The LA Chargers just lost perhaps the most embarrassing game in franchise history. After a dominating start led by Asante Samuel Jr, the Chargers went on to blow a 27-0 lead to the Jacksonville Jaguars. They are rightfully the butt of the joke as it is the third-largest blown lead in playoff history.

Practically the entire fanbase agrees that Brandon Staley's tenure as the head coach should come to an end. Staley has a great defensive mind but has not shown the ability to adjust and has made questionable decision after questionable decision. You don't lose Mike Williams in a needless game and then blow a 27-0 lead in the playoffs and keep your job.

Staley is not the only one that is going to be leaving Los Angeles. The Chargers have a lot of decisions to make with impending free agents and potential cuts this offseason. While more than five players will ultimately leave, there are five, in particular, that are guaranteed to leave.

5 players who just played their last snap with the Chargers

1. Nasir Adderley

To be fair to Nasir Adderley, he did not play much in his final game with the Chargers. Brandon Staley made the decision to bench Adderley in favor of Alohi Gilman, which tells you everything you need to know about his future with the team.

Adderley has had good moments in his career but for the most part, it has been pretty disappointing for the 2019 second-round pick. There are traits in Adderley that might be unlocked by another defensive mind but his time with the Chargers should probably come to an end.

This makes safety a key need for the Bolts, likely in the 2023 NFL Draft. It won't be a first-round need but with Adderley leaving and JT Woods not showing anything in his rookie season, more safety depth is needed.
