The Chargers are coming off a second straight 9-7 season. They are not currently better than when they walked off the field in Kansas City on Dec. 28 so close yet so far from making it to the postseason. They are, by many measures, worse.
Peter King lists the Chargers as 1 of a possible 5 teams for a landing spot for Greg Hardy. King also states that teams believe Hardy will be suspended for the 1st 6 games of the season due to his domestic violence incident.
At least 2 other teams, New England and Minnesota, had expressed interested in Gachkar. He was on a visit in New England Sunday when he agreed to terms with the Cowboys.
The Chargers managed to turn undrafted running back Branden Oliver into a solid player last season, but neither he nor Danny Woodhead is close to the talent of Gordon. Reports have said the Chargers have spent a lot of time with Gordon, who would presumbably give them the best running back they've had since LaDainian Tomlinson.
The 6'5, 237 Green-Beckham ran a 4.49 at the NFL Combine, which makes him a bit of a poor mans Calvin Johnson in terms of dimension. However his legal troubles, and potential issues with marijuana will have many evaluators wondering if this is just another Josh Gordon situation all over again.
We were offseason "winners" every year, but that didn't lead to playoff runs or Super Bowls on the field. As a result, the draft classses suffered due to picks that were mortgaged during free agency, and the process would start all over again the following season.
