This is just to start a fun discussion with less than two weeks left until the start of the 2020 NFL season. The Chargers had enough money to sign either Jason Peters or Kelvin Beachum when both were still available but decided to stay put.
Below is a list from Spotrac that includes 15 of the top free agents left on the market. My simple question is, are there any available players that you would like to see the Chargers sign before the season? Which ones are actually realistic options, if at all?

While a number of these names would be great to see in the powder blue, it’s tough to justify many of them. I initially look at the offensive linemen, and then instantly become depressed. Not many great options.
But what thoughts do you all have about the current free agents? Would you like to see the team make one more move or are you content with the current roster? Let us know.
