Good morning, Chargers fans. It’s a wonderful Tuesday over here — can I get a “hell yeah” for 70+ degrees outside? — and life just seems a bit brighter when the air outside doesn’t hurt your face.
Let’s just start today with some open discussion on anything and everything that’s on your mind. Obviously free agency is right around the corner and plenty of teams around the league are beginning to make moves with that in mind. A number of veterans have already hit the market since the week began in the likes of Carlos Dunlap and Lamarcus Joyner, just to name a few.
Will the Chargers make their own move in the coming days? We have already heard the reports that Trai Turner is getting shopped and Denzel Perryman is expected to test the market, but what about other veterans who are scheduled to make a good deal of money next seasons? There have been some very unofficial reports that Linval Joseph may be a cut candidate due to his cap hit of $11.5 million in 2021, but I think he may be worth the price now that he’ll get the chance to play under Brandon Staley in what will likely be a much better defense overall next season.
Anyways, there’s a bit to get the conversation started. Have at it.
