Never a bad thing to do your homework on other incoming quarterbacks.

According to a report on from The Draft Network’s Crissy Froyd, the Chargers are one of four teams whop have recently met with former Stanford and Mississippi State quarterback, K.J. Costello.

While this doesn’t necessarily move the needle for Chargers fans now that the franchise as their guy in Justin Herbert, it’s not unheard of for team’s to do their fair share of research on incoming quarterbacks, regardless of it being a need for not. For some, it’s a way to get a leg up on scouting opponents, should said quarterbacks find themselves starting in the NFL some day.

Costello had a very unusual final collegiate season with the Bulldogs. In Week 1 against the defending national champions, he threw for 623 yards and five touchdowns with two interceptions in a wild victory. But from there, he managed just one more touchdown and a whopping nine picks across the other five games he participated in. Two weeks after beating LSU, he was losing his job to true freshman, Will Rogers.

Prior to MSU, Costello started 29 games in three years for Stanford. He left Palo Alto as a grad transfer after throwing for 6,151 yards, 49 touchdowns, and 18 interceptions.
