The Los Angeles Chargers upcoming offseason will be the most important one Tom Telesco has overseen in his nine year tenure as general manager.
Now that QB Justin Hebert has fully emerged as a premier talent in the league, the Chargers have three years left to pounce on his remaining rookie contract. With a lot of success emulating around the league from teams capitalizing on their signal-callers rookie deal, now is the time for LA to load up their roster with optimal amounts of talent to make a run at the Lombardi trophy.
With a projected $62 million in salary cap room before any roster moves, the Bolts currently have the league's 2nd most cap space heading into free agency.
Now, when it comes to free agency, the biggest spenders don't always reap the benefits of their investment. However, if spent wisely, free agency can haul entire units on rosters, and turn teams from pretenders into contenders. If you need any reassurance of this, see the Cincinnati Bengals who are playing in the Super Bowl just one season after revamping their defense through a plethora of smart free agency moves.
In this offseason, Telesco and the Chargers must be sure they spend their money properly and not irresponsibly. One way to optimize your money is by handing out bargain level contracts to players who end up being massive contributors to the squad.
In this article, I'll discuss three bargain free agents the Los Angeles Chargers should target, all of which I believe will hit the open market, be available at a low cost and have massive impact on the field.
