Approval Rating: Quentin Jammer

Quentin Jammer joined the Chargers in 2002 after being drafted 5th overall. He held out during training camp, but was active for 14 of the Chargers' 16 games that year and started 4. Since then he's started in 141 regular season games and 5 playoff games over 9 seasons and only missed 2 games due to injury. He's currently the longest tenured Chargers player.

Despite being a high draft pick and playing on one of the winningest teams of this era, he's never been selected to a Pro Bowl. A big reason for that is his lack of interceptions. His career high is 4 and he only averages 1.8 interceptions per year. Early in his career he was also known for giving up penalties due to his physical play. On top of that, he had a bad year on the field this past season. He was only of the few cornerbacks in the league that averaged over 10 yards per play when the ball was thrown to his area.

However, he's a sure tackler, he's a dependable starter and he's corrected most of his issues relating to giving up penalties. The Chargers valued him enough after the 2005 season to give him a 5 year contract extension that paid him handsomely and went through the 2012 season. Today we sit on the precipice of that 2012 season and wonder what the future holds for Quentin Jammer in a Chargers. He's almost assuredly going to be retained by the Chargers, but will he be able to prove that the 2011 season was just a down year and not the start of a decline. The other rumor that gets floated around is a possible move to safety even though the team has never said that they are considering such a move.

Jammer's approval rating will probably end up being a mixed bag. Some would base it off of his full body of work and figure that they approve since he's given the Chargers more good seasons than bad. Some may use this past season as a trump card; a way to show their approval of Jammer as a measure of how much value he currently has. Others may want to project that position change on the defensive back and figure that since he'll switch and supposedly be more valuable, they'll give him the thumbs up. Put in your vote and let us know your reasons in the comments.
