The Chargers were one of the few teams to execute a trade prior to the NFL’s trade deadline on Tuesday afternoon. That move sent defensive back Desmond King to the Titans in return for a sixth-round pick. It was not what Chargers fans expected to get for the former All-Pro but it was not a big sellers market this year.
As the deadline got closer and closer, the entire NFL landscape waited on the edge of their seats for any other bit of action to make all the anticipation worth it.
Unfortunately, there was no action in the final hours of the deadline.
But should there have been? Should the Bolts have continued being aggressive with their eyes set to the future, or were they right to keep their team as intact a possible for the here and now?
With this post, I want to hear what you all think of the Chargers’ lack of action at the deadline. Did you want to see another player moved for picks? Did you hope to acquire a player from another team?
Let us know in the comments below.
