Zo talked with new safety Steve Gregory, who is settling in nicely after spending the first seven-years of his career in San Diego.
“It’s not too bad. Obviously there are different schemes, terminology; different ways of playing certain defense,” Gregory told Gresh & Zo. “It’s just a matter of coming out here and understanding what they’re trying to do on the field. We’re working hard at it, and it’s going well.”

“Everything has its own challenge. We do everything at a high level, we’re working hard and we go out hard every day,” said Gregory. “We put the work in on the field and that’s how we get to be a better football team.”
Gregory said the defense is working on learning where each player lines up on the field for every play — a key part of training camp. The safety said he loves to play to contact, but it’s his versatility that will most help the team.
“I can go out and learn the defense, be a leader on the field, get guys lined the guys up, make the checks, do things like that,” said Gregory, who recorded 67 tackles for the Chargers last season. “There is always room to improve. There are always things to get better with your technique – things that you’re doing on the field between the whistles. That’s what we’re focused on right now; getting better, learning the scheme and getting guys lined up and playing hard, tough football.”
