Tevaughn Campbell got a lot of playing time for the LA Chargers last season. The Bolts already had a really thin secondary and were dealing with injuries, making Campbell one of the most prominent players in the defense.
Campbell was prominent for the wrong reasons, though, as it became clear early on that he was not suited to be a corner that plays nearly every down. It started so well with him forcing two fumbles against the Kansas City Chiefs but it was all downhill from there.
Campbell was exposed and targeted time and time again when he was on the field last season and he genuinely did not add a positive impact in the slightest. If the same Campbell shows up to camp that showed up last season then he is going to have to fight tooth and nail for a roster spot.
Yes, he did play a lot last season and that might give him the benefit of the doubt to get a roster spot. However, the Chargers do have a new starting trio with the addition of J.C. Jackson as well as more depth options in Bryce Callahan, Deane Leonard and Ja'Sir Taylor.
Yes, Leonard and Taylor are unproven but the Chargers are going to bet on them over Campbell, especially after last season, every single time.
