With training camp ready to open up, the team made another roster spot available.

That is one less body at the center position. Nick Hardwick has the spot locked in and Rich Ohrnberger will be the backup to the position. Chris Watt will be working his way to that position as well. There are plenty of reps in training camp to spread round the 3 of them.

This is the big news for the Chargers t start out training camp. At least something is happening. The team is set to report to camp on the 23rd. We are almost there.
