The Los Angeles Chargers are expecting big things out of second year receiver Josh Palmer. The former Tennessee standout impressed in his rookie season, hauling in 33 passes for 353 yards and four touchdowns.
Palmer could be in for an even bigger second season as he improves his chemistry with quarterback Justin Herbert.
Los Angeles second preseason game of the season could be a good hint for what Palmer is capable of doing in his second campaign. Tallying one of two Chargers’ touchdowns in the game, Palmer caught a screen pass and scampered 18 yards to give Los Angeles a second quarter league.

The Ontario, Canada native had three solid seasons in Knoxville but no true breakout seasons— in part due to the Vols’ lack of consistency at quarterback.
Palmer caught 33 passes for 475 yards and four touchdowns in his final season at Tennessee, becoming a third round draft pick in the process.
The Charges open the regular season on Sept. 11 against Las Vegas.
