LA Chargers who are playing for their jobs: Nasir Adderley

This is not a case of the LA Chargers potentially parting ways with Nasir Adderley as it is with the first two players on this list. Adderley is not taking up much cap space next season and he will be entering his third season. There is a zero percent chance that the Chargers would cut him because at the worst, he provides depth.

However, he could play himself into a bigger role next season by playing well over these last four weeks. Of course, next year’s training camp will help solve some roster battles, but Adderley’s performance will have an influence on what the team does this offseason.

If Adderley can put together four really strong games to end the season then the Chargers will rightfully have more faith in him starting alongside Derwin James at safety. Rayshawn Jenkins is a free agent and he very well could be priced out of LA.

However, if Adderley continues playing at the level that he is playing then it is clear that Jenkins should be an offseason priority (personally, I think he should be a priority regardless).

Will the Chargers bolster the position and have Adderley as a depth piece? Or will they focus more on other areas of the roster and have faith in Adderley after a strong finish to the season?

The last four games will have a big influence on the direction that the team goes.
