“I wasn’t a fan of it because Philip is my guy. It was sad seeing him run off the last time not knowing the future.”
Henry though is excited about how the offense might evolve, whether it is Tyrod Taylor or Justin Herbert at quarterback. He envisions more play action and a more mobile quarterback, which should help receivers buy time on routes. Henry said he texted Herbert shortly after he was taken as the sixth overall pick in last week’s NFL draft.
When Henry will get a chance to work with Taylor or Herbert though remains undetermined. Team complexes are shut down indefinitely and it remains increasingly likely the first workout for many squads won’t be until training camp.
The Chargers are among many teams doing virtual classroom meeting sessions for their offseason programs because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Henry has remained in Southern California and is doing some workouts while adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Henry said he is hopeful that he can start working out with Taylor soon in order to start building that camaraderie and chemistry, even if it means working further apart and having to shout instructions at times.
“I have pretty high confidence that we are going to have a season. We have four months until games are supposed to start to figure it out,” he said. “I’m open to playing games without fans for awhile and then hopefully things will get better.”
