2. Virgil Geeen

The LA Chargers need to start looking at the long-term future of the tight end position so it might not seem wise to trade Virgil Green at this time. However, the Chargers could essentially parlay Green into value by focusing on the long-term future and maximizing any value Green has on the trade market.

Hunter Henry is on a franchise tag and is only guaranteed for the 2020 season and Green is in the last year of his deal. While the Chargers likely want to keep Henry around after 2020, this likely is going to lead to the team selecting a tight end late in the draft for depth and as a security blanket.

The team also brought in Donald Parham from the XFL. Parham had great tape in the XFL and has scary size and speed at the tight end position, but we fully cannot bank on him being an impact player until we see it against NFL action.

Regardless, I think there is a good chance that the Chargers draft a tight end, thus opening the door for the team to outright trade Green to a team that needs a tight end or include him in a bigger package that warrants more draft capital.

The Chargers would not be missing much. He does have an impact on the running game but he is easily replaceable as a pass-catching target.

The Chargers would be freeing up $2.7 million in cap space.
