The passes were mostly short, many on play-action rollouts.
And that was fine with Jared Goff.
“Taking what they give us,” Goff said. “They were playing their base defense, and with what they play, a lot of underneath stuff was open.
“So if it’s there, just keep taking it.”
Goff, the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft, took another small step toward establishing himself as a capable starter for first-year coach Sean McVay.
On a day when there was no live tackling, Goff looked comfortable — if not completely accurate — from the shotgun formation and also from under center.
He passed for several short touchdowns and avoided interceptions during red-zone and seven-on-seven drills throughout the two-plus hour workout. His one misstep: allowing Chargers’ defensive end Joey Bosa to strip the ball while passing in a red-zone drill.
But Goff completed eight of 10 passes against the Chargers’ No. 1 defense during the two-minute portion, one of the incomplete passes coming on a third-and-three play from the eight-yard line.
“I thought he settled in,” McVay said. “I thought he did a nice job in the two-minute drill taking completions, being smart with the football.”
