    Matthieu isn't under contract after 2021. So that number they had for cap space in 2022 doesn't even include Mathieu.

        They have 24 players under contract next year. Since the top 51 salaries count towards the cap (if I understand that rule correctly) they will need to sign 27 players for $26.8 million or about a million per player. Some of them will be this year's draft class and they are not paying a number one pick so they get a bit of a break, but they certainly won't have room for a lot of elite players. They can continue to play the restructuring game to gain a bit more space - but can only keep doing that so many times before they are going to be in a big crunch.

          Maybe, maybe not. Veach is one of the best GMs in the league and knows how to work the cap. On top of that Mahomes signed a very team friendly contract.

          Besides, would you trade a couple of years of potential salary cap hell for a few Super Bowls? I would.

            Why did this get bumped? I thought he got injured or something.
            Tom Telesco’s Results in 9 years as Chargers GM:

            - 69-74 record
            - 0 division titles in 9 yrs as GM
            - Worst record among all active GMs with same tenure
            - 6th worst winning percentage among all active GMs overall
            - 2 playoff wins despite elite QB all 9 yrs
            - Team still has the same weaknesses (Oline and run defense) that it had when hired as GM in 2013
            - Consistently puts together horrible depth, expects starters to never miss games

              You would. I would. Let’s see if the Spanii will. We have 4 years to load up on talent and make a run at the SB.
              Now, if you excuse me, I have some Charger memories to suppress.

                Brown got injured? That's news to me.
