  Chargers | Showed interest in Billy Volek    Sat Jul 28, 01:29 AM

The San Diego Chargers and free-agent QB Billy Volek (Chargers) had a mutual interest in a reunion, but remained apart on dollar figures. The team ended up inking QB Kyle Boller instead.

Footballguys view: Volek is on a lot of team's speed dials during training camp. The seasoned veteran can be used as an emergency starting QB and could get a phone call if injuries hit the QB position during August.

  Broncos | Have spoken with Billy Volek     Sat Mar 24, 08:41 AM

The Denver Broncos have had some discussions with free-agent QB Billy Volek (Chargers).

Footballguys view: The Broncos are looking for a veteran backup QB behind Peyton Manning, and Volek fits the bill. We don't expect Denver to select a QB in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft because they added Manning.

  Chargers |Billy Volek released    Fri Mar 16, 09:54 PM

The San Diego Chargers released QB Billy Volek Friday, March 16. Volek was due a $750,000 roster bonus Thursday, March 22.

Footballguys view: Volek became expendable once the Chargers re-signed Charlie Whitehurst. He is a valuable veteran backup and should get some interest around the league.

  Chargers | Want Billy Volek to return    Tue Jul 26, 04:54 PM

The San Diego Chargers want to re-sign unrestricted free-agent QB Billy Volek. The Chargers, however, do not know yet if Volek wants to return as the backup to QB Philip Rivers again this season. The team plans to make an offer to Volek, possibly in the three-year, $9 million range they did after the 2007 season.

Footballguys view: Volek may be looking for a chance to start and could move on for an opportunity to do that. If the Chargers lose Volek they could sign a veteran like Trent Edwards or Charlie Frye to hold a clipboard behind Philip Rivers.

  Chargers | Matt Moore could be an option    Tue Jul 26, 04:53 PM

The San Diego Chargers could show interest in unrestricted free-agent QB Matt Moore (Panthers) if they are not able to re-sign QB Billy Volek.

Footballguys view: Moore played the worst football of his career when he started the season as the #1 QB for the Panthers last year, but he is too young to be completely written off.

  Chargers | May try to re-sign some free agents    Tue Jul 19, 01:43 AM

The San Diego Chargers will likely try to re-sign unrestricted free-agent QB Billy Volek and DE Jacques Cesaire when the NFL lockout is over.

Footballguys view: Volek is a quality backup, but some feel he wants the chance to compete for a starting job. If he leaves in free agency the Chargers would then be in the market for a veteran to backup Philip Rivers.

  Chargers | Would like to bring back Billy Volek    Mon Jul 4, 04:13 PM

The San Diego Chargers would like to re-sign impending free-agent QB Billy Volek once the lockout is over and may be willing to pay him a little more than they would like in order to keep him. Volek has been mentioned as a possible candidate for some of the available starting quarterback jobs.

Footballguys view: Some feel Volek wants a shot to be a starter in the league and could go elsewhere to get that opportunity. We feel the Chargers will make him a fair offer to stay with the team to give them veteran insurance behind Philip Rivers.

  Panthers | Unlikely to pursue Billy Volek    Wed Apr 13, 04:26 PM

The Carolina Panthers likely will not pursue San Diego Chargers impending free-agent QB Billy Volek this offseason as a possible stop gap at quarterback, sources told Steve Reed, of CarolinaGrowl.com.

Footballguys view: Volek has been collecting a paycheck behind Philip Rivers for a few years now. However, some fantasy owners will remember when he and WR Drew Bennett set the fantasy world on fire in the fantasy playoffs back in 2004. Volek is a good backup, but we don't feel he would make a good stopgap quarterback.

  Chargers | Billy Volek to see extensive playing time    Fri Jan 1, 08:32 PM

The Associated Press reports Billy Volek is expected to get his most extensive playing time in two years when the red-hot San Diego Chargers host the Washington Redskins in a meaningless regular-season finale Sunday. Coach Norv Turner said Rivers will start and then make way for Volek at some point. "I want to see Billy get some good opportunities," Turner said.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have won 10 straight games, and locked up the division title in the AFC West. They also wrapped up the #2 seed in the AFC, a first-round bye, and have nothing to gain in this contest. Norv Turner does not want to risk his star quarterback to an injury, so Rivers should get replaced early on.
