Panthers, Chargers swap Pro Bowl OLs Turner, Okung (0:23)

The Panthers and Chargers agree to trade Pro Bowl offensive linemen, with right guard Trai Turner going to Los Angeles and Russell Okung going to Carolina. (0:23)

The Los Angeles Chargers open training camp July 28 in Costa Mesa, California, as they look to recover from a snakebitten 2019 season. The Chargers will be playing in a brand-new facility after playing the last three seasons in a soccer stadium and have a new starting quarterback for the first time since 2006. They are hoping to make the playoffs for the second time in three seasons and only the third time since 2010. Here's our projection for the 53-man roster heading into training camp.


QUARTERBACKS (3): Tyrod Taylor, Justin Herbert, Easton Stick

Three quarterbacks is the safe way to go as the Chargers move on from Philip Rivers. Taylor is the expected starter, but it's uncertain how quickly Herbert, the No. 6 overall pick in the NFL draft, will be ready to back him up since he was unable to practice due to the virtual offseason program. Stick, a second-year pro, provides some insurance just in case.
