Billy Volek Could Get Starting Opportunity in Carolina

The San Diego Charegrs Backup QB Billy Volek is a free agent at the end of the season and he may be looking to get an opportunity to be the starting quarterback for some team. With Philip Rivers entrenched as the starting QB in San Diego, he will not have that opportunity with the Chargers as long as Philip is healthy, so he may be looking to find a new location.

The Carolina Panthers would be an interesting location for Volek to look at with the arrival of former Chargers’ coaches Ron Rivera and Rob Chudzinski as the new head coach and new offensive coordinator.

According to Steve Reed, Carolina Panthers’ writer, Volek could be an option for the Panthers. Volek would get the opportunity to start and also could mentor young QB Jimmy Clausen.

    Good for Billy. I would hate to see him go cuz he’s a dependable backup, but, it would be good to see him get a shot to start somewhere. ahe deserves a chance, and I think he’d do well. Any thoughts on who the new backup would be? Maybe Brady Quinn could be lured away from Denver, seeing as how he really didn’t get a fair chance there. Good luck Billy.

      yea… it would be nice to see billy get a chance out somewhere else.

      i could see the chargers taking a chance on Alex Smith from the 9ers since he worked with norv turner before and has his best success under turner. Not sure how much smith would cost though
