T-minus three days until the start of the signing period in the NFL.

That’s right, the new league year is on the horizon and soon, the transactions in the NFL will be coming quicker than most of us can keep up with. For the Los Angeles Chargers, the transactions should be fairly easy to keep up with.

That’s because the Chargers currently have one of the more complete rosters in the league (save for that pesky kicker spot) and there shouldn’t be a lot of work to do when the market opens.

Unlike a lot of teams, the Chargers won’t be strapped by having to deal with a slew of their own free agents, as there are only a couple notable names on that list.

So, how exactly should general manager Tom Telesco attack free agency? What moves does the team need to make in order to get over the playoff hump that has kept them down since the 2013 season?

We’ve got you covered here. What follows is a sensible approach to free agency for the Chargers. It doesn’t contain any wild, blockbuster moves, but as stated above, this team doesn’t need to do what the Cleveland Browns are doing. That’s because this team is close, and the organization knows it.
