nolan

    They need to try out Brandon Kaufman first he’s younger and hopefully less injury prone!!
