Why the LA Chargers should push hard for free agent K.J. Wright

The LA Chargers have several roster holes that need to be addressed this offseason. With Justin Herbert under center and on his rookie contract, the Chargers have the number one asset you can have in making a Super Bowl run. With a new head coach that is hopefully the right one in Brandon Staley, the […] Why the LA Chargers should push hard for free agent K.J.

Chargers to meet with BYU WR Dax Milne

Photo by Mark Brown/ Milne was the top target for one of the nation’s best quarterbacks in 2020. Top quarterback prospect Zach Wilson had the BYU offense firing on all cylinders this past season and a big reason for that was the play of his top pass-catcher, wideout Dax Milne. Per The Draft Network’s Justin Melo, the 6’1, 190-pound Milne is reportedly scheduled to meet virtually with the Chargers, among other teams. One guy I want to talk about is BYU's Dax Milne. While watching Zach Wilson, it was Milne who came down with a lot of those big plays (70-1188-8 in...

LA Chargers: Why Jacoby Brissett makes sense as the backup QB

Justin Herbert needs a new backup. Tyrod Taylor is scheduled to hit free agency this month and may not be back. If he accepts his role on the LA Chargers as the backup, there could be some negotiations between the two sides. However, it’s more likely that Taylor will go look for an opportunity where […] LA Chargers: Why Jacoby Brissett makes sense as the backup QB - Bolt Beat - Bolt Beat - LA Chargers News and Fan Community

Chargers Daily Links: Bolts should keep an eye on OL cap casualties in coming weeks

Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/ Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. We’re officially under two weeks away from the start of this year’s free agency period, which means there’s likely going to be quite a few players made available in the coming days as teams with little cap space attempt to become more flexible by cutting ties with less-than-ideal contracts. The Raiders recently made the decision to release longtime guard Gabe Jackson — whom the Chargers may want to take a look at, themselves — and he’s certainly not going to be the last...

Reasons for and against the LA Chargers pursuing Kyle Rudolph

The LA Chargers have a big decision at the tight end position this offseason. Tight end Hunter Henry is a free agent after getting franchise tagged last season and the Chargers cannot afford to let him walk away for the sake of Justin Herbert.

Photo by Nick Tre. Smith/Icon Sportswire via Expectations are sky-high in the City of Angels. What’s going on, Chargers family? Yesterday, I sat down with our Rams lead writer Kenneth Arthur to talk about the state of both the Chargers and the Rams. We essentially went through the entire gambit of topics, moving from position to position discussing where each team stands at the moment, what moves we think may come in free agency and the draft, and what our overall expectations will be for them heading into the 2021. We also touch on the fun fact that SoFi Stadium is...

As exciting as the first two days of the NFL Draft are, there’s something special about the final four rounds where you just can’t wait to see what type of value your favorite can find. Not many highs are better than watching some of your personal favorites fall only to have your team snatch them up a round or two later than you expected them to. So for today’s conversation, let’s talk about your favorite prospects that you want the Chargers to consider in round four through...

LA Chargers: Grading the dismal 2020 offensive line

Grading the offensive line is going to be a lot more difficult than the other end-of-season 2020 grades I’ve done to this point. It’s not actually harder to write about or anything, but man is it brutal to think about. There’s more Ds and Fs than I can fully process.

Justin Herbert: How the best rookie QBs and their teams fared in year 2

The LA Chargers managed to completely sidestep the quarterback carousel that so many teams get stuck in year after year by drafting Justin Herbert.

In the real-life NFL, that statement still rings true to this day. With that in mind, it’s intriguing to see the Chargers among the teams whop have recently met, or are scheduled to meet, with Auburn wide receiver Anthony Schwartz, according to The Draft Network’s Justin Melo. #Auburn WR Anthony Schwartz has the deep speed (former track star) to take the top off the defense.

A bold move by the Chargers could involve a veteran corner from the NFC West

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Is this even a realistic option? With each new free agency period that comes in the NFL, there are going to be fans who will hope and pray that their team goes out on a limb to sign at least one notable player. One guy who will make a substantial impact on the team in the immediate or simply a veteran with some name power that could add something new to the team’s chemistry. With this idea in mind, the folks of Football Outsiders, in conjunction with ESPN, wrote about one “daring” move that each NFL team could make this offseason. For...
