OLB English Not Metting The Chargers Expectations

PFW reports that Chargers former first round pick Larry English isn’t meeting the expectations that the team had set for him.

Chargers OLB Larry English was inactive in Week One due to poor play in practice, the latest in a trend of disappointments from the 2009 first-round pick. According to a team insider, the Chargers were “dreaming” that English would win the LOLB job, as he has the potential to be a superior all-around player to Travis LaBoy, who is primarily just a pass rusher. However, English has not been able to live up to that potential, so a host of other players, especially veterans LaBoy and Antwan Barnes, will see most of the playing time across from Shaun Phillips.
