Los Angeles Chargers have a crowded linebacker room

After being forced to play with the likes of Adrian Phillips, Rayshawn Jenkins, and Jahleel Addae at linebacker on all three downs at the end of last year (due to injuries), Telesco wanted to add depth to the linebacker group.

Well, saying he “added depth” is putting it mildly.

In a 4-3 defense, where there are only three linebackers on the field at a time (this changes in different sets of course), there does not appear to be enough room for all of the Chargers linebackers to get ample snaps. Below is a list of linebackers on the Chargers roster that are expected to play some role this year.
