The LA Chargers haven't made a free-agent signing in a few weeks as the team instead might be waiting to see what positions it can add in the 2023 NFL Draft. Then, like last year, the Chargers could make savvy signings after the draft to complement the roster.
One need that is extremely pressing that might not be able to be fully addressed in the draft is wide receiver. LA only has three NFL-caliber receivers on the roster right now and while that number will undoubtedly grow in the draft, the Bolts still may need to add a free agent.
The options are not great right now and there is a real chance that LA simply looks to add speed in the receiver room in free agency, especially if Jalen Guyton is not returning.
Here are 3 free agent receivers that can still add speed to the Chargers offense:
3. Chosen Anderson
Chosen Anderson, formerly known as Robbie Anderson until 2023, is probably the most well-rounded receiver on this list and undoubtedly has the highest ceiling of the trio. That being said, he also has concerns that come with him as he has not necessarily been the best team player in his previous stops.
Tom Telesco is not someone who likes bringing in that kind of distraction and that alone could keep Anderson away from the Chargers. However, if he can prove that he won't be a distraction in LA and can convince the team to buy in then he would be a solid option.
Anderson ran a sub-4.4 40-yard-dash at the NFL Combine and is exactly the kind of receiver that Kellen Moore can put on a deep route to open up that area of the field. We also know that the Chargers typically value taller receivers, which only helps Anderson and his six-foot-three frame.
