The San Diego Chargers have a whopping 20 unrestricted free agents who will be free to sign with other teams in March. Since the Chargers were a disappointment in 2012, a lot of people think most of these free agents aren’t worth re-signing.
Of course, the Chargers can’t simple let 20 players hit the street because that would create far too many roster holes to fill. What makes a lot more sense is to re-sign a handful of quality players to make sure there are bodies and then try to upgrade with other free agents and through the draft.
There are specifically five players the Chargers should re-sign in free agency, all of which played reasonably well in 2012 and have potential to be better in 2013.
