Adam Schefter Outlines His Ideal Plan for Chargers in Free Agency

The NFL Scouting Combine isn't even halfway done and free agency is already a buzzworthy topic in Indianapolis. After all, the new league year kicks off one week from today with the annual frenzy beginning at 1:00pm PST.

With the NFL's most reputable names all in Indy, we checked in with ESPN's Adam Schefter to get his thoughts on what his ideal plan would be for the Bolts in free agency.

On Defense:

"To help Gus Bradley, the first thing I would do is get Melvin Ingram re-signed and back in the building.  I know they put the tag on him, but that is going to be what I think will be a complicated negotiation to work through for many different reasons.  That's the case when there is a lot of money involved. Beyond that, the defense is on its way to being really good.  I'd give Gus a lot of say into the players on the market he thinks will fit into what he will run."

On Offense:

"In recent years the offensive line has been an issue.  They need to make sure that is stabilized.  I think they need figure out a way to stay healthy up front, but really that goes for the entire team.  They have really struggled with that the last couple of years.  I don't know what the deal is, but it just seems like the Chargers have been racked with more injuries than any team in the league."

General Thoughts:

"They really did a great job last year in free agency, and the draft as well.  Fans in Los Angeles are getting a lot of great young players. The Chargers have a roster that I think does not have many holes. (General Manger) Tom Telesco has really done a great job building that roster, and he will continue to do that moving forward.  Look, they have a top quarterback. They have good, young players. Now, the team needs to complement and supplement that with some new players as they head to L.A."
