2. Re-signing Mike Williams

One of the uncertainties heading into the offseason was the future of breakout receiver Mike Williams. Breaking 1,000 for the second time in his young career came at a perfect time for his contract extension. Signing him early was a big key in Telesco's free agency plan.

The timing was almost perfect, as other receivers such as Tyreek Hill, Stefon Diggs, and Davante Adams got massive contracts. Being able to get Mike Williams on an average of $20 million per year is a great price to pay for a player of his caliber.

The offense stays intact with Mike Williams' extension, giving Justin Herbert all but one of his favorite weapons going into the next year, where the Chargers appear to be poised to make some noise. Mike Williams getting this extension and his impact on the field puts him second on the list, with only one big signing to go.

1. Signing J.C. Jackson

One of the league's most prolific pass defenders signing with the Chargers on a five-year deal worth $82.5 million. A move that made the football media world explode in excitement certainly got Charger fans excited as well. A player who led the league in turnovers over the past two seasons, including 17 interceptions, is one of the best additions of the free agency window throughout the league.

With the signing of Jackson, as well as having other superstars on defense such as Khalil Mack, Derwin James, and Joey Bosa create a star-studded defense and one that teams will be scared of going into the season.
