Notes from San Diego Chargers minicamp

Antonio Gates is not in attendance for San Diego Chargers mandatory minicamp that opened up today. Strange that I posted something this morning about him possibly not making it to camp and he really didn’t make it. I didn’t really expect him to miss out. His absence is excused though, so he will be avoiding the fine and the team is aware of the situation.

Dwight Freeney is on the field participating in team drills today. He didn’t do anything during the previous 3 weeks of voluntary work, but he out on the field working today. That is a great sign for his recovery from the injury.

Here are some videos from the drills:

    I like seeing all these videos of the players practicing. What’s strange is (almost) nobody else has commented since a couple of days ago.

      i thought that was strange also… not even a comment on tony gwynn news. i don’t know what happened to everyone. did boltbeat go on a blacklist of some sort?

        Great player but better person. He will be missed.

        I thought maybe since there were a few games going on yesterday for the world cup that maybe some of them were just busy watching them, but the games are only about 90 minutes long and with no pauses on the clock, so I think they must have felt awkward about Tony Gywnn or something.

    I like them too. I am very interseted in seeing how Iman and Law (from CFL) are doing.

      ditto that
      apparently Inman is really impressing everyone with his big play ability
      I’m hoping law is tearing it up too :)


    I think Jahleel Addae beats out Gilchrist for SS spot.
    And Gilly goes back to his old position, slot.

    Any word on Addae ? The UT reports he didn’t practice today.
