Good morning, everyone, and happy Wednesday to you all.
Continuing on the topic of pending free agents, I now want to gather your thoughts on what free agents outside of the Chargers that you would like to see the team pursue in the coming months.
There are plenty of talented players from the teams that previously employed Brandon Staley and those connections are always fairly important when predicting where they could end up by the start of the next season.
One of the players I believe the Chargers should take a good look at is Rams cornerback Darious Williams.
Williams was the team’s third cornerback behind Jalen Ramsey and Troy Hill but that didn’t stop him from leading the team with four interceptions and 14 pass breakups during the regular season. After a handful of years in the NFL as a former late-round pick out of Alabama-Birmingham, Williams finally broke out under Brandon Staley and I don’t think there’s any reason to believe he won’t continue to be successful underneath him going forward.

The Chargers cornerback room needs to get younger and I think this is the easiest way for them to get a proven player at the position without spending top dollar or using a first or second-round pick in 2021.
Let me know in the comments below if you agree with my choice and then go ahead and share you thoughts on some players, as well.
