The 2016 free-agent signing period starts in less than one month, and the San Diego Chargers should be shopping for upgrades at several positions following a dismal 4-12 season.
To determine if Tom Telesco and his staff can strike gold this year, it’s important to look back at his track record. Telesco will be entering his fourth season as general manager. During that time, the Chargers have 22-26 with a trip to the divisional round of the playoffs following the 2013 season.
But this will be an important year for the team, particularly as it tries to convince the area to build a new stadium. Fans are much more apt to support a winner, so Telesco will charged with putting a much better team on the field in 2016.
But before we talk anymore about who the team may bring over in 2016, let’s first take a look back at the moves the team made last season. After all, it will be the same regime in charge this year.
