Artavis Scott

We’ve been waiting… and waiting… and waiting for Scott to do something. It seems we may wait forever.

Tyrell Williams left in the offseason and the team parted ways with Dylan Cantrell early in camp, creating a huge opportunity for someone to step through. No one has.

In the Chargers’ preseason opener against the Arizona Cardinals, the team managed to complete just five passes to wide receivers. Scott had just one catch for three yards and guys like Malachai Dupre and Jordan Smallwood, two late additions to the roster who have little to no chance of making the team, looked better.

Is Scott an NFL receiver? He’s managed to hang around the organization for a couple of years by way of the practice squad and injured reserve list, but he hasn’t really been able to show what he can do on the field since he was at Clemson in college.

Scott needs to make some plays in this game. He needs to get his hands on multiple passes and show that he can get some yards after the catch. One catch for three yards is not going to cut it and might put him so far down on the depth chart that there will be no coming back up.
