San Diego Chargers: The Salary Cap Situation

Mr. T (Tom Telesco) and the San Diego Chargers have a lot of work to do this offseason. They have a few players that are free agents that they have to get re-signed. They also have to do some work in making more room under the salary cap. There will be some pink slips handed out.

John Clayton just released some salary cap numbers and the Chargers are currently $8.7 million under the cap. In contrast, the Cincinnati Bengals have the most room under the cap with $55.1 million available. The Denver Broncos are $18.5 million under, Kansas City Chiefs are $16.1 million under and the Oakland Raiders have work to do. They are $4.5 million over the salary cap.

The Chargers will have to get creative if they want to sign some big name free agents. Telesco has preached that he wants to build the team through the draft, but I am sure he will want to dip into the free agent market for some players. Most fans are just hoping for one good name to be brought to town. Can’t wait to see what the team does. This offseason is too long!
