This is going to be a compelling offseason for the LA Chargers. Not only does the team have to find an offensive coordinator to replace Joe Lombardi but the front office also has to figure out how to get under the cap and still field a team that is better than the 2022 team.

According to Over The Cap, the Chargers are currently $19.9 million over next year's projected cap. The team has the flexibility to get under the cap but this means that the Bolts likely won't be very busy in free agency this year.

Los Angeles is still going to try and retain some of the impending free agents from the 2022 roster. That being said, there are also impending free agents that the Bolts will simply view as freed-up money and not someone to re-sign.

Here are 4 free agents the Chargers shouldn't bother trying to re-sign:

1. Nasir Adderley

Nasir Adderley has shown flashes of being really good throughout his four-year NFL career but at the end of the day, he has not been nearly consistent enough to warrant getting a second contract from the Bolts.

Even if the Chargers had the salary-cap space to comfortably bring Adderley back it probably would not be worth it. Adderley and the Chargers simply are not a fit together and it would have been better for both sides to move on.

Brandon Staley essentially signaled to the world in the Wild Card Round that Adderley's time with the Chargers was up after starting Alohi Gilman over him (and hardly giving Adderley any snaps). Hopefully, the 2019 second-round pick can thrive with his next team and build out a long NFL career.
