4. Kyle Van Noy, EDGE/ILB

It would not be totally surprising if Kyle Van Noy is not on the LA Chargers next year. Bryce Callahan is a prime candidate to leave because of his age and you can make the exact same argument about Van Noy for the exact same reason.

That being said, Callahan is likely going to get a larger deal in free agency as corners typically warrant more when they are going off of a solid season. Van Noy's value in free agency did not increase from what it was last year so the Chargers shouldn't get priced out.

As a cheap depth option, Van Noy still brings value to this team. He showed that he can have a tangible impact on defense late in the regular season and brings a much larger impact to the locker room as a leader as well.

Inside linebacker depth might be shaky next season so we could see Van Noy playing there more than on the edge, especially if the Bolts use early draft capital to secure an edge rusher in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Regardless, the Chargers need to fill out a roster of 53 players and if they have both the space on the roster and on the books then retaining Van Noy is a better move than signing someone else to come in.
