With free agents flying off the shelves like bread before a blizzard, the San Diego Chargers didn't do much of anything in Day 1 of NFL Free Agency 2013. Here's the run-down.
- Nick Novak, K
- Mike Windt, LS
- John Phillips, TE
- King Dunlap, OT
- Fozzy Whittaker, RB
- Louis Vasquez, G (Broncos)
- Antonio Garay, DT/DE (released)
- Randy McMichael, TE (released)
Is that an exciting first day? No, not really. There are still 3-4 huge holes along the offensive line and the secondary is still empty.
Losing Vasquez hurts a lot, and losing him to the AFC West Champion Denver Broncos hurts even more. Dunlap doesn't seem to be talented enough to be a starter, and also seems like a poor fit for a zone blocking scheme. John Phillips is just a guy, not someone to get excited about.
I know it's just one day, but a lot of NFL teams used that day to get better and the San Diego Chargers were not one of them.
