San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews told XTRA Sports 1360 in San Diego with Chris & Ben (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) that he’s in better shape heading into training camp this year, then he was last season.

“Huge, huge difference. I’m in way better shape this time than I was last year and I just feel good about myself. I really do. I feel real confident and like I said my trainer Jeff has been helping me on the little things with ball security and working my way through tight spaces and explosion and stuff, so it’s going to be a good deal and it’s going to be real fun.”

Mathews has to come this year and really prove that he can a much more consistent threat out of the back field for the Chargers.
