Now, it sounds like Mathews has spent some time talking to his advisors. (Or maybe Vincent Jackson’s advisors.) Acee writes:
However, while he previously stated he had talked to his agent about his desire to be punctual, Mathews sounded today as he had been told a few things too.
"It's also a business," he said. "That's what I have to realize. ... I want to be on time. Hopefully that happens. If not, there's nothing I can do."
More noteworthy than Mathews' proclamation he wants to be on time is the fact that on July 9, third-round draft pick Donald Butler and fifth-rounder Cam Thomas agreed to contracts, meaning that the Chargers had signed all their picks except Mathews.
The Chargers do not have the best reputation for getting high-drafted rookies into camp on time. (LaDainian Tomlinson, Philip Rivers and Shawne Merriman all had holdouts.)
