The Los Angeles Chargers have been one of the NFL’s most active teams this offseason. The additions of players such as J.C. Jackson, Khalil Mack, and Zion Johnson will be felt immediately. This team has the potential to look drastically different with the start of the new season. 

But there are still areas on this team that could be improved. The offensive line lacks the depth that many of the league's top units have. While being led by Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, the wide receiver core has somewhat of a drop-off when looking past those two. If the Chargers can find a way to still address both these areas, they could solidify their roster even more.

Luckily enough, there are still several veteran free agents on the market who could be willing to join a team like the Chargers on a friendly deal. Whether it be due to them coming back from injury, or them trying to compete for a Super Bowl, Los Angeles could be a perfect landing spot. 

Here are three free agents the Los Angeles Chargers could still add:

Eric Fisher, OT

Former number one overall pick Eric Fisher is still good enough to make an impact on any team he joins. After spending the first eight years of his career with the Kansas City Chiefs, Fisher spent the 2021 season with the Indianapolis Colts.

In his lone season in Indianapolis, he posted an offensive grade of 68.2 according to PFF. He finished the season playing 874 total offensive snaps. He allowed a total of 41 offensive pressures and posted the second-best run-blocking grade of his career with a 73.3.

Throughout his nine NFL seasons, Fisher has been one of the game's more consistent offensive linemen He has played in 8,052 career snaps, with 6,975 of them coming at the left tackle position. In this time, he has allowed just 43 career sacks. 

While the Chargers have made improvements on both sides of the ball, they could still look to add another veteran tackle. With Rashawn Slater confidently locked in at left tackle, the right tackle spot could still be up in the air. At the moment, it seems to be Storm Norton’s spot to lose. 

Norton is coming off of a season where he posted an offensive grade of 60.2. There is still room for improvement from a player just now entering his third year, but having a solid veteran behind him could be extremely beneficial. Fisher has over 1,000 career snaps at right tackle and could help the entire offensive line with his experience.
