3. Jarvis Landry

To be fair, Jarvis Landry is someone who the Chargers probably could have afforded without doing all of these bold restructures. He is not going to be all that expensive this offseason as he is projected to get a one-year, $3 million contract in free agency.

Landry did not have a fantastic season for the New Orleans Saints last season but he also had one of the worst quarterback situations in the entire league. Landry showed early in the season that he can still produce and he certainly could help bolster the Chargers' receiver room.

The Chargers are very thin at wide receiver as it currently stands with only three NFL receivers on the roster. Los Angeles needs to get that room to at least five deep and one of those additions is going to be in the 2023 NFL Draft (or it should be).

The fifth option could very well end up being a veteran like Landry (especially if the rookie that is drafted has special teams value as a returner). At only $3 million it would suit the Chargers to get a veteran that can provide depth and still produce quality snaps as a slot receiver.

We saw way too many injuries last season and while it should not be as bad as it was in 2022, injuries are inevitable. The Chargers are better off having someone like Landry to fall back on rather than a completely unproven player.
