But he will be remembered for the fumbles this year – one that lost a game in Philadelphia and another the following week against Kansas City put him on the bench.
It isn't the fumbles that have the front office looking another way.
To hear a Chargers official tell it his demeanor off the field is the issue.
The official recounted two tales – contrasting the style of two different receivers.
The first is Eric Parker:
"Anything being discussed, Eric would take notes on and pay attention to. Very studious."
And on Reche Caldwell:
"He would come in with gold chains around his neck and put his feet up on the table during meetings. Who puts their feet on the table in the NFL?"
But the Bolts were also active in Mobile and spoke with receiver Sinorice Moss. A departure from their affinity of going tall, Moss is an agile receiver that uses his quickness to get open.
"I am in a tremendous comfort zone," Moss said. "But I don't want to be too comfortable if I want to stay on top. If you get too comfortable things could fall off for you."
It should be noted that Moss is also a talented punt returner, an area where Darren Sproles struggled last year.
More than anything, Moss would give them a true deep threat to stretch the field – as the current receiving corps does not have the speed to plow past defenders. The brother of Santana Moss definitely improved his stock during the week of practices and may have priced himself off the San Diego market but the team is high on the vertically challenged receiver as they see a dynamite playmaker that could add a new dimension to the offense that is sorely lacking.
