The times are changing a bit as the Los Angeles Chargers will be moving into a new stadium and also going through a quarterback change. After years of Philip Rivers being under center they will turn a new leaf. After drafting Justin Hebert sixth overall, he was drafted to be the franchise quarterback for the future. They brought in Tyrod Taylor as an experienced quarterback. Los Angeles is loaded with talent on the offense and defensive side. Derwin James, Casey Heyward, and Chris Harris will be the top names in the secondary. Harris is coming over from the division rival Denver Broncos.

Top Chargers Roster Questions 2020

The Chargers had a disappointing 2019 season, finishing with just a 5-11 record as they struggled to find consistency at Dignity Health Sports Park, the LA Galaxy soccer stadium, which has a capacity of only 27,000. SoFi Stadium is set to open this season, and while the Rams and Chargers will likely have to wait to play in front of fans in their new venue due to the pandemic, there's no doubt the new stadium is more suited to hosting NFL games. There's more than improved amenities to be excited about for the Chargers, though, as the free agency period brought in four high-level veteran starters in Bryan Bulaga (offensive tackle), Chris Harris Jr. (cornerback), Linval Joseph (defensive tackle), and Trai Turner (offensive guard). Harris, in particular, is an important addition as a former starter on the Broncos' Super Bowl-winning team. The Chargers will have a new starting quarterback in 2020 as Philip Rivers is now an Indianapolis Colt, and the team is hoping first-round pick Justin Herbert will be the future of the franchise. He has plenty of pass-catching talent to take advantage of between Keenan Allen, Hunter Henry, Mike Williams, and Austin Ekeler. The defense should also be one of the best units in the NFL with plenty of talent between Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram, Chris Harris, Derwin James, Casey Hayward, Linval Joseph, and Desmond King among the best players at their respective positions.

Who is the Highest Paid Chargers Player?

Heading into the 2020-21 season, edge defender Melvin Ingram currently carries the team's most significant cap hit at $16.6 million. Joey Bosa isn't too far behind him with a cap hit of $14.4 million. Ingram and Bosa are one of the best edge-rushing tandems in the league.

Who Owns the Los Angeles Chargers?

The Chargers have been owned by the Spanos family since 1984 when Alex Spanos purchased a majority interest in the team. Dean Spanos, Alex's son, took over full ownership after Alex Spanos's death in 2018. Dean Spanos moved the Chargers from San Diego to Los Angeles.

Who Is the Chargers Head Coach?

Anthony Lynn is entering his fourth season as the Chargers' head coach, a role he has seen mixed success in. In his first two seasons, Lynn led the team to a 9-7 and 11-5 record, respectively, with a 1-1 playoff record in 2018. However, Lynn's team had a down year in 2019 with a 5-11 record.

How Much Cap Space do the Chargers Have?

The Chargers currently have just over $20.4 million in available cap space, which ranks as the 11th-most in the NFL. The Chargers have among the lowest dead cap holds in the NFL, with just $8.5 million owed to players no longer on the team.

Who Is the Chargers Starting Quarterback for 2020?

Justin Herbert was drafted by the franchise 6th overall in this year's draft. Still, the former Oregon quarterback might need some time to develop and has a wide range of outcomes. Tyrod Taylor is the incumbent veteran on the roster and will likely be the Week 1 starter.

Who is the Youngest Player on the Chargers?

Along with Justin Herbert, the Chargers drafted Kenneth Murray, the former Oklahoma linebacker, in the first round. Murray is just 21 years old and won't turn 22 until November. He has tons of upside as a long-term key part of the team's defense.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Chargers?

The Chargers had the 5th-oldest roster in the NFL last season, but their roster is younger this season. Still, a handful of key players are 31 years old, including Linval Joseph, Virgin Green, Melvin Ingram, Bryan Bulaga, and Chris Harris Jr. Those are the oldest players on the team heading into 2020.
