Chargers Daily Links, Injury Report: Will the Chargers be able to retain any of their upcoming UFA’s?

Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. Should the Chargers sign Alohi Gilman to an extension NOW?

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning Bolts From the Blue!

We haven’t held back from looking ahead to the 2024 offseason, the dire cap situation in front of us, and what it likely means for the roster next year.

The Chargers will inevitably have to part with some of their top-tier talent, which could be any combination of Joey Bosa, Khalil Mack, Mike Williams, and Keenan Allen. But perhaps just as importantly, the Chargers are currently hamstrung from retaining some of their upcoming UFA’s.

Tom Telesco doesn’t have to be cap compliant in 2024 until the beginning of the new league year, so technically he can extend some of these players now and worry about compliance later. Alohi Gilman is a target Telesco has to consider, as his market should still be relatively low given his limited starts over his four year career and his average athletic profile. Despite this, the Chargers defense has looked completely different with Gilman in the lineup, and his trajectory has been steadily climbing since his breakout performance last year against the Dolphins.

Additionally, here is the injury report from yesterday. It’s still looking clean, but Joey Bosa does appear to be fighting an illness.

Here are the rest of the Daily Links! Make it a fantastic Friday, BFTB!
