1. Breshad Perriman

If the LA Chargers are simply looking to bring in someone with game-breaking speed then look no further than Breshad Perriman. Perriman is not as fast as he was at his peak but he has the kind of speed that has to be respected at the deep levels of the field. As a cheap Guyton replacement, Perriman would be more than enough for the Chargers.

Perriman ran a 4.25 40-yard dash way back at his NFL Combine showing and used that speed early on in his NFL career to be a legitimate threat. Between the 2019 and 2020 season, Perriman finished with 1,150 yards on 66 receptions for nine touchdowns.

For someone who is primarily a speed threat and is lower on the depth chart those are great numbers. If the Chargers were able to get that kind of production out of him as a WR4/5 then it would be a huge win.

Perriman's production has gone down the last two seasons in Tampa Bay as he was buried on the depth chart. He also did not have a quarterback with the greatest of arms that could sling it to the deep area of the field like Justin Herbert can.

Perriman is a bit on the older side at 29 years old but he would still be more than enough as a speed option that adds depth to the receiver room.
