Willis McGahee Interested In Joining the Chargers

Former Denver Broncos RB Willis McGahee is looking for a new spot to take his skills. He isn’t ready to hang up the cleats and he has a few places that he would be interested in joining.

“I will keep playing. I don’t feel like I have to go out there and say what I have left. I know what I can do. I’m not worried about it. Once I get the opportunity, it will be all good,” McGahee told Josina Anderson of ESPN. “There are a lot of places I wouldn’t mind playing. You got Miami, Dallas, Green Bay, San Diego, Oakland. That’s not necessarily my order of preference, though. All of those teams I mentioned I would go to with no problems.”

Should the San Diego Chargers be interested in Willis McGahee? The Chargers have Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown as their top backs. If Ryan were to go down with an injury, there is no real back that can take a ton of the carries. Brown and Woodhead are mostly considered 3rd down backs.

McGahee could be used as the main back if Mathews were to go down. He could also give Ryan a little bit of a push for the starting job. Ryan really hasn’t had much competition for the starting job and McGahee could be someone to compete.

Mike McCoy should be very familiar with McGahee. McGahee helped lead the Denver Broncos to the playoffs the last couple of seasons. He was productive as the starting back and helped lead the Broncos to the playoffs the last couple of seasons.

I am sure McGahee wouldn’t mind hooking up with McCoy again either. McGahee was coming off of the bench for Baltimore before McCoy got a hold of him. McCoy used him as the starter in Denver and resurrected his career.

Could McCoy and McGahee meet up again in San Diego?
