Chargers should have gambled on Jack - Nick Canepa (UT$)

The adage of football being a business gets thrown around, but like when Scifres took over for former Chargers punter Darren Bennett, Kaser will get his chance to do the same.  Head Coach Mike McCoy mentioned how Scifres was not only a true professional on the phone, but he will remain one of the Chargers’ greatest players of all time.

Five Lessons from the Chargers 2016 NFL Draft - Ricky Henne
"We were on the phone a lot.  There really weren’t any scenarios with going up in this draft, but we were on the phone a lot as far as potentially moving back.  Sometimes they just fall through or sometimes the other team just pulls out and goes somewhere else.  It’s just the nature of the business, but it was a little odd to go a whole draft without a trade."
