Shortly following the NFL draft, the Bears released Slauson because they wanted to go with other linemen they added in free agency and the draft. Since the move was unexpected and Slauson is on the wrong side of 30, the Chargers upgraded their center position at a bargain. Slauson has split time in his career at guard and center and has allowed only six sacks over the past four years. In all seven years of his career, he has earned an above-average PFF Rating in run blocking. While Slauson might not be a top-five center in the NFL, he deserves to get paid like an above-average starting lineman, and yet there are plenty of backup offensive linemen who will be making more than Slauson this year.

The worst Faulconer was going to do was miss outright victory by a smidge and have to vie again in a November runoff.
