It’s been a busy offseason for the LA Chargers and Denver Broncos alike. Bolt Beat and Predominantly Orange got together to discuss it.
The Denver Broncos and LA Chargers have been active in free agency and the draft, with the Chargers also being active in other stuff such as jersey reveals and stadium developments. It is fair to say both teams added a lot of talent, and they will be looking to get back over .500 after 7-9 and 5-11 seasons.
Neither team is ready to dethrone the Kansas City Chiefs yet, but both are building towards that with exciting young quarterbacks and great supporting casts.
The Chargers entered the offseason with needs all over the place, but they addressed most of them with quality free agents like Bryan Bulaga, Linval Joseph and Chris Harris Jr. They also got their quarterback of the future in Justin Herbert through the draft, as well as solid contributors on all three phases of the game in Kenneth Murray, Joshua Kelley and Joe Reed.
The Broncos, meanwhile, traded for quality defensive players like Jurrell Casey and A.J. Bouye, as well as signing free agents Graham Glasgow and former Charger Melvin Gordon to contribute on offense.
Then they proceeded to have a stellar draft in which they gave Drew Lock weapons such as Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler and his college tight end from Missouri, Albert Okwuegbunam.
