Michael Davis: LA Chargers

The LA Chargers may not be able to afford to re-sign Rayshawn Jenkins because of other moves they make, including re-signing Michael Davis this offseason. You could certainly make the case that Davis is the most important free agent for the Bolts this offseason and the Chargers cannot afford to let him walk.

The cornerback room is only getting older in LA and there are no other guarantees at the position. While I personally think Tom Telesco will keep them around, both Chris Harris and Casey Hayward are candidates to be cut to free up cap space this offseason.

MUST-READ: Justin Herbert’s perfect backup is now available

Davis stepped up his game in 2020 and deserves the pay raise as well. He has proven to be a really solid CB2 for the team who could eventually blossom into a borderline CB1. He is more than just the speedster that commits holding penalties, he is someone who brings legitimate value to this team.

That, mixed with the positional need and the unlikelihood that the Chargers land a corner that will have an instant impact from the draft, makes Davis a must re-sign.

I predicted that Davis would get a three-year, $20 million contract, hopefully from the LA Chargers.
