Not all of the LA Chargers’ offseason moves were excellent ones.
The LA Chargers had a fairly solid offseason. The team lost long-time veteran quarterback Philip Rivers and was able to quickly wipe that feeling away and that is not even the biggest narrative surrounding the team any longer.
General manager Tom Telesco went to work and brought in several new faces to the roster that, overall, improved the outlook of the team. Sure, Rivers is gone, but as a whole, the LA Chargers look to be in a good spot for the future.
Telesco capped off a productive offseason by extending Joey Bosa to a record-setting five-year contract. What a perfect way to cap off an offseason and ensure that the face of the defense does not leave next offseason.
It was a great offseason, but it was not a perfect one. Granted, I benefit from the use of hindsight, which Telesco cannot operate with during the moment. However, even now, before games even begin, there are some questionable offseason moves that don’t make too much sense in hindsight.
Maybe I am missing the bigger picture, maybe the motivation shifted or maybe I will end up being proved wrong and look silly (it wouldn’t be the first time). Regardless, here are three offseason moves from the LA Chargers that already do not make sense in hindsight.
