About 90%

The Chargers number two receiver, Reche Caldwell, is well on his way for a full recovery from a torn ACL he acquired in game 6 against the Falcons last season. Caldwell has reportedly said that he feels about 90 percent and his work ethic and performance this off-season have shown the team he is ready to play again. Caldwell had a promising start last season; he had 30 plus receptions with 300 plus yards and 3 touchdowns in 5 games. His comeback this season will bolster the receiver position.

Not a Team Player

What is the make up of a professional athlete?

Dedication, team work, a good work ethic, and self discipline; these are just few thing that come to mind when thinking of the make-up of a professional athlete. Those intangibles are something drafted rookie Shawne Merriman will have to learn. While he is out of mini-camps to avoid getting hurt, his teammates are breaking their back to improve themselves for their team.

Ben Leber is the linebacker expected to be replace by Merriman. Even though Leber is hurt he still attends practice everyday. Even though Leber will loose his spot, he will still attend practice every day. Merriman could learn something from him.
