Denver Broncos Sign Former Chargers CB Quentin Jammer

The Denver Broncos now have a couple of former San Diego Chargers on their roster. Today they have signed former Chargers CB Quentin Jammer. Jammer sounded like he wanted to be back in San Diego, but it didn’t seem like the Chargers were interested in bringing him back.

Jammer would have been a solid veteran signing for the Bolts, but now he will be on the “good side”.

The Broncos needed help in the secondary and brought in the vet. I am not worried about seeing Jammer in the same division. Jammer’s best days are behind him and the Chargers could throw deep on him all day long. It’s not like he can catch anyway.

      Hahaha!!! Jammer is so old, his first contract was written in Sanskrit!!!

      • tubbs45

        Here is a polaroid of it being made!

        • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

          Yes! Polaroid… hahahaha!

    Because we are going to toast that fucker all day long :)

          I think that’s famous nose tackle Joe “the soda stand” McGillicutty in the middle.. and the “Blankenship Award” winning running back Mickey “the Lariat” O’Houlahan on the right! They are an ostentatious group of scallywags, I tell ya!!!

  • PakMaN

    Wow. Fuck him

    • Stefanie Smith

      F him? Why? He should have no job because Chargers would not offer him anything?

      • PakMaN

        Look at urlacher, he would rather retire than join a division rival. But not the chargers, 4 ex charger players on their roster!

    • Pels04

      Look at it this way. It’s not like he left his wife for her sister. It’s more like his wife left him and he got with her sister. Stings but can’t blame the guy

      • IrishCarBomb

        This is the best metaphor/comment of the thread. On my moral compass the sister is always off limits, and so are our divisional rivals. I have respect for him, but I would never want to see him, Phillips, (or anyone else who went to a divisional rival) retire a Charger. LT is differentiated because he did not go to a rival, plain and simple. I just think the word “rival” means different things to us individually on this board. Thanks for the years and memories Jammer/Phillips, but I hope they both break a leg out there this year.

  • Rob Base

    BAHAHAHA that’s hilarious enjoy Donkeys!

  • Rob Base

    How many ex Bolts are on the Donkeys roster now?

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Vasquez, jammer, Phillips, Hester, and I may be missing another one?

      • Pels04

        Don’t forget Welker!

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Game 10 is going to be D-R-A-M-A!!! I am so happy about this. No more strong safety talk! Nice!

    • JoseSD

      I want to see URFA Jaleel Adeeah get a shot at SS

    Has anybody else noticed how old the Broncos are becoming?

    • FitzWilly

      No idea what you’re talking about , Sonny :)

      • tubbs45

        Even the Broncos Barrel dude is using a walker. He has to be cut out of his Barrel these days!!!

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Him and Champ Bailey are heading up the Shriner’s parade this year,.in Denver!

        • tubbs45

          Totally awesome!!!

    • JoseSD

      They’re going all in this year, the Broncos live and die with Peyton Manning, one big hit and the franchise is back to obscurity for at least 3 years

      • Patoriku

        I predict a huge fall off for Manning. He exceeded and exerted himself solely through sheer mental will. He is spent. He is old. I love Manning because he is an amazing person and player, but he is done. Just a prediction.

  • JoseSD

    This may sound harsh but I hope Philips and Jammer have the same result with the Broncos as Jamal Williams, lackluster play and then fade into retirement after one year

    • Stefanie Smith

      Why would you say that? Chargers offered Jammer nothing. He gave a lot to San Diego with his foundation and various other charities. Yeah, that was harsh, He spent his entire career here and we could offer him nothing? That is embarrassing.

      • JoseSD

        You always say that, charity work is great and he’s a good person for starting that charter school and building a football field there for underprivileged youth but what does that have to do with winning games. Yeah let’s sign that guy cause he has a foundation, charities don’t win games

        • Stefanie Smith

          Because the team, i.e. the Chargers is part of this community. People, San Diego citizens became attached to Jammer and the Chargers. If you don’t see the value in that, then I guess there is nothing to say.

          And we didn’t sign the guy. So you don’t have to worry. I differ from you. I think the players have value in the community. Do you think citizens will vote in a new stadium when they don’t even know anyone on the team?

          • JoseSD

            Of course ill miss jammer he was a physical corner that wasn’t afraid to tackle when playing against the run, though he had hands of stone at times he was one of my favorite. However his coverage skills were in decline and he was getting old and slow and was victimized by speedy wideouts. Of course everyone will still love him the same way they love LT, Fouts, Seau and lots of former players, but I won’t wish him well playing with a division rival and again this whole he’s part of the communitytthing you always bring up has nothing to do with winning footballgames.

          • Stefanie Smith

            When the players are members of the community, we also have a much better chance of swaying the naysayers to get the stadium built. Will also make it more difficult when the citizens don’t even know these jamokes we have on the team now.

