Reason number 1: It's the defense that needs work
At this point, it’s practically impossible to name the best and youngest signal-callers in the game without mentioning Justin Herbert. After racking up over 5,000 passing yards and 38 TDs during the regular season, Herbert and the Chargers came absurdly close to locking in a spot in this year's playoffs.
Bringing Davante Adams on board would be a welcomed but unnecessary sight. The talent of the All-Pro receiver is undeniable. However, adding Adams would be like placing icing on a cake that is already filled to the brim with it.
As the season came to a close, the Chargers finished the year with an average of 27.9 points per game, good for fifth in the league. Simply put, the Chargers could score with the best of them. Ultimately, the Chargers need to place their energy and efforts on the defensive side of the ball.
Despite having Joey Bosa, Derwin James, and several other notable defensive names, the Chargers ranked just 29th in the league overall, giving up an average of 27 points per game.
Adams is great, make no mistake about it but the Chargers have plenty of weapons on offense with Mike Williams, Keenan Allen, and Austin Ekeler. If the Chargers want to turn things around, they’ll focus all of their attention on the defensive side of the ball.
