NFL: Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Reliable depth is key for the Chargers season - Tyler Gallagher
Of course, when it comes down to it, the team needs to play whoever will put W’s in the win column. As we found out last year, every single win matters, especially when you are in the same division as the Kansas City Chiefs. Salvaging a win against the Denver Broncos could have changed the course of the season.

Top 10 NFL players over 35 years old entering the 2019 season - Austin Gayle
Davis turned in three consecutive seasons with 88.8 coverage grades in the prime of his career (2013-15), and though the now 36-year-old veteran hasn’t earned a single-season coverage grade above 75.0 since, he’s still a capable starter with much-needed skills in today’s NFL. He may have lost a step or two since his hay day, but his play recognition and above-average athleticism should still pay dividends, specifically in coverage, for the 2005 first-rounder with the Bolts in 2019.

Do the Chargers have a two-year roster plan? - Tyler Schoon
The Chargers will not be forced to re-sign many of their star players following the 2019 season, either. Other than Philip Rivers and Melvin Gordon, the Chargers don’t have much pressure to retain their free agents next year. Mike Pouncey is also a candidate to be re-signed, but the team will likely wait to see how his second year with the team goes as he approaches age 31. Hunter Henry will have to show he is worth retaining (he is) following a lost 2018 campaign.

Los Angeles Chargers: A look at team's defensive line depth chart - Travis Wakeman
Tom Telesco went into free agency with a specific approach, deciding to re-sign the most experienced defensive lineman he had in Brandon Mebane. Meanwhile, Damion Square, Darius Philon and Corey Liuget were left to look for work elsewhere, though Square was recently brought back.

Chargers OTA Report: Anthony Lynn Passes Power to the Players - Chris Hayre
“Our players – like I said today – they were doing an outstanding job of pulling guys aside and just coaching them up on how we practice and how we do things,” Lynn said. “That’s where I like to see it come from because at the end of the day, we’re going to go as far as they take us.”
