  • Chargers' Cardale Jones: Stays with team
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Chargers released Kellen Clemens and kept Jones on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. According to Jack Wang of the LA Daily News , the Chargers plan to re-sign Clemens, which might push Jones back to No. 3 on the depth chart. Saturday's transaction does at least suggest the team is interested in developing Jones, who was acquired from the Bills in July in exchange for a conditional draft pick.

  • Jones completed 18 of 24 attempts for 158 yards and an interception in Thursday's preseason loss to the 49ers. He also carried the ball three times for 26 yards. As predicted, Jones got the start Thursday and put together his best statistical performance thanks to sheer volume of snaps. While Jones finished his preseason with more interceptions (3) than touchdowns (0), it seems likely the Chargers will opt to keep him on the 53-man roster, as Philip Rivers and Kellen Clemens both transition into the twilight of their careers. Either way, it appears Jones has beaten out Mike Bercovici for the No. 3 QB role, considering the latter played sparingly during the preseason and finished with two interceptions across six attempts Thursday.

  • Chargers' Cardale Jones: Could start Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones may be in line to start Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers, Dan Woike of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. With both Philip Rivers and Kellen Clemens expected to sit out Thursday's game against the 49ers, Jones will have an ample amount of snaps to impress coaches as he jockeys for a spot on the 53-man roster. Jones turned in his best performance of the preseason Saturday, throwing for 74 yards on nine completions while looking more comfortable in the pocket. With only one other quarterback, Mike Bercovici, available to play on the roster, Jones will surely play at least the first half and could extend even beyond that as the Chargers look to decide if they have their quarterback of the future in house.

  • Jones completed nine of 13 attempts for 74 yards and interception during Saturday's preseason win over the Rams. Jones saw plenty of time at quarterback, with Philip Rivers playing until the end of the first quarter, and nominal backup Kellen Clemens sitting out Saturday's contest to allow the former Ohio State product additional reps. The result was fairly encouraging, with Jones looking the most comfortable in the pocket since joining the Chargers just prior to training camp. Given Clemens' grasp of the playbook and veteran poise, it seems unlikely that Jones will be able to unseat the 34-year-old for the backup job. But if nothing else, the allure of Jones' potential may be enough to earn a spot on the final 53-man roster.

  • Jones completed seven of 15 passes for 61 yards and threw a pick in Sunday's preseason loss to New Orleans. Jones' interception in the closing moments of Sunday's game can be forgiven, considering he was backed up against his own end zone and facing fourth down. What is significantly less excusable is Jones breaking the cardinal rule of two-minute drills by taking back-to-back sacks, which cost the Chargers a total of 24 yards and put them in the aforementioned predicament. Jones' big arm makes him a very intriguing project for offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt to mold in his vertical scheme. Sunday showed, however, that while Kellen Clemens is far from spectacular, he's the safer backup to Philip Rivers at this point.
