Not Re-signing Rayshawn Jenkins – LOSS for the LA Chargers
This player, in my opinion, was one of the priorities the LA Chargers needed to focus on during the free agency period.
While a lot of people argued that Rayshawn Jenkins was inconsistent, I would say that he was still a big piece in that secondary. Jenkins started in almost all games during the last two seasons except for one last season. He also had five interceptions the last two seasons with eight pass deflections and 92 total tackles.
It would’ve also been an exciting safety duo with James and Jenkins. Both high flying safeties that could’ve been exhilarating to watch. Especially since Michael Davis will be back, the group could’ve been very young and very fast. All the signs pointed towards adding Jenkins to the roster for the 2021 season, and to not sign him was a mistake.
I personally believe that the Chargers will most likely have to draft a safety to replace Jenkins if Adderley doesn’t pan out. Jenkins had so much to improve on and was already solid at the position. It was a big mistake to let him go, and hopefully, they can find a solid replacement to help out Derwin at the position.