          • JoseSD

            The only thing that sways voters is wins I would vote for a new stadium whether they’re super bowl champs or just went 0-16, you know what helped drive the voters to build Petco Park? the padres world series appearance in 98, the average voter that isn’t a sports fan would be more likely to approve a stadium if there was good vibes in the city from a winning team

  • Stefanie Smith

    Jammer was part of the Charger family for a long time. The New Kids came to town and all of a sudden we tossed him out like somebody’s trash. That is wrong. Jammer was part of the image of the Chargers. Kids loved him. Nice. This is what you do to your vets. No Ray Lewis exit for any of our vets. Oh yeah, we have to make room for strangers who have no loyalty to either the Chargers or SD.

    • Alter Ego

      Nice Stephanie. I concur with your sentiments.

    • JoseSD

      Not every player can go out winning the super bowl in their final year, and you can’t compare the two. Ray Lewis was drafted the first year of the Ravens existence hed been the one and only face of their franchise not to mention he won 2 super bowls and was a pro bowler almost every year and had been an all-pro many times whereas jammer wasn’t a pro bowler and at times wasn’t the best CB on the team

      • Stefanie Smith

        The comparison to Ray Lewis was not about the Superbowl. They didn’t throw him out.. when they could have. Ray had been slowing down. Heck, they had Ray Lewis Day when he retired. Nope, can’t do something like that in San Diego. Just throw them out. Jammer is going to retire–probably next year. What difference would it have made to let him stick around for another year? It could not have hurt.. It’s not like we are replacing the vets with top caliber talent.

        • JoseSD

          Unlike jammer Lewis’s contract didn’t run out, and even though he slowed down he was very effective not to mention he was the team leader. Something that can’t be said about Jammer. And the difference of bringing Jammer on for another year is slowing the development of guys like Ghilchrist, Wright, Stuckey and Brandon Taylor. we need to see what we’ve got they can’t grow on the bench its their time now to step up

    • Cgoodness13

      We didn’t throw him out, we let his contract run out

      • Stefanie Smith

        Yes, and that is basically what happened when we didn’t re-sign him. Get lost. Nothing. We could have offered him something. He is no worse than some of the strangers we are picking up during the off season. Not like we are signing some top caliber people.

        And yes, we threw him out… when we didn’t even make him any kind of offer. Nada. Not even the minimum.

    • Pels04

      Ray Lewis chose to retire and could’ve kept playing. Jammer couldve retired a Charger. He chose not to. I dont see how that is on the organization. Spend money on a player that they don’t think is worth it, just because he’s been there a long time? I get it from a fan perspective but I have to give it to TT for sticking with his decisions.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Is this a guy thing? Where you don’t really give a rat’s rear end about the player–just the game? Didn’t you guys become attached to any of the Charger players that are getting thrown out?

    • veazy

      Darren Sproles is still my favorite Charger. I want Goodman cut for acting like a shitbag towards him last season.

      • Stefanie Smith

        I could relate to that. Okay. lol I loved Sproles.

      • MC Boltman

        I think a lot fans would agree here…Sproles is soooo unique – you can´t.. u just simply can´t replace that guy…great speed, great in pass blocking, great moves and vision, great pass catcher, great on kick returns…when LT and PR and the O-Line struggled, who was there so save the Chargers ass? ->SPROLES! In the end, all I wanted to say is: I´m a die-hard #43 fan too :)

    • Jonah Lee

      Even though Shaun Phillips will be on the other side twice a year I’ll still have mad respect for him, he’ll always be a Charger! Sproles, still rooting for the lighting bug!

    • tubbs45

      The anger is not a guy thing. It is one of the 5 stages of mourning, some fans just skip past the Isolation/Denial stage and go right to anger. I dont think it is mourning the loss of the player, but coming to grips with the fact that this team has had so much potential. But it is the dawning of a new age, new regime, and new players. Shit, I still love LT and he was a damn Jet… I’d still rather they go to Denver over the Raiders, but it is a very SMALL margin.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Say whatever you want. But Denver picking up all our Chargers makes us look foolish, and will give NFL Network more to talk about. Denver is giving the Chargers a serious mind screw picking up our guys. Laugh and say they are no good and over the hill. Guess Denver doesn’t think so.

    • NativeSanDiegan

      Aloha Stephanie
      You’d be hard-pressed to find me badmouthing one of our own who signs elsewhere after we haven’t offered him a contract unless he was, and still is lousy (see Clary). I probably wouldn’t badmouth even him. He plays his hardest and has good character; he’s just a lousy OT & probably G. It’s not his fault if AJ overpaid him. Heck, I’d take the money & try my hardest too. I’ve always liked Shaun P too; he even seemed to have improved against the run IMO. Vasquez wanted out and was given a great contract (for him). Can’t blame him for that. Sproles was given a big contract and VJ wasn’t retained because of AJ’s stubborn ego. Shaun probably had PTSD from AJ so he thought we were still the bad guys, haha. I hear you though. Jammer always tried and was a great tackler, but he had no ball skills and no hands, and would probably get turned around trying to walk a straight line for a sobriety test. I wish him well in his life but not worried about playing against him.

