Chargers Free Agency NewsChargers Offseason Plan: Six unrestricted free agents the Chargers will re-signNew,46commentsPSTThe Chargers are primed for a busy offseason defined by a number of internal personnel decisions. Some of those decisions will be easy, while others could prove to be exceedingly difficult for a variety of reasons. Either way, they have to make all of these decisions between February 4th and the beginning of free agency on March 13th.As it stands right now, Los Angeles has 15 players set to become unrestricted free agents at 4pm EST on March 13th. There are some big names and key contributors on this list, a few depth pieces, and a handful of expendable players who are likely to be cut loose.This is the third installment of my offseason plan series, in which I will cover all of the offseason moves I would make leading up to the draft. We already discussed the cuts, restructures and extensions I would pursue, as well as the team’s restricted and exclusive rights free agents, so let’s dive into the six unrestricted free agents I expect the team to re-sign this offseason. We’ll talk about the season they had in 2018, what I expect the team to do, and what their contracts will look like.Let’s get started…Adrian PhillipsAdrian Phillips was the Chargers most improved player, if not the most improved player in the NFL in 2018. The fifth-year defender led the NFL in special teams tackles (19) while finishing among the Bolts’ top five defenders in solo tackles (77), assists (29), total tackles (94), and passes defensed (10). Adrian also earned first team All Pro, Pro Bowl and Professional Football Writers of America All-NFL Team honors for his work on special teams. Needless to say, he’s going to get paid.If any of the Los Angeles free agents are a lock to be re-signed this offseason, it’s probably Adrian Phillips. Adrian is the definition of a homegrown player in the NFL, having worked his way up from being an undrafted free agent to an All Pro over the last five years. I would expect Jahleel Addae’s four-year, $22,500,000 contract to set the (extreme) floor, while Adrian’s representatives will shoot for something more along the lines of Darian Stewart’s four year, $28,000,000 contract. They’ll settle somewhere in the middle.Projected Market Value: 4 years, $26,500,000 with $8.5M in guaranteesOdds of being retained: 80/20Darius PhilonDarius Philon led the Chargers interior defensive linemen in sacks (4) and tackles for loss (9). He also finished second among defensive tackles in assists, solo tackles and total tackles. Philon was their most consistent interior defender and seems primed to excel in an expanded role next season. It’s hard to imagine the front office not bringing Darius back considering the turnover they’re likely to experience at the position this offseason.While productive, and certainly trending in the right direction in his career, Darius probably won’t command a ton of money. With that in mind, I expect the team to use Damion Square’s two-year, $4 Emeke Egbule Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys ,000,000 contract as a baseline. Taking Darius’ large role and the NFL’s ever-growing salary cap into account, I think #93 gets an extra year and an additional $1,000,000 per year.Projected Market Value: 3 years, $9,000,000 with $2.25M in guaranteesOdds of being re-signed: 65/35*I’d feel better about Darius being retained if the team hadn’t scaled back his snaps down the stretch.Damion SquareAfter replacing Isaac Rochell as the starting base end in week five, Damion Square did much of the dirty work against the run and provided invaluable interior pressure in passing situations. While the stat line may not stand out much (31 tackles, 3 sacks, 4 tackles for loss, 3 passes defensed), his effort and energy played a key role in the transformation of the Chargers defense over the final 12 games of the 2018 season and, I suspect, earned him a couple more years with the team.The team loves Square, and rightfully so. He is a true team player, playing key minutes at both defensive tackle positions and Joey Bosa’s base end spot. My guess is the Chargers will offer Damion a deal that closely resembles his most recent contract, adding a slight pay increase and throwing a nice guarantee his way.Projected Market Value: 2 years, $5,500,000, $1,750,000 guaranteedOdds of re-signing: 70/30Kyle EmanuelKyle Emanuel posted 30 tackles, four tackles for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and a defensive touchdown while appearing in all 16 games in 2018. He is widely considered the team’s best edge-setter (debatable) and a core special teams player, but he is also a liability in coverage and offers next to nothing as a pass rusher. The team also inexplicably thinks he’s a suitable backup at the MIKE and WILL linebacker positions.This is something of a tricky contract to find comps for because, while Emanuel is technically a defensive “starter”, he doesn’t play starter snaps and is primarily valued on special teams. He also made $1,900,000+ in 2018 and will almost certainly sign for something between $2,500,000 and $3,000 Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys Stitched ,000 per year. Is Kyle worth that sort of commitment considering the team is likely to reduce his role on defense? I don’t think so, but I suspect