Chargers opt to gamble entire season on the growth of their offensive linemen

Chargers’ general manager Tom Telesco has done well in bringing in talent along the offensive line, from finding gem starters in King Dunlap to making fantastic coupon-cutting acquisitions like Mike Pouncey; however, despite the presence of a franchise quarterback and franchise running back, Telesco has never been able to put together a truly dominant front five. Whether due to a few bad contracts or a number of poor draft choices, the Chargers’ offensive line has never been a point of strength under their current general manager. Entering 2019, Telesco and the coaching staff believe that their current players are enough to contend for a Super Bowl, and have opted to gamble their season on the growth of their offensive linemen, specifically Dan Feeney, Forrest Lamp, and Sam Tevi.
