Should the Chargers choose to search the free agent pool to fill their holes, they could improve their roster immensely. Relying on a veteran who understands the schemes, game plans, and speed of the NFL could prove to be a smart move. The Chargers have a lot of young talent and need to bring in leaders with experience, especially on defense.
This year's options of free agents are very valuable. If the Chargers can manage to strike a deal with Vincent Jackson as opposed to applying a franchise tag, they would be able to manage their money better. A franchise tag on VJax would mean that more than thirteen million of their cap space would be utilized on one wide receiver. The following free agents are players whom the Chargers could use to help propel them to the next level, while not over spending, and maintaining a financial balance.
