The San Diego Chargers have been looking for someone to stretch the field in the passing game for some time. Malcom Floyd has been the biggest threat on the roster, but the presence of Jacoby Jones will bring an additional threat over the top. The Chargers have a lot of players that can catch the passes underneath with Keenan Allen, Stevie Johnson, Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead, but have not had the threat to beat teams over the top.

Jones may not get a lot of action on offense, but when he is on the field he will pose the threat of going long. We still remember those deep passes he caught with the Houston Texans and more memorably the Baltimore Ravens. If he can keep the safeties honest, it should open up the field more for the other players on the team. With Keenan and Antonio on the roster, defenses will likely look to stop them from making plays and it could open up the field for Jones to make some huge catches.
