Chargers trade targets: NFC, continued

Mohamed Sanu, Wide Receiver

This isn’t a move that would blow the AFC wide open for the Chargers, but it may become necessary given the injuries to the team.

With Mike Williams and Travis Benjamin already held out of the game, Philip Rivers watched as another one of his receivers, Dontrelle Inman, was forced out with a quad injury.

The Falcons are stumbling this season, with their coach on potentially the hottest seat in the NFL right now. If the team starts to look a different direction, especially with all their injuries, could they opt to move the veteran?

Sanu isn’t a guy who will dominate snaps and targets, but he’s a fairly consistent option, posting over 650 yards in each of his three seasons with the Falcons. He’s a veteran who could slide into a role similar to the one Inman had, should he miss time. And, though not a burner, he’s more reliable than Travis Benjamin at this point.

And hey, this would be kind of fun:

Next. Why can't the Chargers trade for Trent Williams?

Those are four options on four teams that range from terrible to disappointing. Some are much bigger blockbusters, while others fill roles that may just be temporary. Each provides something the Chargers could use, whether it be a short-term fill-in or a key piece for a Super Bowl run. What other players could the Chargers look to swipe from losing teams?
