Who was the other Vincent guy Juan…

Vincent Brown is having a great camp according to Norv Turner: “He’s had a great offseason, he’s in the middle of having an outstanding training camp, and he obviously is a playmaker.”

The Chargers really want Robert Meachem to be the guy that fits what they want to do, but his rapport with Rivers hasn’t gelled yet.

Brown is a player on the rise that can still be had late in drafts.
