Coaches believe Ladarius Green can be 'an impact player'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers coaches believe tight end Ladarius Green "has the size, speed, reach and athleticism to be an impact player, especially if he gets the right matchups," reports Bleacher Report's Dan Pompei. Green "showed some flashes" in minicamp, and the team will involve the third-year pro more this season, the report said.

Green (6-6, 240) caught 17 passes for 376 yards and three touchdowns playing behind Antonio Gates last year.

While Gates is away, Ladarius Green gets first-team reps
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

With Chargers All Pro tight end Antonio Gates tending to a personal matter and missing minicamp this week, third-year tight end Ladarius Green is getting reps with the first-team offense. According to the Union-Tribune of San Diego, it's working out well for Green, who scored a 15-yard touchdown during two-minute drills on Tuesday

McCoy regrets not using Ladarius Green more in 2013
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that he wished he used tight end Ladarius Green more in 2013.

Green finished his second year with 17 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns, but the majority of that production came during the final seven games of the year.

"What happened with him last year he made the most of his opportunities," McCoy said. "Early in the year, they were limited. As time went along, and as an offense, you always evolve to what your players do best. Being together for the first time, there were some things we were still learning about our team. It takes time. And Ladarius made the most of his opportunities. When he was in at the right time, he was continuing to make plays. You wish you would have done that a little earlier."

McCoy said he plans to use Green in tandem with Antonio Gates again in 2014.

GM: Ladarius Green 'definitely has a role moving forward'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco wasn't shy about his excitement for tight end Ladarius Green. Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, Telesco was asked about both Green and Antonio Gates and how they fit in with the offense going forward and Telesco focused mainly on Green. 

"They are both two big parts of our offense," Telesco said. "Ladarius does give us some of that big play ability. With that long stride, it's deceiving how fast he really is. He can run away from defensive backs and has made some big plays for us this year. ... He definitely has a role moving forward and obviously, we know what Antonio brings to us. We need both those guys."

Green finished with 17 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns. Fifteen of his 17 catches were good for either a first down or a touchdown.

Chargers tight ends barely a factor
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught two passes for 10 yards in the playoff loss at Denver. He was targeted four times.

Fellow tight end Ladarius Green caught two of his three targets for 7 yards, dropping a perfect throw that would have converted a key third down.

Gates, 33, is scheduled to return in 2014 at a $5 million base salary, while Green is slated to earn $570,000.
