The Chargers have one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL. They must also provide him with the best weapons and protection possible. Palmer may not be a guaranteed starter yet but he’s forcing the coaching team to think about him more (via Rotoballer).
He finished the season strong and had a great training camp over the summer. This will impress Brandon Staley who has a lot to think about in 2022. The Chargers fell further behind the Rams in the L.A. pecking order and want to move forward. A breakout season for Palmer will help them achieve their incredibly lofty goals.
