The clock has struck midnight and our cornerback situation is overturned and overturning. Quentin Jammer is on the market, no deals have been made just yet. At the end of this free agency extravaganza we could possibly see him without a team. If that is the case, could we bring Jammer back?
Quentin Jammer, once considered a “red chip” player has upheld the cornerback position for the San Diego Chargers for 11 years and only missed four games during that span. Believe it or not, based on ‘Pro-Football Reference’ Jammers value was tied for highest in his career which also could have very well landed him in his first pro-bowl. In the 2012 season, Jammer made his first interception touchdown and first fumble returned for a touchdown. Remarkable considering he’s never done that in his NFL career! Oddly enough, 2011 was marked his worst season since his rookie year. Hopefully, for his sake that means his slump was temporary and over. If he returns, he could potentially take over for the strong safety position instead.
If this long-time Chargers cornerback is still available after all teams are done with their free agent pick-ups there’s an option to re-sign familiarity. I doubt Tom Telesco will sign him since he plans to overhaul the team, but if he does, Jammer will likely become a safety. Tommy ultimately wants to re-build this team therefore, bringing back a broke piece is highly unlikely.
