The NFL Combine is officially in the books, serving as the catalyst for the NFL offseason to really get going. Following the Combine, there is going to be plenty of LA Chargers news that help shape what the team's roster will look like next season.
That being said, there was not as much Chargers news coming out of the NFL Combine as one may have expected. The Chargers are typically a team that operates in silence and the combine presented more of the same.
There is still some exciting things to share in our Chargers news roundup this Tuesday, even if most of it is not directly related to the Bolts' roster for the 2023 season.
Chargers news roundup:
- Chargers legend Philip Rivers reportedly reached out to the San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins last season about returning to play, per Rich Eisen. This is starting the speculation that Rivers could return to the league next season, with several teams potentially making sense for the future Hall of Fame quarterback.
