The Los Angeles Chargers had a tumultuous season in 2019 after advancing to the Divisional Round in 2018. It’s safe to say that this offseason is going to be an eventful one for the Chargers.
First and foremost, the Philip Rivers era is seemingly going to come to an end. Rivers is an impending free agent and Los Angeles has shown that they are willing to move on from the veteran signal-caller.
Besides Rivers, Melvin Gordon is also set to hit free agency for the Chargers. Just last offseason, Gordon was holding out for an extension, but the team never showed any interest in giving in to his demands.
At the least, Los Angeles begins the offseason with $51.7 million in cap space, according to Spotrac. That is more than enough money for the Chargers to better the roster for next season.
With the Super Bowl coming to a close, every team can now shift their focus to free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft. In light of that, here are three steps to a perfect offseason for the Chargers.
