The LA Chargers are going to be one of the biggest spenders in free agency this offseason with ample cap space that can grow to $100 million if the Chargers play their cards right. This is such an important offseason with Brandon Staley and Justin Herbert entering their second season together and the Bolts must take full advantage.
There are several different areas of need for the Chargers to address and various different ways that the team can address those needs. With 11 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Bolts could look to target certain areas in the draft, ignoring that specific need in free agency.
Or the team could look to find most of its starting-caliber replacements in free agency and utilize the draft for depth. The team could go star hunting, or it could look to bring in multiple quality players instead of one big player. You get the point. The Chargers have a lot of flexibility.
One thing the LA Chargers may try and do is steal free agents from fellow AFC West teams.
If there is a free agent from another AFC West team that the Bolts are interested then they might jump on that player to improve their own roster while worsening the other roster. The Denver Broncos might be the most likely team to steal from with Brandon Staley's connection to the team and the fact that the Bolts have done it before.
With Vic Fangio being fired, the Broncos are starting a new era and the Chargers could try and scoop up some of the defensive players that Fangio brought in for Staley to work with. Let's dive into the three free agents that the LA Chargers could steal from the Denver Broncos.
