The LA Chargers had a pretty eventful first week of NFL free agency. While the week did not consist of the massive names that were brought in last March, the team still checked multiple boxes en route to a solid week overall.

Nothing is perfect, though, and there are some cheap free agents that ended up signing with other teams that could have been great additions to the powder blue. Whether or not the Chargers actually regret missing out on these players will play out during the 2023 season. But there is a decent chance they will regret it.

3 early free agents the Chargers may regret not signing:

Noah Brown

There were plenty of reasons to bring Noah Brown into the fold. First of all, the roster currently only has three wide receivers. Three. Two of those wide receivers missed time with injury last season and the lack of depth in LA was evident.

Brown also has ties to new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, who coached him on the Dallas Cowboys. While Brown probably wanted to find a team that could give him more snaps, he also could have done big things in Moore's offense if used properly.

He ultimately found a team where he will likely get more snaps in the Houston Texans, signing a one-year, $2.5 million contract. He may not be the speedster that the Chargers need and is a bit redundant with Mike Williams but there is no such thing as too much depth.

In a very thin wide receiver free-agent class and needing to add multiple wide receivers to the roster, it is a surprise that the Chargers didn't bring in a receiver with ties to the new OC.
