Wide receiver: DeSean Jackson

The chances of the LA Chargers signing a wide receiver after signing Mike Williams to a new deal seems slim. However, with Andre Roberts' future with the team up in the air, the Bolts could sign a cheap veteran receiver to a one-year deal to add depth to the receiving corps.

After all, the Chargers only have four receivers on the roster and if Roberts comes back he does not add any offensive impact. It would not be the worst thing in the world to add depth to the position, although it seems more likely that the Chargers would use a day three pick to add that depth if needed.

If not, the most logical sense is DeSean Jackson because of how cost-effective he would be. Pro Football Focus projects Jackson to get a one-year, $4.5 million contract with only $1.5 million guaranteed. That is something the Chargers could commit to that would not break the bank.

Jackson still has value as a deep-ball threat and would give the team another deep-ball specialist next to Jalen Guyton. It could be valuable to the team to have that second option if Guyton gets hurt as well as simply having the option to turn to in certain matchups.

It seems very unlikely that the Chargers would spend anything more than what Jackson is worth on another wide receiver this offseason.
