A Free Agent that Fits the Chargers

Up on ESPN’s Insider page, they have some of the best remaining free agents and where they fit best in the league. The San Diego Chargers were mentioned on the list and it actually is something that makes sense. Here is the player that they thought fit the Chargers:

Bruce Campbell | OT
Best fit: San Diego Chargers

Campbell is a measurables player. Few have his combination of raw, physical traits, as he stands close to 6-foot-7, was a combine beast and looks the part in gym shorts. Trouble is, he’s been exceptionally inconsistent on the field during his NFL career and just doesn’t project as a starter, and definitely not a long-term starter. Joe D’Alessandris is one of the highly regarded teachers in the NFL along the offensive line, and while the Chargers wouldn’t want Campbell to be their starting left tackle, he has positional flexibility to play guard and could be a project for D’Alessandris to try to mold.

That is a big dude and Tom Telesco loves having those huge bookends. Campbell could learn a ton from Coach Joe D. and the team could use some depth at the position. Mike Harris is the best backup on the roster, but he is coming off of an injury and could add some versatility onto the offensive front. This would be a nice pickup for the Chargers.

  • Julien Bélair

    well why not? depth player and cut him if he is bad

  • Steve Diaz

    I agree. This might also help if we decide to release Clary. We need more veteran depth on our Oline. Do you know how much he’ll be asking for?

  • Conor Cahill

    yes yes yes. I fell in love with this dude on madden haha but he is a great project guy to bring in. Hopefully he could eventually make enough strides to start at LG, but for now he is a nice project.

    • powderBLUE801

      That’s funny man cuz he is my starting OT in madden. He is a beast on the game.

  • 619rockstar

    Anything to get clary outa here

  • afroamongfew

    There’s a reason you have to be skeptical about the ESPN insiders, and that’s that they’re not to be completely trusted. According to Rotoworld ( dude was about to be signed by the Redskins before he failed a physical. I’d pass on him.

    • Conor Cahill

      guys can fail a physical for a variety of reasons. If we still had David Chao on staff Im sure he would pass with flying colors

  • tonyloc1970 .

    Got some guns on him for sure. If he sizes up like that, I say mold that beast coach D’Alessandris

    • jamfed

      GUNS? More like BOOM STICK!

  • Nick Mansoor

    I’d give him a shot. Remember what everyone said about Dunlap? Coach D did a good job with him. Should not have an issue with Bruce euther

  • 619chargers4life

    Coach D got skills. Sign him up!

  • Peter Thompson

    Yes. Bring him in. Competition.

  • powderBLUE801

    I know this sounds stupid but I actually have him as my starter on madden 25. Lol I think it’s a sign.

  • C.Steele

    Nope, I’d stick with Harris and the kid already on the roster from VA (Becton). Let Coach D continue to develop them, and draft someone who has the potential to be developed into a starter. Additionally, I wouldn’t be surprised if OL is where TT goes with the 1st round pick.

    I don’t think people really appreciate what our OL will be facing 2015. Clary, Hardwick, & Dunlap are done (Contracts expire). 2 of which (Hardwick and Clary) probably wont be back. Clary because, well yeah..he sucks. and Hardwick is probably gonna retire.

    Since we all know how this team performs with poor OL play, I think it will be a main focus for TT in this year’s draft. Also, I think his first and most important moves upon taking the job last year is evidence of this. He first went after the guard, Rinheart, then brought in multiple FA for the LT spot, then used the first round pick on the RT. This shows he is a GM that believes building from the inside out.
    Stay tuned for more Boss moves by TT!

    • Peter Thompson

      I would be totally fine with that. O-Line is the only offensive position I will condone drafting in the first. He repaired the o-line, and it played pretty well.. it is not a finished product.

  • Bill Nichols

    Bring his big ole ass into camp. If he sucks, cut him. If he turns into a beast, well, hell… Bolts baby!!
