Los Angeles Chargers rookie safety Rayshawn Jenkins has some high expectations for his new team in 2017, as he was quoted speaking about the Super Bowl, per the team’s official website.
Jenkins said that he believes that he is “going to bring those skills to this team and help [the Chargers] compete for a Super Bowl.”
High expectations without questions, but the rookie’s confidence, and work ethic should bring excitement to Bolts fans.
Jenkins went on to clarify on the aforementioned skills he was alluding to, saying he enjoys that he will get to play in the box allowing him “to play hands-on with the big guys.”
Not one to sell himself short, Jenkins went on to say “I can run too, so if he [Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley] needs me in coverage, then I’m there.”
Jenkins will need all of the confidence he can muster as he will be competing for snaps in a talented and deep Los Angeles secondary this season.
