Brent Celek

Brent Celek spent so much time with the Philadelphia Eagles that he once caught passes from Donovan McNabb. Following the team’s Super Bowl win this past January, the Eagles parted ways with Celek after 11 seasons with the team.

He took a back seat in recent seasons to Zach Ertz and would see limited snaps during games, but Celek has almost 400 career catches and 31 touchdowns to his name. He can also block and would bring a veteran presence to the team.

He recently turned 33 years old and may not have a ton of gas left in the proverbial tank, but on a one-year deal, the Chargers could do a lot worse.

Marcedes Lewis

Like Celek, Marcedes Lewis has spent his entire career with one team. A first-round pick in 2006, Lewis spent the last 12 seasons playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars. During that time, he posted 375 catches for 4,502 yards and 33 touchdowns.

At 6-6, he would give Rivers the kind of target he loves to throw to, particularly in the red zone.

Lewis just turned 34 years old but could still have something to offer a team. If nothing else, he’d have a wealth of knowledge to pass on.
