The Los Angeles Chargers officially placed QB Eli Jenkins on waivers Thursday.
The this comes after the Chargers acquired QB Cardale Jones from the Bills in exchange for a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick, so it appears as though there weren’t going to be many snaps for Jenkins moving forward.
Jenkins, 22, signed a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Jacksonville State this past May. He stands to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the agreement.
During his four-year college career, Jenkins appeared in 53 games for Jacksonville State and recorded 583 completions on 1,031 pass attempts (56.5 percent) for 7,652 passing yards, 47 touchdowns and 27 interceptions.
