The Chargers’ specialists – kicker Dustin Hopkins, punter JK Scott and long snapper Josh Harris – have been identified. DeAndre Carter was signed in free agency as a kick returner.

But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to see on Saturday when one of the special teams is on the field. In fact, there should be plenty to see during those kick-game moments.

Final spots on NFL rosters are often heavily influenced by who gets to play on special teams. This is especially true for the 2022 Chargers who are looking to ramp up their kicking games significantly.

Players like Deane Leonard, Ja’Sir Taylor and Kemon Hall – all fighting for reserve cornerback spots – could make big impressions against the Cowboys.

Last week, Leonard, linebacker Damon Lloyd, safety JT Woods and tight end Hunter Kampmoyer played the most special team snaps against the Rams.
