The LA Chargers are about to embark on their most important under general manager Tom Telesco.

After a 9-8 campaign in 2021 that fell short of expectations given how the season started, the Bolts must find a way to provide second-year head coach Brandon Staley with players that are capable of bringing the Chargers their first-ever Super Bowl.

One of the first tasks the team must take care of is the ailing run defense. After an abysmal season that saw the Chargers give up the third most rush yards in the league, the front seven, particularly the defensive line, must be improved.

With starting DT Linval Joseph slated to hit free agency, coming off a rough second half of the season, and turning 34 during next season, the Bolts will likely head in another direction at the nose tackle position next season.

But who should the LA Chargers target to replace Linval Joseph?

In this article we'll take a look at three potential Linval Joseph replacements that the Chargers could acquire through free agency or the NFL Draft, breaking down why each player may be appealing to the front office and coaching staff.
