Gordon will likely sign on Friday when he gets into town. Rookie camps will start up this week and Gordon will be here to join the rest of the crew. It will be exciting to see the rookies in their jerseys and getting some work in with the new team.

There will be a lot of high expectations for Gordon when he gets into town. He will get the ball a lot on offense and will be expected to lift up the running game for the Chargers. We will all be watching his development in camp and will want to know how he looks up against NFL competition.

The Chargers will also be expecting a lot out of Denzel Perryman. He will be the hammer on the defense and will be looking to slow down teams that plan on running the football. Many fans are excited about the hits that he will be adding to the defense. He will be competing for playing time with Manti Te’o and Donald Butler in the middle of the defense.

The rookies will be in camp this week. Can’t wait to hear the buzz from camp.
