Chargers fans don’t have to sweat it out, because Los Angeles has signed its 2017 first-round pick.

After facing scrutiny last year due to a contract stalemate with 2016 first-round pick Joey Bosa, the Chargers immediately erased any worry this year when they signed former Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams to a four-year deal Thursday. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Williams’ deal includes $19.75 million in guarantees.

This is great news for a team that made headlines in a bad way last summer. Williams officially joins receivers Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman, which should make QB Philip Rivers very excited (I mean, new HC Anthony Lynn said Rivers already looks rejuvenated).

With the Williams signing out of the way, the Chargers, who have received nothing but praise for their offseason work, can now focus on getting their players on the field and ready to compete.
