The Los Angeles Chargers probably have found their future quarterback as they acquired quarterback Cardale Jones from the Buffalo Bills for a 7th round draft pick.
Over the years the Chargers have not really focused on who will be the successor to Philip Rivers after he retires and now they are likely looking at the situation. Cardale Jones, 24, is a development piece and is a starting point for the Chargers in their looks for potential quarterbacks who can take the throne as Chargers starting quarterback in the coming years.
The Chargers currently hold Kellen Clemens and former Arizona State quarterback Mike Bercovici as backups to Rivers and adding Jones into the mix will put pressure on Clemens and Berco in Chargers camp. Cardale Jones will regroup with former offensive coordinator and now Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn.
