Chargers' trade for Cardale Jones means no RG3

28 July 2017

The Los Angeles Chargers were said to have a positive work out with National Football League free agent quarterback Robert Griffin III Tuesday, but general manager Tom Telesco made a decision to go with a sturdier backup in former Ohio State Buckeyes QB Cardale Jones.

The Los Angeles Chargers acquired second-year quarterback Cardale Jones on Wednesday in a trade with the Buffalo Bills that sends a conditional draft pick to Buffalo. ESPN's Adam Schefter later revealed the conditional pick is in the seventh round.

Jones, a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, appeared in only one game during his rookie season. Jones was a project for the Bills, where Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn spent last season as running backs coach before his promotion to offensive coordinator.

"Cardale is a good young talent, and he's going to add competition behind Philip Rivers", Lynn was quoted as saying on the Chargers' official website.

As far as storage is concerned, it will have 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and Samsung's own Bixby voice-assistant, said the report. Tipster Evan Blass has pegged the price of the upcoming Galaxy Note device to be around 999 euro (Rs 72,123 approx).

When asked about the trade, Coach Lynn said, "He's the type of QB you want waiting on the runway".

The trade likely signals the end of the Chargers' interest in Robert Griffin III. "He's going to have the opportunity to come on the field and compete".

The Bills' selection of Pittsburgh Panthers quarterback Nathan Peterman, who was taken 171st overall this year, may have portended Jones' eventual departure, but they've seen nothing of Peterman outside of rookie minicamp thus far.

Along with Peterman and Taylor in the Bills quarterback room is recently signed veteran T.J. Yates. Cardale is someone we think can be developed. He completed 6 of 11 passes for 96 yards and an interception in Buffalo's season finale.
