Despite looking like the perfect fit, the LA Chargers were not the team to come away with Julio Jones after weeks of speculation. The Tennessee Titans traded a measly second and fourth-round pick for the future Hall of Famer and it is a price that the Chargers are foolish to not match.
It is what it is and the Bolts seemingly do not view the wide receiver position as one that needs an upgrade. While it is definitely fair to be high on this receiving corps, if you can add a Hall of Famer to the mix then you do it every single time. But I digress.
With the Jones boat now sailed some Charger fans have turned their attention to another star receiver: Green Bay’s Davante Adams. Adams if a free agent after the 2021 season and has formed a nice relationship with Keenan Allen, as both guys are vastly overlooked by NFL pundits.
This relationship is the catalyst for the conversation around Davante Adams potentially coming to LA. And quite frankly, it is a conversation that fans should not even be having.
Davante Adams joining the LA Chargers is extremely far-fetched.
Sure, it is fun to dream up what an Allen-Adams receiving duo would look like, especially with the fact that Mike Williams is a free agent next offseason. It seemingly makes perfect sense for the Chargers to pivot from Williams to Parker, which would undoubtedly be an upgrade.
I simply want to stop Charger fans while they are ahead. While it was fair to speculate over Jones, speculating over a receiver a year ahead of time, especially when said receiver is unlikely to come to your team, is only setting up for disappointment.
Let’s break down why it is far-fetched.
