10 Minutes With… Antoine Cason

The 25-year-old cornerback for the Chargers checks in after practice, mid-season


Antoine Cason led the Chargers with four interceptions and 11 passes defended last year, his first season as a starter. Cason also averaged 16.5 yards as a punt returner. The 6-foot-1-inch, 195-pounder hopes to continue stepping up his game.

Who has been the most difficult quarterback to stop?

In my eyes, I don’t play the quarterback. So, that’s kind of hard. I’ve faced Tom Brady, Brett Favre … Those quarterbacks are definitely good and they know how to find guys to throw the ball to.

Ever been gun-shy after being beaten on a touchdown?

I don’t think about that. You look at the mistakes you make and you just work on not doing the same mistakes again.

More and more, the NFL is penalizing defensive players for leading with the helmet or hitting opponents in the head. Is this changing how you target ball carriers?

It gets annoying. But there’s nothing I can do about it except adapt. I just go out and play hard. If something like that happens, I’m not intending for it to happen.

What are your expectations for the rest of this season?

I’m here to play as hard as I can and add to that winning way.

What do you do for fun?

Bowling is one of my favorite things to do. I score between 185 and 200. When we were growing up in Long Beach, bowling was pretty cheap on Friday nights. We weren’t 18 or 21, so we would go and bowl all night
