2. Bryce Callahan

Bryce Callahan would have been the best savvy signing that the Chargers made last offseason if it was not for Morgan Fox. Fox had a great season as a rotational interior pass rusher and earned a new two-year contract with the team because of it.

While Fox took the limelight as the best cheap signing, Callahan was more than solid for the Bolts. Coming off of a down year in which he dealt with injuries, Callahan proved in 2022 that he can still produce at a high level to an NFL defense.

Callahan's previous time with Brandon Staley and his familiarity with the Staley/Vic Fangio defense is what got him in the door in Los Angeles. The Chargers needed a slot corner after not drafting an NFL-ready one in the 2022 NFL Draft and Callahan provided just that.

While it might seem like a no-brainer to re-sign Callahan, the Chargers have to be cautious in not overpaying for past performance. Callahan is on the wrong side of 30 and older cornerbacks have a tendency to regress without warning.

With a likely cornerback coming in the 2023 NFL Draft as well as the blossoming Ja'Sir Taylor, Callahan's time in LA is likely over. Now, we just have to wait to see what his next team will be.
