3. Nick Vigil

The LA Chargers added some notable new faces in free agency this season. On the defensive side of things, the Chargers added a great veteran defensive tackle in Linval Joseph and a former All-Pro cornerback in Chris Harris.

Offensively, the team made its best free-agent addition (in my opinion) in long-time Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga. Then you have the wild-card names that are talked about quite a bit in Donald Parham and Storm Norton, both coming from the XFL.

Heck, at the linebacker position we are even talking a lot about rookie Kenneth Murray and his first-year impact, whether or not Drue Tranquill can take that next step and what Denzel Perryman’s role on this team looks like.

There is not a lot of chatter around Nick Vigil.

Perhaps that is because the acquisition of Vigil kind of flew under the radar and feels smaller compared to the other additions that the team made. Maybe it is because Vigil is not really elite it any one thing, but is an all-around serviceable linebacker.

Regardless, Vigil is an important member of the Chargers’ defense as he adds depth to the linebacker position and is someone who recorded over 100 combined tackles last season. If there is one thing the Chargers can always use it is depth and Vigil supplies solid linebacker depth.
