There are a lot of rumors flying around the Chargers and possibly adding another offensive weapon to the receiving unit. We STILL do not know if there is going to be a season and what rules will be in effect for that season, but let’s just assume that Vincent Jackson will be back next season because of the franchise tag. With VJ on one side, who would you want to see starting on the other side to form one of the most dangerous passing offenses EVER?
There are a lot of rumors linking Carolina’s Steve Smith to the San Diego Chargers. He wants to get out of that rebuilding franchise in Carolina and wants to move closer to his California roots. Smith is one of the most explosive receivers in the league and Philip Rivers would be the best quarterback that he has ever played with in his career.
Plaxico Burress could be an option for the Bolts to take a look at. He is just finishing up a jail sentence and would be a cheap option for the Bolts, but he comes with a lot of question marks. He has super bowl experience and was a big play receiver before he was incarcerated.
Then there are the receivers that we are familiar with. Malcom Floyd is a free agent that we could bring back. We know what to expect from him – he is acrobatic and has great hands, but he has struggled to stay on the field due to injuries.
If we don’t bring in anyone in and don’t re-sign Malcom, then we still have Patrick Crayton on the roster. He made some big plays before he suffered a wrist injury last season.
