Linebackers and Denzel Perryman
The linebacker core this season has been very mediocre this season. We’ve seen players like Kyzir White do pretty well so far and Kenneth Murray has an alright rookie season so far.
The positive thing about this group is that they’re very young, but there’s still room for improvement in the core. One key player that needs to show up in the last games of the season is Denzel Perryman.
Even though he is the longest standing linebacker on the Chargers, Perryman has had a career filled with injuries. Perryman will become a free agent after this season and will have to prove that he can stay and be the veteran this core needs for the future.
Perryman had his best game this last week against the Jets recording four tackles and his first sack of the season. Throughout this season Perryman has recorded 30 combined tackles and two quarterback hits.
Perryman will look to show that he still has it as the season comes to an end. He will still consistently take starting snaps at the inside linebacker position the rest of the season, and hopefully, this will not be the last season for the hard-hitting linebacker out of Miami.
