The San Diego Chargers want a speedy receiver to add to their arsenal of weapons at the disposal of Philip Rivers. But while they made the postseason last year and seem to be on the rise, something free agents tend to like to get in on when looking for a new team, the Chargers are still without another wide recover and are still looking.
According to Tom Krasovic from the San Diego Union Times, if the Chargers fail to find another top-notch receiver to put next to Keenan Allen, this offseason should be considered a missed opportunity.
Consider it a blown chance if the Chargers fail to line up a dangerous wideout opposite Allen, whose average salary cap hit the next three year is just $746,000. The Broncos just guaranteed $26 million to cornerback Aqib Talib. We can assume they’ll assign him to Allen. The NFL sophomore figures to face as well Seahawks star corner Richard Sherman, Cardinals standout Patrick Peterson and other lead corners.
He has a point. The Chargers have an emerging young threat in Allen and we’ve seen in Chicago and other places how well adding a No. 2 compliment can really turn into a No. 1-B option on offense. There are options left for the Chargers, but the team has already missed on some big names and they can’t continue to do that.
