Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports – LA Chargers
The 2021 NFL Draft is nearly upon us and once it passes we will have a much better outlook at the LA Chargers‘ roster for the 2021 season as beyond. As it currently stands, there are some noticeable holes that the team did not address in free agency that it will likely address in the draft.
There is still the possibility of bringing in some free agents as well. According to Daniel Popper of The Athletic, the Chargers have around $11.35 million in spending space, which factors in the money spent on the draft pool as well as necessary in-season moves.
That is enough to sign two or even three free agents after the draft and that might be the plan all along for the Chargers. See who the team gets in the draft and then use the remaining free agents to fill in the holes.
Regardless, a more complete roster will exist a month from now and then the focus turns to training camp and which players might be on the hot seat. There are already some players on the hot seat before the draft.
Some players currently signed to the LA Chargers likely won’t survive summer roster cuts.
The LA Chargers are not going to cut any big-name players in the summer but they will be targeting certain positions with depth that could add even more depth in the draft or free agency.
Here are three players who likely won’t survive summer roster cuts and they all have something in common: their position will likely be added to in the coming weeks.
