As most of you already know, the time for unrestricted free agency to begin is March 12th at 4:00 pm eastern standard time. The agents for playerrs have already begun speaking to teams but that period is not supposed to take place until March 9th.
Considering the number of holes that need addressing on the roster, the Chargers must find a way to come out of free agency with at least a couple impact players. The need for offensive lineman is obvious. But there are also other holes such as inside linebacker, strong safety, running back, and, most of all, cornerback. There is a strong possibility that depth on the defensive line will be looked at as well.
Additionally,now that it is seems like Shaun Phillips will not be resigned, there could very well be a need at outside linebacker too.
That about sums it all up. So it appears the Bolts have needs at most positions on the team. Some people might even argue that it is time to look for the replacement of Philip Rivers. On that opinion, I strongly disagree but understand the fans’ frustration.
This is one of the most highly anticipated free agency periods in recent memory for the Chargers. I can’t say how curious I am to see what the new regime will do help shore up this roster in 2013.
We’ll know soon enough.
Thanks a lot for reading.
