LA Chargers: Three questions that still need to be answered
By Jason Reed
The LA Chargers have done a wonderful job at navigating the offseason thus far but still have some significant questions to answer about the roster.
The LA Chargers are doing exactly what a team should do when it is coming off of a disappointing season despite having a very talented core — the front office is adding pieces to the roster in order to maximize the results in 2020.
And thus far, it is hard to complain about the moves that Tom Telesco has made. He flipped Russell Okung for Trai Turner, retained both Hunter Henry and Austin Ekeler and signed Bryan Bulaga, Linval Joseph, Chris Harris, Nick Vigiland XFL tight end Donald Parham.
Every move has made sense, even the ones that the team did not make. Passing on Tom Brady was the better long-term option and parting ways with Philip Rivers and Melvin Gordon, while saddening in Rivers’ case, was the best-case scenario for both parties.
There is still a lot that can happen in the offseason and Charger fans should be hopeful that Telesco is going to make the right decisions and field a team in 2020 that is good enough to return to the playoffs.
He definitely is not finished in that goal, however, as there are still some lingering questions about the team and the roster that are going to need to be answered in the coming weeks and months.
Here are the three biggest questions that are still unanswered about the LA Chargers.
