3. Storm Norton

Storm Norton was probably the most disliked Chargers player on the 2022 roster. It was nothing against Norton personally but every time he entered the game bad things usually happened for the Bolts.

Norton was signed after being an XFL standout and he got a chance to earn his place in the league in 2021. Bryan Bulaga played all of one half in the 2021 season, essentially making Norton the full-time right tackle.

Norton struggled in this role and was statistically one of the worst tackles in the entire sport. Because of his familiarity with the offense, though, he survived roster cutdowns in 2022 and made the roster as the team's swing tackle.

Rashawn Slater went down with an injury in Week 3 and Norton came in to play left tackle and it went really poorly. It was so bad that the Chargers trusted a rookie who was drafted to be a guard at left tackle over Norton, who then lost out on playing at right tackle to Foster Sarell.

Norton signed with the New Orleans Saints and he was up to his old ways when he faced the Chargers in the preseason. After seeing that, Chargers fans knew that it was only time until Norton was waived from the 53-man roster.

While he did not make the roster, the Saints ultimately kept him in the organization by signing him to the practice squad.
