Tyrell Williams should get plenty of opportunities and targets as San Diego’s No. 3 receiver.
The Chargers ran three-receiver sets 73 percent of the time in 2015 -- No. 7 in the NFL.
With the return of Ken Whisenhunt as the team’s offensive coordinator, San Diego probably won’t be in three-wide that often. However, Williams should also be on the field at times when the Chargers go with just two receivers.
The second-year pro also has developed a good rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers. Williams finished with seven catches for 83 yards during preseason play, so the Chargers were trying to get him the football.
We've been hearing Williams' name a lot in Chargers news this summer, even before Stevie Johnson went down for the year. Williams is a unique player. At 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, Williams has the short-area quickness and explosive burst of a smaller guy, yet can win contested catches and bring down balls in the middle of the field as a bigger target, the story said. It added that he could be a vertical deep threat.
