Chargers looking for a new contract: Part three

Hunter Henry

Why keep him: He’s arguably the most valuable offensive skill player on the team, capable of being both a blocking lineman, a safety blanket, and a red zone stud for Philip Rivers.

Why not: Injuries. If Henry can’t play because he can’t get on the field, the Chargers may have to move on, as they did with Verrett.

Adrian Phillips

Why keep him: He’s got the best underdog story of any player on the roster, fighting through what seems like dozens of roster cuts to become an All-Pro last year. If anyone deserves a contract, it’s Phillips.

Why not: Phillips surprisingly did not get a muti-year deal from someone this past offseason, but if the All-Pro can play like one again, there’s no way someone isn’t lining up to give this guy a good chunk of cash to play for their team. Telesco may have to make a tough decision.

Trevor Williams

Why keep him: At one point, Williams was a top-15 corner in the league, with a career year in 2017 opposite Hayward. If he can return to form, now fully healthy, he’s absolutely worth retaining.

Why not: Unfortunately, 2018 was a down year, due to declined play and injuries; how much the two correlate with each other remains to be seen. Davis is also going to have a chance to start this season (he likely will), which could make Williams expendable.
