Should the Chargers pursue Kendall Langford?


Kendall Langford was released off of the St Louis Rams  and could be a player that the San Diego Chargers could have interest in. 

The San Diego Chargers need some help up front on the defensive line. Corey Liuget is solid at one spot on the end, but the other positions could use some help. Sean Lissemore is a versatile player on the defensive line that can play at the nose or at the end position. Kendall Reyes has struggled since he has been inserted into the starting lineup. He has not been able to stop the run and has not been able to provide a pass rush. The Chargers should look to find some help on the defensive line this offseason to help out the defense and move Reyes back into a backup role.

A number of mock drafts have the Chargers looking to the defensive line in the first round. Todd McShay had the Chargers looking at Malcom Brown with the team’s first selection in the draft. The Chargers could lean in that direction or they could look to find someone in free agency that could help. The need is obvious for the team.

Kendall Langford was released off of the St. Louis Rams recently and the Chargers could have some interest in the vet. Langford lost his starting job to rookie phenom Aaron Donald and now has lost his roster spot. He would be a big body that could clog up a couple of blockers and allow his linebackers to make plays. He had 5 sacks a couple of seasons ago and then only had 1 sack last season in his backup role. He is someone that is still young and could help a team as a starter up front.

The Chargers could look to add a veteran leadership on the defense. Adding a player like Langford will help the team immediately. Winning starts in the trenches. Picking up defensive linemen will never win the crowd over, but it will help win games.
