Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Chris McCain is excited about the team bringing in defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.
“Now that Gus is here, I see how Gus likes aggressive, big guys with speed,” via the Chargers’ official website. “That’s me. So, I think this fits what I can do.”
McCain, who has not had much success in his first three seasons out of Cal Berkeley, has joined Los Angeles this season as his third team in just four years.
In addition, he has only played in 20 out of the 48 possible games he could have played in three seasons, however, McCain doesn’t think that is a true representation.
He is willing to “hustle every play. No matter how tired [he will] get” and will “play aggressively full speed and all out,” which should put him on the coaching staff’s good side.
In regards to his play, McCain says he has “long limbs” and is “pretty fast.” With his athleticism, he can “threaten from the end,” but can also “get you off-balance and come inside… to get pressure and affect the quarterback.”
If his scouting report on himself is true, then the Chargers are going have an impact player at a position of need that can help turn around the No. 29 ranked scoring defense from 2016.
