Ideal LA Chargers right tackle: Bryan Bulaga

Bryan Bulaga is one year into a three-year contract that he signed with the LA Chargers last offseason and he is going to get at least one more season before the Chargers give up on him. Bulaga was banged up often last season and really did not get an extended look with the team.

When he did play he did not look like the same player that he was in Green Bay but that could have been because of the injuries and his inability to ever get consistent playing time. While he is far from an elite right tackle, he is a league-average right tackle at worst at this point in his career and the Chargers cannot afford to take a risk on someone else.

It really is Bulaga or bust at the right tackle position. They cannot cut him and free up money and with all the other holes on the line the team needs to hope that Bulaga can produce quality snaps in 2021.

I think he should. While I am not a fan of bringing in veteran linemen as they get injured often, I think last year was more of a case of bad injury luck than anything else and as long as that does not happen again then Bulaga should be decent at worst.

And if it does not work then the Chargers have next offseason to potentially cut him or bring in the right tackle of the future.
