FF Today's Take:The Chargers' current coaching staff features two of Zach Mettenberger's former coaches while he was in Nashville in Ken Whisenhunt and John McNulty. The familiarity should provide Mettenberger a solid shot to be Phillip Rivers' backup heading into the 2016 season as he battles incumbent Kellen Clemens. Mettenberger became more expendable in Tennessee after the team chose a more experienced quarterback, Matt Cassel, to serve as the primary backup to starter Marcus Mariota.
