Chargers camp notes
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
SAN DIEGO -- Greetings from the town that calls itself America's Finest City. How am I to argue with that claim?
I arrived in San Diego near the end of the Chargers' first practice Saturday and I was able to catch up with some folks. Here are some observations and notes from the morning:
- First-round pick Larry English was at the team' facility Saturday morning to sign his contract. He is expected to make his practice debut Saturday afternoon.
- Cornerback Quentin Jammer had a nice interception late in practice.
- Coach Norv Turner praised the play of backup running back Michel Bennett, who should make the team.
- The Chargers practice late Saturday afternoon. The team has one practice Sunday, be the team's first practice in pads.
- Turner reiterated that Jacques Cesaire is a starter at the spot.
- Linebacker Shawne Merriman's mohawk needs some more blue dye. It's fading.
