While Jarret Johnson has missed the last 5 training camp practices, Larry English has been getting the snaps with the first team. Larry English!
The next available linebacker after Larry would be 5th round draft pick Tourek Williams. Thomas Keiser would also be one of the linebackers looking to get some playing time too, but he is sidelined with a little injury. The depth on the defensive side of the football is not pretty.
That’s why the Chargers were interested in a player like Joe Mays. The Chargers will keep their eyes on the waiver wire throughout training camp and will be looking for different players that can fill in the gaps.
There is not a ton of money to mess around with under the salary cap, but the team can work some black magic somehow. Keep an eye on that waiver wire.
