After interviewing several offensive coordinator candidates over the last two weeks, the LA Chargers ultimately found their man for the job in Kellen Moore. Moore and the Cowboys agreed to part ways, with the Chargers quickly swooping in and making the hire official.

Changes will come with Moore, including several favorites to join his coaching staff on the offensive side of the ball next season. There are also players on the Cowboys roster who could follow Moore to be part of the Chargers next season.

Los Angeles does not have much cap space to utilize (currently $20 million over the cap before making cuts and restructures). The team is not going to be able to sign big-name free agents like Tony Pollard or Dalton Schultz. However, there are still affordable options to bring in.

3 Cowboys free agents who could follow Kellen Moore to Chargers:

1. Cooper Rush

The LA Chargers are going to need a backup quarterback for the 2023 season. Chase Daniel is likely heading for retirement and Easton Stick was not trusted to be the backup before so he likely won't be re-signed after his rookie contract expired.

There is a chance that the Chargers take a quarterback late in the 2023 NFL Draft to have a cheap, cost-controlled option for the next four years. But with Moore now in time, it opens the door for Rush to follow his offensive coordinator to LA to back-up Justin Herbert.

This would be a solid situation for the Bolts as they would get a backup that could come in and hold the fort down if Herbert needs to take time away. Perhaps in this case the Chargers wouldn't have to rush Herbert back from a rib injury that probably should have kept him out for at least a week or two.
