5. Chase Daniel

Chase Daniel's last NFL game with actual action will go down as the Week 18 loss against the Denver Broncos. After re-signing with the Bolts last spring, it seems most likely that Daniel will coast off into the sunset and start his career as an analyst.

After all, Daniel already started his post-playing career with NFL Network this season. A quarterback who is still playing doesn't take a part-time analyst role if he wasn't planning on retiring after the season. That seems like a given.

Daniel may not have ever been a true starter but he will still go down in NFL history. He is one of the most prolific backup quarterbacks in NFL history, making quite a living for being a great presence in the quarterback room to help the starter.

It will be interesting to see what the Chargers do at the quarterback position. Easton Stick is a free agent and the team obviously did not believe in him enough to activate him, so it is hard to see them committing to making him the lone backup.

There are two other routes the team could take. They could try and sign another cheap veteran to replace Daniel or they could use a late-round draft pick for a backup quarterback. The latter would not be totally surprising considering that is what they did with Stick.
