Los Angeles Chargers guard Matt Slauson thinks that he will be a “bully” and a “bouncer” after making the switch from center to the guard position this offseason, via Fox Sports radio’s Hardwick and Richards.
Even though it is a new position, Slauson already feels “comfortable” and is “building great chemistry” with Chargers tackle Russell Okung.
Slauson is a team player and believes the team can “move [him] wherever they want,” but he is definitely “more comfortable now” at guard because it is his “true” spot.
The guard position also has less cerebral responsibilities giving the opportunity for Slauson to be “really aggressive.”
Also, the former center still graded out as one of the best in the league, via Pro Football Focus, with a player grade of 81.2.
If that was a less comfortable Slauson, then it is going to be a treat to see the more aggressive player who is finally playing in his natural position this fall.
