    <font class="newstext">The only team that entered the season without a quarterback with any NFL starts got the experienced backup it had been haggling for, sending a sixth-round draft pick to Tennessee for Billy Volek. </font>

    <font class="newstext">The pick would upgrade to a fifth-rounder if Volek plays 50 percent of the team's snaps this season, which the Chargers certainly hope he does not. </font></blockquote>
