Report: Chargers fielding trade offers for veteran players

The Chargers appear to be sellers as they head into the new league year.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, Los Angeles has had exploratory trade talks on Joey Bosa, Khalil Mack, Mike Williams and Keenan Allen.

Breer added that Allen is the least likely to be moved, but the team is listening to all offers.

Los Angeles is $21.1 million over the salary cap and must be cap-compliant by March 13.

The veterans have large cap hits, with Mack’s being the highest at $38.52 million, followed by Bosa’s at $36.61 million, Allen’s at $34.72 million, and Williams’ at $32.46 million.

Mack is coming off a career year, finishing with 17 sacks, but he just turned 33. Trading him would free up $23.25 million. Bosa has been riddled with injuries. A trade would free up $14.39 million.

Williams is coming off a torn ACL. A trade would free up $20 million. Allen finished with a 1,243-yard receiving season. He will be 32 this season. Trading him would create $23.1 million in cap space.

Whether it’s being traded or released, expect at least one of these players not to be in the Powder Blues next season.
