Easton Stick Makes the Cut
Cut day in the NFL is behind us and guess who made the team.
Easton Stick beat our Cardale Jones for the roster spot on the Los Angeles Chargers team and now he's officially a member of the NFL. His athleticism was the defining factor while he does have some work to do to avoid interceptions. according to the Chargers site Fansided:
When the Chargers selected Easton Stick, it was a surprise. The signing of Tyrod Taylor seemed like it was the final quarterback acquisition that would happen at the time, and maybe there’d be a chance in the preseason to see if Cardale could get the third quarterback spot. After the draft, those chances began to drop dramatically. The fifth round isn’t super high, but the fact still remained the team was sinking draft capital into a quarterback for the first time since 2013.
Jones would need a magical preseason and probably hope Stick flamed out to be able to stay on the team. Jones’ preseason would end up being really good; at least, after the first game. He had the most completions, highest yards per attempt, fewest interceptions, and highest quarterback rating of all Chargers quarterbacks. Still, it was time for the team to move on.
It looks like third-string QB and potential playmaker is going to be his role this year, let's hope he stays healthy and continues to impress in the highlight reels.
