The revolving door of the Chargers roster has been very busy this offseason. There have been a lot of notable players who have left the team and found new homes this offseason, as well as new faces who are coming in to replace those now-former Chargers.

This offseason has not been as active for all former Chargers, though. There are several players who recently donned the powder blue and are still looking for a new home this offseason. Heck, if things break the right way, that new home could be back in LA.

There is still a lot of offseason left until the start of the 2024 season but not being signed in the first two weeks of free agency is always a concern. Here are the former Chargers who find themselves in this concerning position.

5 former Chargers who are still without a job:

Adrian Phillips

Letting Adrian Phillips walk in free agency is one of the most frustrating things that Tom Telesco ever did as GM of the Chargers. Phillips had an All-Pro season with the Chargers and while he may not have been a perfect defensive back, his versatility was extremely valuable.

The New England Patriots knew that as Bill Belichick brought Phillips in and made him an instrumental part of New England's defense. Phillips was never named an All-Pro again but he continued being an above-average defensive back who undoubtedly made the Pats better.

Now that he is on the other side of 30, Phillips was released by the Patriots and has still not been picked up by another team. Out of all the players on this list, Phillips might actually make the most sense to re-join the Chargers considering the team needs a third safety and overall defensive back help.

One can only hope that the Chargers reunite Phillips with his former Chargers teammates, namely Derwin James and Denzel Perryman. Maybe then some of that 2018 magic can come back to the Bolts.
