When I first decided to do this post, I had planned on writing my thoughts on the former Chargers that are listed below and what they are doing now. I have since changed my mind due to reading those names below and becoming incredibly angry at that money being paid to players that are no longer on the team. So instead, I’m just going to leave this chart here ( credit to overcap.com ) and go look at some of the free agents that were signed by other teams.
Every team, every year, has dead money on the books from players that have been released, waived or cut. But when you look at a team that overachieved in 2013, to think about being able to add a few key free agents would have been a great momentum-builder going into May’s draft.
I am not, by any means, suggesting that the Chargers should have gone on a spending spree. I am ecstatic with what Tom Telesco has done with so little room under the salary cap.
I am not sure that we will see much more activity in free agency, but I do know that I have complete faith in what Telesco is doing. I also know that I am certainly looking forward to watching it all unfold.
