There is a ton of Lebron James talk on the internet. Everyone wants to see where the heck he is going to land in free agency and everyone is jumping in on to see what will be happening. Too bad the site crapped out and the circus is going crazy.

How in the earth does it relate to Chargers news…. it doesn’t, but I wanted to touch on it since football news is scarce. I can make a link of some sort.

LeBron James is the biggest free agent on the market and it looks like he could be joining the young Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs will instantly become a contender to win a championship after the move.

This is how I will make this relate… The Chargers will have a boat ton of room under the salary cap next season and will have the opportunity to make a splash. The team is talented and should be able to lure in a talented free agent onto the roster. Could the Chargers pursure one of the big names to join the squad? There will be some nice talent to pick from.

Denver Broncos WR Demayrius Thomas will be a free agent. The Chargers could use another receiver with speed and talent on the roster to join Keenan Allen and Philip Rivers. I am sure that Mike McCoy would love to have the receiver back on his sideline. Could you imagine the offense with Thomas running wild and free? Could the team make that type of splash with their money?

Another free agent is Ndamukong Suh. Defense and the defensive tackle position have been an issue forever and Suh could give the team a huge playmaker in the middle of the defensive line. The team would need to make some changes to the scheme, but that is a different discussion.

The Chargers are mainly building up this team through the draft. The team hasn’t made big moves in free agency under Tom Telesco, but they have not had the ability to yet. Could they make that splash in the next offseason? Imagine the roster with another superstar!
