Storm Norton - New Orleans Saints

The Storm Norton era is over! Norton has been the Chargers' swing tackle over the last two seasons and the results every time he stepped on the field were horrible. Norton was statistically one of (if not the) worst tackles in the league in 2021 and the Chargers learned from that in 2022.

Instead of going with Storm with Rashawn Slater going down, the Chargers instead trusted in a rookie sixth-round pick that was drafted to be a guard to play left tackle. Jamaree Salyer ended up doing great, thankfully, but that is not a risk you take if you were confident in Norton.

Then, when Trey Pipkins missed some time the team preferred to go with Foster Sarell (who was not very good) at right tackle instead of Norton. The writing was on the wall for Norton's departure and now he joins another tackle that was previously tied to the Chargers, Trevor Penning.
