Coming off last year’s lockout, Chargers RB Ryan Mathews took a ton of criticism for an apparent lack of conditioning in the offseason. How did the season turn out for No.24 last year? Mathews simply rushed for 1,091 yards on 222 carries and notched 6 touchdowns on his way to a Pro Bowl appearance.
The former Fresno State running back understood all of the criticism he received in training camp last season and is on a mission this August to prove everyone wrong about his offseason preparation.
“Expectations are real high. I have basically been training. My trainer Jeff has been putting me through some good workouts and I’ve had excellent OTA’s and a real good mini camp and I am looking forward to this upcoming season. Camp starts Wednesday. I can’t wait. It is going to be real fun.”
