It is the dog days of NFL summer when not much is going on with the LA Chargers. OTAs have already passed and the month of July is all about waiting for training camp to officially begin. In honor of this, we decided to bring back a series that we did last summer as well.
We are taking a look at every NFL team in the league, division-by-division, and finding the one player from each team that would fit the absolute best on the LA Chargers in 2021. It is a fun hypothetical, as the Chargers will never get anyone on this list, to help give Charger fans some content during the dog days of summer.
Today we look at the AFC South and we will be comparing each answer to last year’s equivalent. If you want to read last year’s version you can find it here.
LA Chargers dream additions from each AFC South team:
Tennessee Titans: A.J. Brown
Last year’s choice: DaQuan Jones
When we ran this series last year we assumed that each player from the division would be joining the team, so with us selecting a different receiver, it made no sense to double down and take A.J Brown. We instead went with a positional need in defensive tackle DaQuan Jones.
We don’t overthink it this year and go with the best receiver on the Titans. Brown is coming off surgery to both of his knees so there is a concern there but he is a consensus top-15 or so wide receiver in the league and would give the Chargers the best receiving corps in football.
Just imagine a trio of Keenan Allen, A.J. Brown and Mike Williams with Justin Herbert throwing them passes. Allen could move to the slot with Brown and Williams on the outside and the Chargers would have three premier pass targets for one of the best young quarterbacks in the league.
