LA Chargers’ most experienced players: 3. Mike Pouncey, 114 games started

Mike Pouncey narrowly edges out Bryan Bulaga to be the third-most experienced player on the LA Chargers roster as he has three more games played than the veteran right tackle. This puts Pouncey in the top 100, as he is tied for the 92nd-most games played in the NFL.

Pouncey actually started his career a year after Bulaga but his advantage is that he has started every single game that he has played in the NFL. Bulaga actually has more total games played at 115, but Pouncey has appeared and started in 114 games.

Pouncey would have had a more comfortable lead if he would have played last season for the Bolts. He only played five games last season and was not great in those five games, which is a big reason why the offensive line struggled.

There were concerns around if Pouncey would even play or not in 2020 after neck surgery but he has been cleared by doctors, which is a promising sign not just for the Chargers but for Pouncey’s health.

Pouncey is the one player from the 2019 Chargers that joins Ingram on this list, although he certainly is not very experienced with the team itself. Pouncey has spent two years on the Chargers and has started 21 games with the Bolts.

That is still more than the two-most experienced players on the LA Chargers roster, as neither have even suited up for the Bolts.
