1. Will Fuller

This would only make sense if the price was right for the LA Chargers as Will Fuller is a decently-big name in the NFL and could warrant a bigger market. However, Fuller has not been the most consistent in staying on the field in his NFL career and he is coming off of a season where he played just two games for the Miami Dolphins.

For that reason, Fuller could probably be had for a cheap, one-year prove-it deal. The longer that he goes unsigned the lower his value goes on the free-agent market and he could definitely wind up signing for a cap-friendly deal that is loaded with incentives to protect a team from him missing time.

Pro Football Focus projected that Fuller would get a one-year, $7.5 million contract before the offseason began. With Fuller still being unsigned in April, it appears that his value might be lower than that and the Chargers could very well get him for a cap hit under $5 million.

While Fuller has not always been able to stay on the field when he is on the field he has been great. He had a fantastic season as Deshaun Watson's deep-ball threat in 2020, picking up 879 yards on 53 catches. Fuller can play in the slot or outside and would be a perfect WR3/4 with speed to give the deep routes to next to Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Joshua Palmer.

And just for comparison's sake, Fuller ran a 4.32 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, which would be the top mark of any player on the Chargers.
