Chargers News: Anthony Lynn Spoke About Having Three QBs On The Roster and Colin Kaepernick

The Los Angeles Chargers currently have three quarterbacks on their roster. Tyrod Taylor, Justin Herbert, and Easton Stick. If these three remain as the quarterbacks, Taylor will be the starter, Herbert will be the second-string QB, and Stick will be the third-string QB.

Here’s what LA coach Anthony Lynn had to say

“It would be crazy to not have him on your workout list. I haven’t spoken with Colin, not sure where he’s at as far in his career, what he wants to do, but Colin definitely fits the style of quarterback for the system that we’re going to be running. I’m very confident and happy with the three quarterbacks that I have, but you can never have too many people waiting on the runway.”

If the Chargers sign Kaepernick, that will give Justin Herbert a true redshirt year. Although Tyrod Taylor may begin the season as the starter, I have no doubt that Kaepernick will get his chance, and when he does, he will prove himself to all the doubters.

Not only would Kaepernick help the Chargers win games, but he will also pack the stadium. A team must give Kaepernick an opportunity to prove himself, and what better team than the Chargers? They have a great defense led by Derwin James, Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram, and Chris Harris Jr. The Last time Kaepernick played on a team with a great defense, they reached the Super Bowl.

The Chargers need a mobile QB, and although Tyrod and Herbert are mobile QB’s, neither of them have Super Bowl experience, and Taylor has little to no playoff experience. Giving Kaepernick players such as Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Hunter Henry, he would be in the perfect position to succeed. Not to mention, the Chargers also have Justin Jackson, who stepped up when Gordon and Ekeler were injured.

The Chargers will likely give Kaepernick a workout sometime this Summer, and if they end up signing Kaepernick, this will be a win-win for Kaepernick, the Chargers, and the NFL. By signing Kaepernick, the Chargers will improve their Super Bowl chances, and Roger Goodell’s apology will have meaning to it because it was backed up with action, not just words.