the team will see things differently.Projected Market Value: Two years, $5,750,000, $250,000 guaranteedOdds of being re-signed: 60/40Geremy DavisGeremy Davis had a great training camp and preseason before ultimately earning the fifth wide receiver position coming out of camp. While he didn’t see much time at wide receiver, he played extremely hard on special teams, finishing the season with 10 special teams tackles. It stands to reason he could enter camp with an inside track on the third or fourth spot on the wide receiver depth chart depending on what happens with Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin this offseason.The team could very well part ways with both Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin this offseason. Should they decide to go that route, it could either lead to a larger role in the offense for Geremy Davis, or entice the team to sign veteran depth behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. Either way, Davis should come cheap and will probably at least head into camp with a chance with an inside track on one of the final three spots at wide receiver.Projected Market Value: One Year, $850,000 with $100,000 in guaranteesOdds of being re-signed: 65/35Jaylen Watkins2018 Season: Jaylen Watkins signed a one year, $800,000 contract with the Chargers last offseason and was, by all accounts, enjoying a solid training camp and preseason before he tore an anterior cruciate ligament during the second preseason game. Watkins can play nickel corner and safety, and signing him creates competition throughout the secondary when healthy.The Chargers obviously liked Jaylen Watkins enough to sign him last offseason, and I have a feeling they’ll probably give him a second chance this offseason. He should come relatively inexpensively and, as I mentioned above, bringing him back breeds competition in the secondary. Maybe bringing Jaylen back allows the team to transition Jahleel Addae into a more suitable dime linebacker role, while giving Watkins and Adrian Phillips a chance to compete at free safety.Projected Market Value: One year, $850,000 with $150,000 in guarantees.Odds of being re-signed: 60/40You probably noticed the absence of players like Tyrell Williams, Denzel Perryman, Jason Verrett and Antonio Gates from this list. As you might have guessed based on their absence, I believe the team will part ways with each of them for one reason or another this offseason. I’ll discuss those at length in my next article.So, in summary, I expect the Chargers to make every effort to retain Adrian Phillips, Darius Philon, Damion Square, Kyle Emanuel, Geremy Davis and Jaylen Watkins. While I’m on board with re-signing Phillips Cheap Emeke Egbule Jersey , Philon, Square, and Davis, I could go either way on Watkins. And I’m ready to part ways with Emanuel. In my opinion, Darius Philon is probably the most likely player on this list to outperform his deal, while it will probably be very difficult to get a justifiable return on a market deal for Kyle Emanuel.Thanks for reading and please keep an eye out for my next off-season piece – Four unrestricted free agents the Chargers will not re-sign.Let me know what you think in the comments section…11 takeaways from the Chargers 36-7 loss to the Saints The third preseason game for the Los Angeles Chargers, also known as the annual “dress rehearsal,” has come and gone with the home team losing 36-7 to the New Orleans Saints. While the score certainly isn’t very pretty, I don’t think things are quite as bleak as a 29-point loss might otherwise suggest.The truth is, the Chargers starters played pretty well on both sides of the ball. The offense, in particular, put together two solid drives against a talented and well-coached New Orleans defense – even if one ended when Rivers failed to connect with Mike Williams on a fourth-and-goal jump ball. Meanwhile, the first team defense intercepted Drew Brees and limited the Saints to a touchdown and two field goals in three red zone trips.Let’s take a look at some of the things that stood out to me – both good and bad – in Saturday’s loss to the Saints:When in doubt, run left: Mike Pouncey, Dan Feeney, and Russell Okung look like a major strength for this offense. Austin Ekeler ran the ball six times for 50 yards during the first two drives, including four carries for 38 yards behind the left side of the line. Pouncey, Feeney, and Okung didn’t just control the line of scrimmage, they owned it, and Ken Whisenhunt wasn’t the least bit shy about leaning on them. This is going to be a fun group to watch during the regular season.Austin Ekeler – RB1?: With Melvin Gordon unavailable on Saturday, Austin Ekeler started the game and was the focal point of each of the Chargers’ first two drives. Ken Whisenhunt called Ekeler’s number nine times in the team’s first seventeen offensive plays and was rewarded with 63 total yards. While I’m half-kidding when I suggest Ekeler is RB1, his vision, burst, elusiveness, and hands out of the backfield might have him ready to take on a much larger role this year. He looked fantastic.A glimpse of things to come?: The Chargers’ first drive may have revealed a new, more aggressive attitude on the part of head coach Anthony Lynn. Faced with a fourth-and-goal from the Saints four-yard line, Lynn eschewed a chip-shot field goal in