The third day of the training camp is the first chance of the Orlando Franklin

Quarterback Kellen Clemens shoots a pass to tight end Sean McGrath for a 12 yards gain.

“We’re just here to lighten the mood and let the kids know that we take care of our teeth too,” mentioned Sean McGrath.

At halftime the Chargers will recognize six Vietnam War veterans as a remembrance of the 50th anniversary of the war. The Chargers will also have wounded warriors as special guests and a patriotic fireworks show to wrap up half-time.

Tyrell Williams remembers his draft experience the same way, when all the attention was paid to Amari Cooper, Kevin White, DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor and Phillip Dorsett. In fact, they were first five wideouts selected in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Yet outside of Cooper, it’s Williams, undrafted out of Western Oregon, who has made the most impact at the professional level. After all, he’s the only other one with a 1,000 yard season under his belt.

The 6-4, 205-pound wideout is fresh off a breakout sophomore campaign in which he led the team with 69 catches and 1,059 yards. In the process, he became only the 15th Charger ever to surpass the 1,000 yard plateau. Even more surprising, he never reached that mark in high school or college.

So is Williams worried that some may see his 2016 success as an aberration?
“Absolutely not,” the 25-year old said, dripping with sweat following a workout with his teammates. “I don’t even think like that. I put in a lot of work heading into last season, and I’m approaching this year with the same mindset. I have a lot to improve on, so I’m focused on just getting better. Getting 1,000 yards is something I always wanted to get, and I was able to do that my first year really playing.”

A closer look shows he is putting up numbers at a rate rarely seen even with the team’s strong history at the position. Andre Williams is strengthening the exercise. Los Angeles Chargers jersey china

Williams is the first wideout since Vincent Jackson in 2009 to catch a touchdown in four consecutive games. Should he grab another at Carolina on Sunday, he’d be the first Bolt since John Jefferson in 1980 to make it five in a row.

Between moves to different countries, multiple homeless shelters, group homes and even arrests at a young age, Orlando Franklin has experienced more life-changing events at 27 years old than some will ever in their lifetimes.
Franklin has been able to overcome his trials and tribulations, and is sharing his story on NBC’s TODAY Show Friday morning in their weekly “Together We Make Football” segment.
“(My experience) has made me want to be better,” Franklin said. “It made me want to understand why I was doing things. In college and even in the pros, it makes you put a lot of stuff in perspective of where you came from and where you don’t want to end up at.” Nike San Diego Chargers Logo Long Sleeve T-Shirt White

After signing with the Chargers in March, day three of training camp was the first opportunity for left guard Orlando Franklin to put his new team’s pads on.
“It was hot,” Franklin said. “You noticed that right away with walk-throughs, but I think we definitely have a promising team. I think it was a great first day. Are we where we need to be? Probably not, but we have to take care of business and keep on grinding through camp.”

The San Diego Chargers added a versatile and imposing figure to their offensive line Tuesday, agreeing to terms with guard Orlando Franklin on a five-year contract. The 6-7, 320-pounder adds even more beef to a massive line that features the 6-9, 330-pound King Dunlap and 6-5, 339-pound D.J. Fluker.

Dontrelle Inman

PERSONAL:
Dontrelle Javaar Inman is an American football wide receiver for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League. He was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2011.
One player to keep an eye on in 2016 is wide receiver Dontrelle Inman. A former import from the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts, Inman more than tripled his production from 2014 to 2015. His 13.9 yards per catch average in 2015 was the highest on the team and 29th-highest in the NFL among players with at least 35 catches.
Inman enjoyed a number of memorable moments in 2015. Among them, he caught his first NFL touchdown pass in historic Lambeau Field. He was on the receiving end of the pass that put Philip Rivers over 40,000 yards for his career. And during a Christmas Eve game in Oakland, the wide receiver had to play free safety in overtime after injuries had decimated the Bolts’ secondary.

His junior year got off to a slow start, however, as he was suspended for the opener for violating team rules. Statistically, his 2015 season was not as impressive as the year before (16 tackles for loss, five sacks) but Big Ten coaches still named him the conference’s Defensive Lineman of the Year because of his rare combination of strength against the run and consistent presence in the backfield.
