If it was up to Los Angeles Chargers safety

Derwin
James Haason

, his training camp debut would have happened before
Thursday.The Chargers decided to be cautious with their first-round draft pick
as he recovered from a minor hamstring strain and delayed James' first workout
in pads."I feel like I was ready Monday, but you know it's an ongoing process."
James said. "You never know with those soft tissue injuries, so I know they got
my back. They only want what's best."James sustained the injury one week prior
to the start of training camp while working out on his own, but there was no
hint the former Florida State standout was limited in any way. During a position
drill, James even joined his fellow defensive backs in an impromptu dance
party.In the team period, James was smooth and explosive in limited repetitions
to earn praise from head coach Anthony Lynn."He looks good," Lynn said. "He
looks good in his uniform. I mean, he's a good-looking safety, but it's just
good to see him back out there because he had such a good offseason."The
decision to be cautious with James was understandable after cornerback Jason
Verrett sustained a torn Achilles tendon during a conditioning test last week
before the start of training camp. Trevor Williams, a possible replacement for
Verrett, sustained an ankle injury on Tuesday, but Lynn said it was not a
high-ankle sprain and that Williams could return in a week.James acknowledged
some frustration at missing the start of his first training camp, but recognized
why the Chargers would not want to risk having the injury linger into the
regular season. Instead, he is focused on making the most of his time going
forward."They know what I can do," James said. "They drafted me in the first
round for a reason. Just really come out here and become a master of my
craft Youth

, learn my movements and be where I'm supposed
to be on the field."With James on the field, the Chargers can start to figure
out their safety pairings in earnest. Tre Boston started 15 games last season,
but was not re-signed in free agency. James was drafted No. 17 overall to fill
that vacancy and play next to incumbent Jahleel Addae.James is learning how to
play as both a free safety and a strong safety right now, but Addae said
differentiating between the two positions can be overblown in coordinator Gus
Bradley's 4-3 defense."Coach always says it best," Addae said. "We don't have no
strong safety, we don't have no free safety. We just have safeties. All of us
are interchangeable."James credited Addae and the other Chargers defensive backs
with helping him adjust quickly to the NFL."I sit right behind him in the
meeting room and I try to pick his brain, and he don't mind helping me," James
said. "He's a great guy. Adrian Phillips, he helps me. Our whole DB room and our
coaches that we have are great people to be around, and they only want what's
best."Still, James compared the learning process to feeding a baby."They give me
a little spoonful, and then I got to wait a little bit, and they give me some
more," James said.NOTES: The Chargers signed receiver Marcus Peterson and
cornerback Channing Stribling on Thursday after placing Verrett and tight end
Austin Roberts (torn ACL) on injured reserve. Through three weeks and one game
in the 2018 NFL season I think we know one thing thus far.The Los Angeles Rams
are really, really good.The Kansas City Chiefs offense is spectacular.After
