When the Carolina Panthers released QB Cam Newton, the Chargers were the favorites to sign him. That buzz was created as they saw long-time Chargers QB Philip Rivers sign with the Indianapolis Colts. Anthony Lynn said that the Chargers did consider signing Newton, but held off.

Chargers head coach, Anthony Lynn seems to have faith in Tyrod Taylor, as they want to give him a chance first to prove himself. The Chargers also drafted Oregon QB, Justin Herbert, and he could be their cornerstone QB. Chargers were thinking long-term with these decisions, while still being able to compete during the upcoming season.

In four seasons at Oregon, Herbert threw for 10,541 yards, 95 touchdowns, 23 interceptions, and he completed 64% of his passes. Under Anthony Lynn’s system, a QB who is mobile, will thrive. Tyrod Taylor is that QB. If Herbert can turn into an elite mobile QB, the Chargers will be a tough team to stop.

Some people disagree with the Chargers passing on the opportunity to sign Cam Newton, and although Cam is an unbelievable talent, the Chargers have enough talent to win now and in the future.

Also, with free agency coming up for players such as Keenan Allen and Melvin Ingram, the Chargers made a smart decision not to sign Cam Newton. With what the Chargers have to work with now, offensively, and defensively, if they remain healthy, that will be good enough to compete in the playoffs and possibly make a Super Bowl run as well.
