The LA Chargers have had a busy offseason. Not only did the front office have to navigate a coaching change early in the offseason but the front office then had to build up the roster to help fit the vision that Brandon Staley had for the team.

It is safe to say that the front office did a fairly decent job. While we will not know for certain how good of a job they did until the season actually starts, the roster does appear to be in a better position and the Chargers are a legitimate Super Bowl dark horse.

There is a hierarchy of moves that the Chargers made with some being better than others, and some being not so great at all. Today, we look at the bright side.

Here are the four best moves of the offseason by the LA Chargers:

4. Signing Matt Feiler

Matt Feiler is a fantastic quality pickup for the LA Chargers as he should be someone that helps shore up the offensive line in 2021. Feiler is already a massive improvement at the guard position and if he can play up to his potential and stay healthy then the Chargers are in really good shape.

I would not go as far as to say that Feiler is a Pro Bowl-caliber guard but he certainly is someone who can be above-average and has provided above-average protection in his career before.

His advanced numbers as a whole are rather middle of the road but a lot of that is bogged down by his play at tackle. His versatility certainly is valuable, but Feiler was not good at tackle while being a really good guard historically in his career.

The best part is that the Chargers are only paying him an average of $7 million per season.
