The San Diego Chargers are in play for Hakeem Nicks. There is finally a little rumor that is coming out for the Chargers. We had Earl Mitchell rumors to start free agency and now there are Hakeem Nicks rumors that are floating around, per Pro Football Talk.

It is nice to see the rumors with the Chargers looking to get a receiver on this team. The Chargers offense was good last season, but we relied heavily on the running game and Keenan Allen was getting double covered a lot to end the season. The team needs to find another threat on offense in order to get Allen some space to work with.

Hakeem Nicks has had some issues with injuries the last couple of seasons and has had a couple of down seasons. He is also in play for the Carolina Panthers and the Indianapolis Colts. If he wants to work with a good offense, he will likely choose between the Colts and the Chargers. It all will just depend on how much he is looking to make this season. We don’t have a ton of money to work with, but we can make some things happen.
