Here is a free agency recap for the Los Angeles Chargers. After barely missing the playoffs a year ago, the Chargers made some small moves to try to put them over the hump. They signed C Mike Pouncey to improve their offensive line, which was one of their main weaknesses a year ago. They signed him for 2 years/$15M, which is great value for someone of Pouncey’s caliber. They did signed K Caleb Sturgis. While this may not seem like a big deal, it is considering how many games they lose due to missed kicks a year ago. Los Angeles is banking on Sturgis to returning to his form coming off an injury, and could be rewarded significantly if he does. The Chargers made few significant moves, so it was hard to move that was “bad”. The closest thing to that was signing Geno Smith. They gave Smith a multi year deal, when they could’ve just drafted a quarterback, such as Luke Falk. Also, Smith is not an ideal fit for the Chargers offense, as he’s a much different QB than Phillip Rivers. Possibly focusing more on defense should’ve been a priority, especially at linebacker. Luckily for them, Mychal Kendricks was recently released by the Eagles. Kendricks would give the Chargers they playmaker they need in their linebacking core, and they should definitely go sign him. Overall, the Chargers didn’t make a ton of moves in free agency, which could come back to haunt them. Nonetheless, they made some quality moves, and look poised to make a playoff push this season.
