The Chargers return to Jack Hammett Sports Complex in Costa Mesa, CA in a little over two weeks for the start of training camp.

While players have some down time before they prepare for the 2021 season as a team, that doesn’t mean the work stops, especially for rookies like cornerback Asante Samuel Jr.

Samuel Jr. was spotted working out with some of the other top first-year players, which included wide receivers Jaylen Waddle and Elijah Moore and cornerback Patrick Surtain Jr.

Drafted in the second round, Samuel Jr. heads into camp looking to lock up the other outside cornerback spot opposite Michael Davis. He will be competing with Brandon Facyson, who impressed in spring practices.

At Florida State, Samuel Jr. stymied top receivers on a weekly basis, posting 97 tackles, 29 passes defensed and four interceptions over 31 games.

Now, Samuel Jr. is eager to carry over his quickness, instincts and ball skills to the pro level in hopes of supplying a dominant force to what could be one of the better secondaries in the league.
