Like most teams in the NFL, the Los Angeles Chargers have a small handful of players that are facing a career crossroads.

The month of July is here which means that training camp will soon be underway. The Chargers have a roster that is thinking big but with 16-game schedule and the playoffs, it is going to take a full 53-man roster (and probably more) to reach the final stage of the season.

That means that every spot on the roster counts and any dead weight must be left by the wayside.

For the four players listed here, this season could easily be make-or-break in terms of their future with the team. Not coincidentally, each of these players could also key contributors in the team’s quest for a championship.

In fact, the Chargers may not be able to win the Super Bowl without getting the best from these players.

Some will be coming back from injury while others have yet to ever make an impact at the professional level. In another case, a player has performed well in the past but in more recent years, has regressed from a statistical standpoint and will need to prove that they can still be a factor on the field.

Do you have an idea of who these players are? Let’s take a look.
