Chase DanielEaston Stick Los Angeles Chargers/Quarterback Justin Herbert, K. J. Costello or Logan Woodside could be next in line to start for the Bolts.
Daniel began his college career at Missouri before transferring to Oklahoma State. He played one season there before heading to Foxboro to play for Bill Belichick and the Patriots. After three seasons with New England, he joined the Rams on a two-year deal worth $4 million dollars. In 2019, he threw for 2,097 yards with 14 touchdowns against eight interceptions.
He's been praised for his work ethic and leadership skills during his time in Los Angeles. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn says he wants to get the ball into Daniel's hands as much as possible this season because of his experience running the no-huddle offense.
Here's what else we know about Chase Daniel: He grew up in Brandywine, Maryland and attended Bryan Stevenson High School. The 6'3", 220-pounder ran for 1,979 yards and 26 touchdowns while throwing for 3,080 yards and 21 scores as a senior. He ended up playing four years at Oklahoma State, starting 39 games over that span.
Goff, Jared Boyle, Tim Blough, David Quarterbacks/Detroit Lions.
The Lions have three quarterbacks on their roster, but only two will make the final cut to start in 2015. The other man was given a chance to win the job this past offseason when Matthew Stafford went down with a leg injury and he didn't disappoint. In fact, he threw for over 1,000 yards while completing 67 percent of his passes before being sidelined by an ankle injury himself. He'll be back next year ready to take on the challenge at the top of the depth chart.
Here's who they are: TJ Yeldon had a terrific rookie season and showed great promise as a runner and receiver. However, he did suffer a torn meniscus in his knee early in the 2015 season and was lost for the year. In fact, he wasn't expected to play again this season until late in the year after returning from his injury. But due to the lack of quality options at running back, the team decided to give him another shot on the field and he responded with 730 yards and five touchdowns.
Herbert, Justin Rivers and Tomlinson are all vying for the job. Herbert is considered the front-runner. He started 15 games last season and threw for 3,840 yards with 28 touchdowns vs. 13 interceptions.
Rivers played only three games last season before suffering a torn ACL. He was expected to be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL when he went down. The team drafted Justin Thomas in the second round of this year's draft with hopes of having him develop into a long-term solution at the position. Thomas played just one game as a rookie due to injury and didn't appear likely to beat out Rivers' son for the job in 2019. However, the younger Rivers did play well after being promoted to the starting lineup late in the season. He had 2,004 passing yards with 12 touchdowns vs. six interceptions in seven games started.
Tomlinson spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Indianapolis Colts. The Chargers signed him away from Indy as a free agent this offseason. He won the backup job over Tyler Hornsey during training camp and appeared in two games last season before injuring his ankle.
Justin Herbert, whom the Chargers selected with the sixth overall selection in 2020 out of Oregon, is the clear heir apparent. He will lead the Chargers into a new stadium when they join the Rams in SoFi Stadium. The team also drafted offensive tackle Michael Clark from Ohio State in the third round and running back Justin McMillan from Penn State in the seventh.
Los Angeles has not had a winning season since 2002 and has not made the playoffs since 2003, but it does have two first-round picks in 2020 and one second-rounder. Its best draft pick was quarterback Philip Rivers, who was taken with the top selection in 2004. Other notable players include defensive ends Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, cornerback Jason Verrett and safety Adrian Phillips.
The Bolts went to the playoffs in each of Rivers' nine seasons and made the postseason six times overall. They won three division titles during that span. However, they've only finished above.500 once since 2007 and haven't been above 10th in the conference standings.
In 2017, Rivers threw for 4,057 yards while completing 62 percent of his passes. He also led the league in interceptions with 51. After Rivers, only four other quarterbacks had more than 30 pass attempts. The Chargers lost their final eight games that year, including five straight at home, and fired head coach Anthony Lynn after the season ended.
Howell, Sam Maye, Drake Criswell, Jacolby Jefferson Boaz Russell Tabor, quarterback for the North Carolina Tar Heels. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Howell was named the starter after a strong spring practice. He started 11 games in 2015 and 2014. The Jacksonville, Florida, native completed 57.1 percent of his passes for 2,894 yards with 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
He graduated from North Carolina in three years with a bachelor's degree in social science. The son of Jeff and Nancy Howell, he was born on January 4, 1990. He has two siblings: brother Jordan and sister Taylor.
Howell began his college career at West Virginia but dropped out before playing a game due to mental issues. He then transferred to North Carolina where he sat out one season before becoming the full-time starter in 2013. His best year so far came in 2015 when he threw for 2,894 yards with 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He enters 2016 as the favorite to start at quarterback for the Tar Heels.
Sam Maye is the running backs coach for the North Carolina Tar Heels and has been since 2016. Before that, he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Duke University from 2012 to 2016.

Derek Carr's name is Derek Carr. He was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2014 after playing college football at California. The Raiders traded up in the first round to select him. He's one of only three quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for over 4,000 yards while starting at least 14 games in a season (the other two are Peyton Manning and Tom Brady).
Carr was the league's highest-paid player before he got hurt in 2016. When he returned for the 2017 season, he lost his job to rookie quarterback Derek Herbert. In 2018, they gave it back to Carr again. He's still with the team as we go into 2019.
Besides being able to play quarterback, he's also been praised for his work ethic and leadership skills. After each game, the coach says what kind of performance they gave their quarterback - whether it was good or bad - and that helps them get better. Also, the fact that he's from Southern California means that there's always going to be pride involved when they play against opponents from the West Coast.
He's been named to several all-star teams during his career, including two first-team selections.
