Is the starting left tackle already on the San Diego Chargers roster? After releasing Jared Gaither today, the Chargers have one less option to use at left tackle if Lane Johnson is not available with the 11th pick in the draft. If Lane Johnson is not there for us in the draft, then who will the Chargers use to start at left tackle?
Could we trot Mike Harris back out there for more punishment on the left side? Are we going to throw King Dunlap out there for a season and hope he can hold up? Or will we just be praying that we can get a left tackle somewhere in the draft? If Lane Johnson is not there, then maybe we will look for someone in the second round to fill the hole, like Terron Armstead.
Right now, King Dunlap looks like the best option to put out there on the left side. The same King Dunlap that Philadelphia Eagles fans were stoked about kicking off of their squad.
There will be a competition for the left tackle job and there are a few options that are not yet on the roster. Offensive line has to be high on Tom Telesco’s list to fix during the NFL draft. We are sure to pickup a few players before we start suiting up to play games. Hopefully one of those guys can play like a stud!
