Of all the newest signings that the Chargers have brought in, Norval is most excited about the addition of LeRon McClain:
The guy I’m really excited that we added in the offseason is Le’Ron McClain, because he’s a very versatile player and he’s a big old-school fullback. But he’s a good runner, he’s got good catching skills and I think he’ll be a big addition. – Norv Turner on ESPN 1100
McClain is going to bring toughness on the offense and to the running game. The Bolts Nation misses having Lorenzo Neal in the backfield plowing the way for the runningback, and now we have someone that can bring that dimension back onto the team.
Norval is super stoked that he can catch the ball and run the ball also, but his biggest asset will be making those holes for Ryan Mathews. Leron’s job is to make Ryan Mathews a SUPERSTAR! Anything else after that, will be a cherry on top. MAKE THEM HOLES!
