The Los Angeles Chargers approach the offseason with a very thin depth chart at the wide receiver position. Could they be looking to sign A.J. Green?

The Chargers need help at the wide receiver position. Besides stars Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, there are not many capable players in-house. That may prompt the Chargers to search for a WR3 and additional depth in free agency, the draft or both.

It is almost certain that the Chargers will draft at least one receiver, as Tom Telesco will probably look to bolster the wide receiver group in a very deep class at the position.

The free-agent class also has enough quality and quantity for the Chargers to search for a receiver with the characteristics they like.

Everyone believes the notion that the Chargers are trying to get people’s attention with a flashy, new quarterback, whether they mean Tom Brady, a trade up for Tua Tagovailoa or a trade for Cam Newton. But why not by signing a household name at wide receiver who is an unrestricted free agent?

A.J. Green has been relevant since he entered the league in 2011. He did so with a bang, getting his first 1,000-yard receiving season in his first try. He proceeded to break many franchise and league records over the next years, as well as winning people many fantasy championships with consistent year-by-year play.

So, should the Chargers sign or pass on Green?
