The Chargers are bringing in another arm for training camp this year as it’s being reported that former Stanford and Mississippi State quarterback K.J. Costello has received a recent invite from the team.

Costello met with the Bolts on at least one previous occasion during the pre-draft process.

While at Stanford from 2017-2019, Costello threw for 6,151 yards and 49 touchdowns to 18 interceptions in 25 total starts. In 2018, Costello started all 13 games, finishing with 3,540 yards with 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

In his lone year under Mike Leach, Costello threw for 1,238 yards with six touchdowns to 11 interceptions. He appeared in six games with five starts. After struggling early, he lost the starting job to freshman Will Rogers, who started the team’s other six games.

The only thing Chargers fans need to acknowledge from this bit of news is that the team is bringing in an extra arm for camp and maybe it turns into some competition for Easton Stick, but either way, this doesn’t move the needle for anything significant.
