Quentin Jammer was the fifth pick in round one of the 2002 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers.  Jammer is in the final year of a seven year deal worth $31.8 million.

Today’s game against the Oakland Raiders could be Jammer’s last game with San Diego.  According to Michael Gehlken of, Jammer said “Last year I guess.”

Jammer continued by saying “I think about it all the time.  Everything I’ve been through – the ups the downs, being a part of this organization for such a long time.  Not to know my future is weird, different.”

Jammer has often been criticized for his lack of interceptions with his most in a season being four in 2003 and four in 2006.  However, interceptions are not always the best way to determine a cornerback’s value.

Jammer will play in his 172nd game as a Charger today which ranks fourth all-time in franchise history.  Jammer also said “I was sitting in meetings this morning and kind of like, wow! This could be my last Friday practice.”

Jammer has been durable because he started in every game for San Diego from 2003-2006 and only missed two games from 2003-present.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher are on a list of fewer than 25 active defensive players with more games played than Jammer.

If San Diego defeats their bitter rivals, it would make Jammer’s last game special.  If today’s game against Oakland is the last one for Jammer in a Chargers uniform, the 33 year old could go out with a bang depending on how he plays.
