Michael Gallup makes sense for the Chargers

The wide receiver room in LA is pretty barren after releasing Mike Williams and trading Keenan Allen. The current room consists of Joshua Palmer, Quentin Johnston and Derius Davis; it might just be the worst room in the entire sport.

The Chargers are undoubtedly going to add a wide receiver in the 2024 NFL Draft and will likely do so with the fifth overall pick. Malik Nabers or Marvin Harrison Jr. are not enough to save this room alone as the team would benefit from adding another veteran for depth purposes.

Odell Beckham Jr. is the biggest name on the market and he may seem like the most likely because of his ties to the Baltimore Ravens. If Beckham is cheap enough then the Chargers might just sign the former first-round pick to essentially be the team's WR3 next season.

The main problem is that Beckham will likely still cost most of the Chargers' budget. He shouldn't get what he got last year from the Ravens but it would not be surprising to see him sign a one-year deal for $8 million. That is probably the price floor.

Michael Gallup, on the other hand, should be much cheaper and can probably be signed for less than $5 million. His recent numbers may not be the most impressive but he has ties to this coaching staff (wide receiver coach Sanjay Lal) and he can still add value as a WR3/4 depth option.

At the very least, Gallup is a good at making contested, tough catches. He may not be Mike Williams, but he would at least give the team a similar skill set to Williams.
