What past great from the Chargers would you add to the roster?

NFL: New Orleans Saints at San Diego Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

A couple weeks ago a question was posed on if you could add a former great from your favorite team to the current roster, who would it be? I like to poke the bear so I jokingly said Drew Brees. You can go a number of different ways, though. With the recent injury news to Hunter Henry, I might slide prime Antonio Gates in there.

I don’t care how much you love him or think he needs more chances, I’m replacing Melvin Gordon with that running back who wore #21 before you can finish saying LaDainian Tomlinson. Holy hell can you imagine LT in today’s passing NFL? He somehow would be better.

I know many will bring up Jamal Williams. If I’m taking an interior defensive lineman from those teams I’m taking Luis Castillo. Castillo getting all those 1-on-1’s with Bosa and Ingram off the edge? Yes please. Speaking of pass rushers, Shawne Merriman for those couple years anyone? You can put yo or I on the field as the 4th rusher and we might be able to get some sacks.

Junior. Rodney Harrison. Lance Alworth. Winslow. The list goes on and on and on.

Who are you taking?
