Overall grade:

Overall, the Los Angeles Chargers have had as good an offseason as anyone in the league. There has been a clear effort to go out and get more productive and versatile players on the roster. Harris Jr gives the defense much more versatility as he can be moved around and play in any role to create mismatches and wreak havoc in the secondary.

Joseph is an elite run-stopping defensive tackle, but he’s also very good as a pass rusher. Bulaga is as well rounded and versatile as any right tackle in the league. Throw in the trade for Trai Turner and you have four big-time upgrades on this roster.

Another clear theme from those four moves? The team is placing a high value on super bowl experience. Bulaga, Joseph and Harris each have won a super bowl with their previous teams and Turner played in one with the Panthers.

This trend makes sense because you want as many guys that have been there and done that as possible on your roster. Especially when you are looking at each of these players to be leaders at their position groups and on the team.
