The LA Chargers are heading into one of the most important offseasons in team history. The Bolts have an elite quarterback in Justin Herbert who is still getting paid on his rookie contract and it is imperative that the front office capitalizes to give Herbert the best team around him moving forward.
The Chargers had the potential to be a playoff team and make a run but there were ultimately too many holes on the roster, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. With ample cap space to spend this offseason, that is going to likely be the main focus as the team looks to craft Brandon Staley's version of what this defense should look like.
However, that does not mean that the Chargers will completely disregard the offensive side of the football. There are several key decisions that the team is going to have to make to ensure that Herbert has all the help he needs around him on offense to continue being one of the top-scoring offenses in the league.
Some decisions will be easier than others for the LA Chargers.
There are certainly going to be a long list of tough decisions that the Bolts have to make throughout the offseason. Most of these decisions are dependent on each other as well. Who the team does and doesn't re-sign will impact who they pursue in free agency, which will determine who they pursue in the draft but who they like early in the draft process may impact who they want to re-sign in the first place.
It is a complex puzzle that Telesco and Staley are going to have to solve. However, every puzzle has four corner pieces that are easy to place and help build out the rest of the puzzle. The Chargers have four corner pieces when it comes to handling the offense this offseason and these decisions really should not take a second thought.
Let's dive into them.
