The San Diego Chargers need to look at getting a running back on the roster that can stay healthy and move the chains for the team. Branden Oliver did a solid job in his rookie season, but he seems to be best used in a running back-by-committee or a possible 3rd down back.

The Chargers need a run game. Ryan Mathews was not able to stay healhty enough to help the team this season. It has been the common curse for Ryan his whole career.

Where should the Chargers spend their money this offseason?

They will have money to spend this offseason in free agency. Tom Telesco has not dipped into the free agency market much in his time with the Chargers and running back likely will not be an area that he uses that money. If he did choose to use it on a back, here are a few players that could help the roster.
