In a slight bit of irony, two quarterbacks that were on the L.S.U. roster this past season could possibly return to a place that was the sight of a major disappointment for both when their teams face the New Orleans Saints this season.

Former L.S.U. quarterbacks Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson saw their college career’s end on a sour note in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when Alabama defeated L.S.U. in the 2012 BCS Championship.

Now the two may have a chance to seek some slight redemption this upcoming season when the two teams that they are currently with will play against the Saints this season in the Superdome, provided they are still on the roster.

Lee went undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft and wasn’t invited to the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine.  However, as soon as the draft concluded, the San Diego Chargers signed him as an undrafted free agent.

If Lee remains on the roster when the Chargers travel to New Orleans on October 7, he won’t see any playing time.  Philip Rivers is the undisputed starter and Lee will compete with Charlie Whitehurst for the backup position.

Oddly, this will be the second time Lee will watch from the sidelines in the Superdome.  He did the same against Alabama in part due to a quarterback controversy involving Jefferson.
