While they are a Los Angeles team in name, the Chargers have yet to leave San Diego.

The Chargers continue to hold their offseason workouts at Chargers Park in San Diego. It makes for an awkward situation for all parties involved, but general manager Tom Telesco won’t accept it as an excuse for poor results.

“No. 1 you embrace it – I think that’s the biggest thing,” Telesco said on The Mighty 1090 AM, according to ESPN’s Eric D. Williams. “There’s no excuses, no explanations. You just get your work done.”

The Chargers will begin their relocation to L.A. in the summer and into the fall, but for the time being, their focus is on OTAs and training camp.

“For us on the football side right now, it’s been business as usual,” Telesco said.

“It’s a new beginning. It’s a new chapter for everybody in this business, both professionally and personally. But we have a pretty strong group of guys. Last year was a difficult year on the field with the win-loss record, but I was proud of the players as far as how they handled last year mentally. I think we have a pretty strong-minded group, and we’ll be able to handle the move up there.”

After 57 seasons in San Diego, the Chargers will play the 2017 campaign at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. while their next home in Inglewood is under construction.
