3. Tyrann Mathieu

Tyrann Mathieu sulked off the field after taking on the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game. The multiple-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro selection was incredulous as the final score read 27-24 in favor of the Bengals.

It was a moment that Mathieu has a hard time processing but one that he’s slowly coming to grips with. The Super Bowl run of the Kansas City Chiefs felt like a perpetual one but now, they’ll be forced to go back to the drawing board and figure out what went wrong.

Mathieu’s though, could be looking to start a new dynastic run elsewhere and if Aaron Rodgers decides to join the Denver Broncos in an attempt to have his own Peyton Manning like finish to his career, the Chargers should pick up the phone and give Mathieu a call quickly.

With three consecutive trips to the Pro Bowl and back-to-back All-Pro nods in 2019 and 2020, Mathieu covers everyone on the back end of the Chiefs defense. Rodgers isn’t known for being incredibly audacious with the football, but when he is, he can torch a defense for huge chunk yards. Overall, the Chargers have to love their chances at not only taking down a possible Rodgers led Broncos squad but more than anything, adding Mathieu could give them a leg up on the Chiefs as well.
