The Chargers added a veteran quarterback to the roster, signing QB Chase Daniel to one-year deal on Friday.

Daniel, 34, has bounced around the league for over a decade now, having spent four years with the Saints, three with the Chiefs, two with the Bears and one with both the Lions and Eagles.

During that timespan, the former Missouri product has thrown for only 1,694 passing yards, eight touchdowns, and seven interceptions.

Daniel has ties to offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, as the two spent four seasons together in New Orleans (2009-12).

Daniel has been considered an ideal veteran mentor for young quarterbacks, which is something he learned from Drew Brees during their time together with the Saints.

Daniel will battle it out with Easton Stick for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. Even if he loses, Daniel is familiar with Lombardi’s offense, but most importantly, he’s able to serve as a preceptor to Justin Herbert.
