NECESSARY: The Chargers were already one of the most active teams in the offseason. Two draft picks will be sent to the Chicago Bears by Tom Telesco, general manager. They will go for Khalil Mack, the Chicago Bears’ premier edge rusher. Telesco was also able to sign Mike Williams, WR, to a three year contract without the franchise tag. Although the $60 million deal ($40million guaranteed) has a $14million cap number for 2022 but Los Angeles remains in the top five for cap space, it still holds the $60 million deal. If it decides to release Bryan Bulaga, the injured right tackle, before March 18, when Bulaga’s roster bonus is due, it could add more space. The Chargers still have Justin Herbert, a third-year quarterback, on their rookie contract. They will need to improve a defense that was unable to stop the run last season, and also strengthen the right side offensive line.