  • Dion Chin

    I love that the Bronco’s are picking up our leftovers. Ya no doubt I got love for Jammer but if you’re gonna sell out and sign with our division rivals, you can beat it. Plus this is awesome, will make the Chargers/Broncos games this year even more exciting to watch.

    • Stefanie Smith

      Dion: That is the Charger way–that is what we do…pick up leftovers also. That is how it works in the NFL.

      • Dion Chin

        Huh? When have we ever picked up leftovers (signed a player) from our division rivals, the Denver Broncos? You need to cool off your hard on for Jammer. Face the facts, he’s old, washed up, and sold out.

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    And then there was one…. Clary…..

    • NativeSanDiegan

      Hey Pt,
      I need a Lightening BOLT from you and Ernie and other rational Bolts fans. In previous post about questions about Fluker, the Joker guy keeps insisting that Clary is at least a middle of the road RT. Giving me a headache. Could use a Bolt-hand up. Wanted to bring the old post to your attention. Where’s Ernie with his promised article on Clary?

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        oh it will be here….i still hate me some clary!!!!!! will get back to that fluker article in a sec and see what the commotion is about

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Hahahaha… I feel ya NativeSD… I actually like Paul, and we have gone rounds about Clary a couple of times already. His arguments are valid too. In the end, we all have points, and guesses, and ideas of how things should be done… or, how things will play out. I personally get the feeling Clary will stick around… I just don’t agree with it. When the regular season starts.. if Clary is still here… I really hope he plays well, and I will root for him to play well, just like the other players. That’s what I do as a Charger fan! I pray that he can shed the rep of being “barely average” that he has bulit for himself. When you look at the money he is making, being average is a slap in the face to players who are playing far better, but for much less money.

        • NativeSanDiegan

          It does seem we are giving Clary every possible chance to be a successful G. I’m sure his work ethic and attitude are appreciated by new regime. He might be OK for depth/backup, but not starting. His pass protection just plain sucks. Can’t get visions of him being pushed back into PR out of my head. How can he hope to block a pass-rushing DT? But you’re right about supporting our team. Like TT said, we can’t upgrade every position in one year and we can’t be saddled with too much dead $.

  • RussinSactown

    We know Jammer can be beaten. His age can be exploited. And I think in a foot race DX or Brown will toast him. So he signed in Denver. Maybe he will give us bulletin board fodder and say he’s on the good side like Phillips.

    • FitzWilly

      Can’t spell Toast and Jam without Jammer :)

      • FitzWilly

        or Burnt Toast

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          ha

  • Patoriku

    Not sweating this. Will miss Jammer, but I’m thinking Mike McCoy is greater than Phillips/Vazquez/Jammer/(and Hester last year).

  • Pels04

    This better not be another 1 year 1 million dollar contract. Guess we will have to wait and see which organization made the better decisions

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i bet it is pretty cheap

  • MC Boltman

    You know whats really funny? When we signed Dwight Freeney I could read a tweet from a Broncos fan, that the Chargers are dumb, because we should get younger, not older … ROTFLMAO

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      hahahaha… they have no idea

  • FitzWilly

    “Great team. Great coaches,” Jammer said when asked why he signed with the Broncos, according to the team’s official website. “I’m looking forward to winning a lot of football games.”

    LMAO
    Good Luck in The Senior Bowl :)

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      at least he didnt throw any shots… wouldnt expect anything less from Jam

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Agreed… I would have been disappointed if he pulled what Phillips did. Hope he keeps it that way = )

  • Gunnar Martin

    He shoulda retired.

    Now we’re just gonna pick on him all day when we play Denver this year. I think we all know that he’s not capable of keeping up to NFL receivers anymore. So, I guess this isn’t such a bad thing after all…

  • Stefanie Smith

    Are all of you going to ridicule Antonio when they boot him out with nothing? It’s sad to see Jammer gone and people like Meachem and Royal still here. They may be on the Chargers’ team but they will NEVER be Chargers.

    • Pels04

      Im sure most of wouldve liked to have him back as veteran depth if it was a cheap deal. I love CHARGERS, the organization and support the players in this organization. I dont blame him for taking a paycheck at all but im not going to root for the guy. He signed with the enemy, therefore he is an enemy. Do i wish it couldve played out differently? For sure (especially if its a deal like sp95)

      • Stefanie Smith

        ok. I know. It drove a knife in my heart seeing Tolbert on the Panthers. And VJAX about killed me.

        • Pels04

          I probably shouldve used the word “rival” instead of enemy. If its an ex-charger i really like i will root for the player as long as they didnt sign with a rival. Vjax is an excellent example. Dont tell anyone but every now and then i watch a TB game just to see good ol #83 in action!

  • Bill Nichols

    bunch of damn idiots… why ya’ll signing all of our trash?? Can’t wait for the beat down.. Bolt up baby!!

  • brandon

    you know i love the broncos picking up all the old chargers from the defense. This play sums up why http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgygDxyr29g

      Read that top youtube comment, the 4th and Lombardi is what this play is now called. smh…..

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      UGH
