Clemens signed a one-year deal to remain with the Chargers, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Clemens is 6-9 with 73 yards and a touchdown in relief of Phillip Rivers over the past two seasons. The Chargers will keep him around as a veteran who knows the offense just in case Rivers goes down at some point.

Clemens finished the 2015 season with a total of six pass attempts in relief of Philip Rivers, who started all 16 games.

EDGE Analysis

Philip Rivers still has not missed a game since taking over as the starter in 2006, so Clemens was obviously not needed for much this season. In the one games in which he actually saw real action in relief, he went five-for-six for 63 yards and a touchdown, proving that he can be a capable passer if needed. Expect the Chargers to bring him back again in 2016.

Clemens completed five-of-six passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss at Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

With the game out of reach, the Bolts sat Philip Rivers down, and Clemens actually played pretty well, leading the team on a nice drive that ended with a 19-yard touchdown throw to Keenan Allen.

Clemens completed 1 of 3 passes for 10 yards after replacing Philip Rivers (hand) with two minutes left in the third quarter of Sunday's 37-0 loss at Miami.

Rivers' injury isn't considered serious, as the team simply decided it wasn't worth putting their starting quarterback into a game they were trailing by 37. The Chargers are off in Week 10, allowing Rivers extra time to heal, but if the injury turns out to be more serious than initially believed, Clemens could get the Week 11 start against the Raiders,

Clemens completed 14 of 21 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns in Friday night's exhibition loss at Seattle.

The Bolts did not play many of their regulars for long in this game, but the solid performance by Clemens is notable because it appears that he will serve as a solid backup option to Philip Rivers this year and might actually be an upgrade over former No. 2, Charlie Whitehurst.

Kellen Clemens completed 21-of-30 passes for 157 yards, one touchdown, and two picks in St. Louis' Week 17 loss to Seattle.

Clemens wound up starting nine games following Sam Bradford's ACL tear, compiling an 8:7 TD-to-INT ratio as a caretaker quarterback who severely limited what the Rams could do offensively. They changed their entire offense with Clemens under center, morphing from a spread to run-heavy team in an effort to "hide" Clemens. Clemens is now an impending free agent. St. Louis should look to upgrade in the offseason, though OC Brian Schottenheimer's familiarity with Clemens could buy him another year in the Gateway City.

Kellen Clemens completed 16-of-27 passes for 181 yards and two interceptions in the Rams' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

Clemens was downright awful, which tends to happen more often than not with him. He was indecisive with the football and made some really bad throws. Clemens' first interception was a pick-six that he threw right to Karlos Dansby. The second was a heave down the middle of the field. Clemens was sacked four times and hit numerous other times. Backup QB Austin Davis was warming up at one point after Clemens was decked from behind on a sack. Clemens won't be a fantasy option next week against the Saints at home.

Kellen Clemens completed 9-of-16 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in St. Louis' Week 10 win over the Colts.

Clemens had Tavon Austin to thank for his big day, as the rookie wideout turned his only two catches into 138 yards and two touchdowns. Otherwise, Clemens was called on to simply not lose the game. He spent the majority of the afternoon sticking the ball into Zac Stacy's chest, though he botched one handoff, getting credited with a lost fumble. It's quite possible the yardage will go down as a season high for the Rams' interim game manager. Clemens will be a low-end QB2 coming off the Rams' Week 11 bye.

Kellen Clemens completed 20-of-35 passes for 210 yards, a touchdown, and 16 yards rushing in the Rams' Week 9 loss to Tennessee.

Clemens has a cleaner-looking throwing motion than Tim Tebow, but the results are ordinarily the same. Clemens is a scattershot passer who makes mistakes with bodies around him. He's a major downgrade from Sam Bradford. The Rams play the Colts next. Look for Clemens to make a third straight start.
