Kenneth Murray

This all depends on how the Chargers view Kenneth Murray internally this season and heading into the future. Transparently, we would not be fans of trading Murray as he has quietly been good for the Chargers this season and might be part of future plans for the Bolts.

But if the team has no plans on keeping him around anyway after the 2023 season then it might as well try to capitalize on his solid season and get something for him on the trade market. The worst-case scenario would be letting Murray walk for absolutely nothing like both Drue Tranquill and Kyzir White did. It is unlikely that Murray would sign a big enough deal to get a compensatory pick in return.

Murray certainly has played well enough to entice teams who are looking for an athletic downhill linebacker. The price for Murray won't be expensive, especially if the Chargers are outright shopping him, but the team could still get a late-round pick for him.

Plus, it would open the door earlier for other options. This would give Daiyan Henley a chance to actually get NFL reps in his rookie season to prepare him for the future. If the Chargers plan on going that direction anyway then the team might as well kickstart it early and get assets.

But again, it all depends on how the Chargers view Murray and what the long-term plan is for him. With the way he has played this season, it would not be surprising if the Chargers actually re-signed the 2020 first-round pick.
