The LA Chargers — alongside the entire AFC West — have had a busy offseason in 2022. Los Angeles bolstered the defense with the additions of J.C. Jackson and Khalil Mack while also rebuilding the defensive line and improving from Jared Cook to Gerald Everett.

The Las Vegas Raiders added a playmaker on both sides of the ball in Davante Adams and Chandler Jones, the Denver Broncos fixed their quarterback problem with Russell Wilson and the Chiefs are now in the mix to sign former Defensive Player of the Year, Stephon Gilmore.

While the Chargers' AFC West rivals have made some moves that are going to make the division much tougher in 2022, they have also made some moves that we could not help but laugh at.

Here are the offseason moves by the LA Chargers' AFC West rivals that made us laugh:

1. Kansas City Chiefs trade Tyreek Hill

Let's start with the low-hanging fruit, shall we? After failing to agree to terms on a new contract extension, the Kansas City Chiefs traded Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins for a slew of draft picks that included just one first-round pick.

Patrick Mahomes has now lost his most dangerous weapon and Tyreek Hill has not gotten any younger. Mahomes is elite and he will figure it out, but if one thing is for certain it is that Juju Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling do not come close to Tyreek Hill.

This is one less elite weapon that the Chargers have to deal with and suddenly, the Chiefs become much easier to game plan for. It is a lot easier to game plan for two slightly above-average receivers than it is to game plan for one elite receiver with game-breaking speed.
