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.
