Chargers Rookie WR Keenan Allen Wants To Force His Way Into The Starting Lineup
Rookie wide receiver Keenan Allen has a goal once Chargers players return to the field July 25 for training camp, Kevin Acee of UT San Diego reports.
"I want to be a starter," Allen said. "I don't want to watch. I want to be part of the moment. I don't want to watch it."
He became more comfortable with the offense's playbook and terminology — "I'm ready for anything," Allen said after minicamp — after reporting to organized training activities a week late because of Cal's academic calendar.
"He's done a nice job buying into what we're doing," coach Mike McCoy said this month. "It's a change for him. We're moving guys around, and the skill-position guys really need to know every position because you never know when Philip is going to check at the line of scrimmage. You have an idea where you're playing, but when it comes to a formation, Philip can audible something whenever he wants. ... You've got to know every position."
