Chargers' hole at LT remains unfilled
By Bill Williamson
The San Diego Chargers were hoping to fill their left tackle spot with Bryant McKinnie.
He was far from a great option, and he would be an option just for a year. But a day after visiting the Chargers, McKinnie re-signed with Baltimore.
That leaves the Chargers scrambling to protect Philip Rivers’ blind side. The only real option in free agency is former Steelers’ left tackle Max Starks. Like McKinnie, Starks is not a great option, and he’d only be a solution for a year. But the Chargers don’t have a ton of other options.
If they stand pat, they could go with free agent pickup King Dunlap. But he is not widely considered as a top option. The Chargers are improving, but their most glaring hole remains a trouble spot.
