3. Focus on improving the secondary
The LA Chargers have a lot of decisions to make about the secondary in 2021. From the safeties to the cornerbacks, the front office is going to have to weave through this challenge perfectly to not just retain the talent in house but to improve on it.
Neither player is going to demand a large contract and the Chargers cannot simply replace what they bring to the table in the NFL Draft with so many other needs.
However, they can still draft a cornerback, which is likely in the first three rounds. Casey Hayward has really regressed this season as he and Chris Harris are not getting any younger. Both men can be cut in the offseason to save salary cap space and it would be surprising if both make it to next year’s roster.
The secondary has already had its hiccups this season and the team cannot afford to let it get even worse next season; or else the Chargers will find themselves in a very similar situation yet again.
