Re-sign Tyrell Williams

The Chargers really need to bring Tyrell Williams back into the fold.

Williams in the clear No. 3 receiver for the Bolts, but he is essential to the offense. His ability to stretch the field and get open behind the secondary helps keep defenses honest and makes life easier for Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. When defenses pay too much attention to those two players, Williams is the favorite deep-ball target for Rivers.

He caught 41 passes for 653 yards this past season and though his numbers have dropped in each of the last three seasons, that doesn’t make him any less more important. It actually speaks more to his ability to play his role perfectly and allow former first-round pick Mike Williams to grow and develop.

Probably the most important reason to bring Williams back is due to the fact that there isn’t any depth behind him. And no, Travis Benjamin is not an answer.

The trie of Allen and both Mike and Tyrell Williams is the best combination for the Chargers next season. Rivers loves throwing the ball to all three guys and adding a healthy Hunter Henry into the mix will make the Chargers’ passing attack even more dangerous.

Re-signing Williams should be one of Telesco’s top priorities this offseason.
