Las Vegas Raiders 2022 opponent offseason review: Los Angeles Chargers
However, the Chargers did not just address the defensive side of the ball in the offseason, they made a couple of moves on the offensive side as well. Los Angeles resigned wideout Mike Williams, who had a breakout season last year going over the 1,000-yard mark for only the second time in his career with1,146 yards on 76 receptions and nine touchdowns. ..
Williams has been struggling with injuries since being drafted No. 7 overall in the 2017 draft.
The Chargers also released right tackle Bryan Bulaga and resigned Storm Norton as his likely replacement. One of the more underrated moves the Chargers made was signing Gerald Everett away from the Seattle Seahawks. Everett had career highs in receptions, yards, and touchdowns last season, and will likely surpass those numbers with the other weapons the Chargers have on the offensive side opening things up more for him.
In the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Chargers brought in some extra protection for young quarterback Justin Herbert in the form of Guard Zion Johnson out of Boston College. Zion played both tackle and guard in college but projects as a guard on the next level earning himself AP First Team All-American and All ACC Honors last season.
We now know what the regular-season schedule will look like for the Las Vegas Raiders, so why not try and predict the outcome of all 17 games.
The Los Angeles Chargers have remade their team this offseason to try and break their four-year playoff drought. They were one game away last season and hope that the continued development of quarterback Justin Herbert and the additions of Khalil Mack and JC Jackson on defense will put them over the edge toward their first playoff appearance since 2018 and first division championship since 2009.
