LA Chargers Roster: 3 positions with the most concern post-cuts
By Jason Reed
3. Wide receiver
This might not be what you expected to see considering the LA Chargers have one of the best receivers in the league in Keenan Allen and a 1,000-yard partner alongside him in Mike Williams that makes up one of the best receiver duos in the league.
The concern with the receiving room, and it is not really a problem, just a concern, is that there is no tangible NFL experience behind Allen and Williams. With Williams potentially getting hurt, that lack of experience could be exposed.
Now, that does not mean it is a surefire thing to get exposed. Joe Reed, Jalen Guyton or even K.J. Hill could prove to be hugely impactful guys behind Williams. We just cannot expect that to be a guarantee since they are not high-round draft picks and Guyton has never been more than a fringe roster guy.
When both Allen and Williams are healthy this probably won’t even matter. The passing targets are going to go down as a whole and the Chargers have two other great weapons in other areas in Hunter Henry and Austin Ekeler.
However, I still would not be fully comfortable with the team’s depth at the wide receiver position until I see in action. Until then, it absolutely is fair to have some concerns behind Allen and Williams.
Those concerns are amplified whenever a prominent target is hurt. Hopefully, that does not become an issue.