favor of a jump ball for Mike Williams. Granted, Williams didn’t get open and the Chargers failed to convert, but it’s pretty telling that Lynn opted to go for it on fourth down instead of kicking the ball with a somewhat murky kicking competition taking place in camp. It seems like a big vote of confidence for Mike Williams in what has been a preseason of baby steps for the former #7 overall pick.Detrez is the man: There is little doubt at this point that Detrez Newsome is the favorite to win the third-string running back job. While his stats on Saturday certainly weren’t eye-popping, he finished with 14 touches for 44 yards and an eight-yard touchdown run. Newsome strikes me as the ideal complement to Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler and, for the first time in years, the Chargers appear to have a dynamic and versatile three-man backfield. Detrez earned it.JJ just misses: The fact that Travis Benjamin and Desmond King served as the primary return men on Saturday probably suggests Jones won’t make the roster. JJ simply isn’t an NFL wide receiver and, even with his potential as a return specialist, I the coaches likely can’t justify keeping seven receivers if the seventh man can’t at least break camp as the primary return specialist. That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if the team tries to protect him by including him on the initial 53-man roster with the intention of transferring him to the practice squad after the rest of the league has announced their practice squads. He could serve as a “placeholder” for an Antonio Gates signing Mens Emeke Egbule Jersey , assuming the team ultimately brings him in.It’s Gates time: The Chargers played a third straight game in which their tight ends struggled to contribute as targets in the passing game. Sean Culkin caught his lone target for a seven-yard gain, but the group was otherwise invisible in the passing game. While I don’t think adding Antonio Gates changes much for this position group in terms of consistent playmaking ability, I do think his signing is probably inevitable. With that in mind, let’s get it done, already, so we can stop talking about it.Let Pooh Bear eat: Derwin James started his first game as a Charger and celebrated with an interception, a couple big hits, and a couple third down stops. Derwin showed a bit of everything you look for in a free safety when he intercepted Drew Brees on the third play of the game, including anticipation, range and electric ball skills. He’s arguably the best athlete on the team and possesses the best natural ball skills of any safety on the roster. He’s also the only safety on the roster capable of making that play. Stick James back there and good things will happen.White-out at WILL:Derwin James wasn’t the only rookie to start his first game as a Charger, as fourth-round pick Kyzir White got the nod at weakside linebacker (WILL). While he didn’t make any splash plays, White looked really good in man coverage, made a couple stops in the run game, and didn’t miss any tackles. I think he needs to work on how he reacts to play-action (a little too aggressive) and he seemed to be thinking a little out there, but it wasn’t bad for a rookie who missed the second preseason game.Brown on the bubble?: Jatavis Brown looked lost against the Saints. After making consecutive run stops to start the third quarter, Brown promptly missed his next seven tackle attempts, including an embarrassing whiff on Taysom Hill at the goal line. His reads were inconsistent, his angles were extremely poor and he was routinely beat to the edge. He looked even worse than Dwight Lowery did against the 49ers last preseason – right before he got cut. While I’m not totally convinced he’ll get cut, I think next week could ultimately decide Jatavis’ fate.Mager is in: It’s becoming pretty apparent that Craig Mager has the fifth cornerback spot on lockdown. He started the game opposite Michael Davis on the boundary, then played well into the third quarter while rotating inside to the slot. Mager went a third straight game without being targeted and I thought he played with solid technique and was generally in good position. Outside of eating a nasty stiff arm from Michael Thomas in the second quarter, Craig didn’t do anything to make me think he’s going to relinquish his hold on what figures to be the fifth and final spot on the depth chart.Chargers eliminate the dirty laundry: I thought the team executed more efficiently in all three phases of the game against the Saints and, most importantly, they more or less eliminated the mental and physical errors that led to 28 penalties over the first two preseason games. Granted, some of that is the direct result of getting the starters extended snaps, but the team definitely played its cleanest preseason game to date. In addition to avoiding major injuries, that’s the best possible outcome from the third preseason game.Well, those are my notes from the Chargers third preseason game. Overall, I thought the starters played pretty well on offense and defense, the majority of the camp battles have come to their conclusion, and the Bolts cleaned up the stupid mistakes they made through the first two preseason games. All in all, it was a pretty successful dress rehearsal for the starters. Don’t even get me started on the backups.
