The LA Chargers have been fairly active in free agency thus far. While some outlets may have expected more out of the Chargers, it is really hard to complain about who the team has brought in thus far.

The Chargers made Corey Linsley the highest-paid center in free agency history, brought in two great-valued offensive line pieces in Matt Feiler and Oday Aboushi and re-signed Michael Davis. That quartet of moves alone is solid for the Bolts.

Sure, it hurts losing Hunter Henry and replacing him with an aging veteran who is only getting worse in Jared Cook as well as not signing another marquee corner like Kyle Fuller, but the offseason is still incomplete. We should reserve complete judgment in those areas until the Chargers are done making moves and the 2021 NFL Draft has passed.

Regardless of what happens next, there are certain players on the LA Chargers who have benefitted tremendously.

Whether it being getting help from the new additions or getting a bigger role than expected due to the lack of additions, there are three players on the LA Chargers that notably benefitted the most from who the team decided to bring in (and let go) thus far.

Let’s get into them, with the first player being painfully obvious.
