As the NFL combine media circus has come to a close, teams are gearing up for the next part of the offseason: free agency. Free agency will begin March 12th, and for the San Diego Chargers, it will be much quieter than most Chargers fans want. Don’t expect San Diego to chase any big names. New general manager Tom Telesco has already stated that he hopes to build this team through the draft and not through free agency.
It is no secret that the Chargers are entering a new era under the new Telesco regime, and this free agency period will go a long way in telling how that regime will operate. It will be key for Telesco to have a great first offseason, and it all starts with free agency.
Here are some of the pitfalls that the Chargers must avoid in free agency as they continue to claw their way back into playoff contention in the AFC West.
