Kevin O’Connell is taking a physical today and if/when he passes it, he will be the next Chargers training camp quarterback. Let’s see if he can last more than one practice before he retires or strains something.
Kyle Boller was signed a couple of days ago to be the training camp quarterback, but he decided that the Chargers were too good for him or something like that.
The job is a temporary assignment and that is why Billy Volek is not wearing Chargers colors right now. As soon as Clipboard Charlie Whitehurst gets back, he will be the backup quarterback for Philip Rivers. O’Connell will have a couple or preseason games to try and impress another team or even impress Norv Turner to be a 3rd quarterback.
