Los Angeles Chargers Chargers QB Justin Herbert and San Francisco49ers QB Trey Lance
No quest for a starting quarterback is needed for the Chargers, as they have Justin Herbert in their ranks. Herbert picked sixth in the 2020 draft, has shone as a star since then, a role he’ll undoubtedly maintain, further reinforced by his eligibility for a contract extension. The upcoming season’s starting quarterback for the Chargers is none other than Justin Herbert, who recently penned a contract that secures him as the highest-paid quarterback across the league. Backing him up will be Easton Stick, while rookie Max Duggan from TCU assumes the third-string role.
Similarly, in the 49ers’ lineup, Trey Lance takes up the mantle of the starting quarterback, as he did in the 2018 season. The competition for this spot includes the impressive Sam Darnold, signifying the depth in their quarterback roster. Notably, Trent Williams stands out as a top-tier athlete, with his commanding presence as a left tackle making him one of the NFL’s finest in his position. The 49ers’ consistent presence among the top defensive teams since 2019 owes much to Nick Bosa, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year.
