The Los Angeles Chargers had one of the best off-seasons in the entire NFL. They traded for All-Pro linebacker Khalil Mack, signed All-Pro cornerback J.C. Jackson, and had a solid 2022 NFL Draft. Chargers Pro Bowl wide receiver Keenan Allen has been really impressed with the roster and what things have been looking at during OTA’s (organized team activities). While speaking to the media, Allen detailed his thoughts.

“Does it look different? Absolutely. Just every position has All-Pro, Super Bowl, superstar talent. You can see it when we practice. It’s amazing,” Allen said.
Most of the Chargers players have shown up for OTA’s this offseason. That should allow the many new faces to integrate themselves. Despite recognizing the talent level on the field, Allen said the team is keeping things in perspective and not talking about the Super Bowl, as NBC Sports writer David Michael Smith captured.
“No. We don’t talk about it. I think it’s just an understanding of what it looks like. It looks like what it’s supposed to look like. We just have to take care of our business.”
Los Angeles was able to re-sign fellow wide receiver Mike Williams. The offense was already loaded, under the guidance of Justin Herbert. But the defense was the weakness in 2021, particularly the run defense. Mack is sure to help there, as well as provide the Chargers with a solid pass rusher.
The biggest problem will likely be due to the fact that the entire AFC West is ridiculously talented. The Broncos added Russell Wilson and Randy Gregory. The Raiders added Davante Adams and Chandler Jones. The Chiefs still have Patrick Mahomes.
