As I wrote about earlier, the <a href="http://www.patriotsonlineofficial.com/shop-by-players-andre-tippett-jersey-c-1_3.html">Andre Tippett Jersey</a> Chargers announced Tuesday the team is holding out rookie receiver Mike Williams for the rest of offseason work due to a mild herniation in his lower back. Former Chargers team doctor David Chao writes that there’s reason for concern due to the injury.
With Williams unavailable, two <a href="http://www.patriotsonlineofficial.com/shop-by-players-barkevious-mingo-jersey-c-1_4.html">Barkevious Mingo Jersey</a> young receivers who stood out included Jamaal Jones and Geremy Davis. I wrote about Jones earlier this week. And Davis made a couple of impressive catches during team drills on Tuesday.
The Chargers claimed Davis <a href="http://www.patriotsonlineofficial.com/shop-by-players-brandon-bolden-jersey-c-1_6.html">Brandon Bolden Jersey</a> off waivers after the New York Giants released him in Week 10 of last season, and he remained on the team’s active roster. At 6-foot-2 and 217 pounds, Davis is a big-bodied receiver with speed and can make contested catches in a crowd.
“Absolutely, as they should,” Lynn said. “They’re competitive, they’re competing. And like I said, they’re doing a good job.”
Cornerback Michael Davis fits the mold: At 6-2 and 195 pounds, Michael Davis, an undrafted rookie <a href="http://www.patriotsonlineofficial.com/shop-by-players-cameron-fleming-jersey-c-1_7.html">Cameron Fleming Jersey</a> out of Brigham Young, fits the prototype of a long, rangy cornerback in defensive coordinator Gus Bradley’s Cover 3 scheme. Davis ran a 4.4-second, 40-yard time at his pro day.
With starting cornerbacks <a href="http://www.patriotsonlineofficial.com/shop-by-players-chris-hogan-jersey-c-1_8.html">Chris Hogan Jersey</a> Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward still nursing injuries, Davis put his considerable skills on display with the starting unit, breaking up a couple of passes during team drills.
Trevor Williams <a href="http://www.patriotsonlineofficial.com/shop-by-players-chris-long-jersey-c-1_9.html">Chris Long Jersey</a> and Trovon Reed worked with the starters at cornerback when the Chargers were in base defense. However, when the team went with five defensive backs, Williams kicked inside to slot defender and Davis took his spot on the perimeter.
