Cincinnati Bengals: 3 reasons Andy Dalton to the Chargers makes sense
First, the Los Angeles Chargers should draft a quarterback in either 2020 or 2021. That said, they don’t need to go through the growing pains if they don’t have to. Dalton can win with the Chargers this season while the organization allows a rookie quarterback to grow into the role.
With the Chargers drafting sixth, it’s no guarantee they get a starting quarterback for 2020. If Rivers is done in LA, and two teams (Cincinnati, and Miami) taking the first two best quarterbacks off the board, the Chargers might have to draft a player like Tua Tagovailoa (injury issues) or even a potential reach like Jordan Love from Utah State. It’s also possible a team like the Carolina Panthers jump up ahead of the Bolts and grabs a QB like Justin Herbert.
The Chargers have some good quality on offense. With running back Melvin Gordon and a receiver like Mike Williams, the cupboard is not bare. Additionally, a quarterback like Dalton allows them to draft for two positions they also need, offensive tackle or guard. They could even dig into a very deep wide receiver class and take care of the O-line via free agency.
Los Angeles is an intriguing spot for Dalton to take the family. With a new stadium coming online next season, a veteran like Dalton might like that opportunity.
