2. Not extending Keenan Allen
The LA Chargers have actually done really well on the business side of things both in the offseason and in camp. They rightfully used the franchise tag on Hunter Henry, came to terms on a record-setting extension with Joey Bosa and guaranteed Melvin Ingram’s 2020 salary, which they didn’t have to do.
Heck, it might get forgotten about now but in the beginning of the offseason, the Chargers signed Austin Ekeler to a deserving four-year extension as well.
In that regard that Bolts went 4-5 and if this was baseball then their batting average this offseason would make them the greatest hitter of all-time. However, it is the one out that still looms over the team.
That out is not coming to terms on a contract extension with Keenan Allen. Allen is the heart and soul of this offense and it will be worrisome if the team cannot come to terms with Allen and he is able to test the open market in the offseason.
Re-signing Keenan Allen is pivotal and while there is hope that the team will get it done at some point, it is a bit of a disappointment that they have not already, especially considering how proactive they have been with everything else on the business side.
