The 2023 New League Year is here, as the NFL's free agency period is off and running.
Keep track of all the Chargers roster moves with this one-stop for all signings and transactions.
Here is the 2023 Chargers Free Agency Tracker, which will be updates once moves are made official by either the Chargers or other NFL teams.
The Chargers have added a vital piece to the middle of their defense with the signing of linebacker Eric Kendricks. A 2019 First-Team All-Pro and Pro Bowler, Kendricks started 113 career games and had 900-plus career tackles in eight seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. The 31-year-old should also still have plenty of juice left in the tank as he continues his career in Southern California and close to where he starred in college at UCLA.
Guyton played in 38 games and had six touchdowns over four seasons. His 2022 season ended in Week 3 with a torn ACL.
Hall has played in 18 games with the Chargers over the past two seasons.
News: Chargers Sign Kemon Hall
Agreed to Terms
Scott's overall numbers might not rank near the top of the league, but his hangtime was a major weapon for the Bolts in 2022. That skill allowed the Chargers to rank first in the NFL with just 3.1 yards allowed per punt return. Bringing Scott back is a big move for the Bolts, who should have high expectations on special teams going forward.
Donald Parham, Jr.
Parham has battled injuries in the past few seasons, but has seven touchdowns in 40 career games. Now that the Chargers re-signed the tight end, Parham should provide depth and play-making ability due to his rare size and athleticism.
Trey Pipkins III
Pipkins was a bit of a project out of Sioux Falls when the Chargers took him in the third-round of the 2019 NFL Draft. But he progressed in each of his past four seasons, none more so than the 2022 season when he won the starting right tackle job in training camp and started 14 games. Pipkins' return gives him a chance to reach his full potential in the next few seasons, something he's more than capable of doing.
Clapp made three starts at center after signing as a free agent a year ago. He re-signed with the Chargers on April 6 and will provide solid depth along the interior.
Fox posted a career-high 6.5 sacks in 2022 after signing a 1-year deal with the Chargers. Fox's return should pay dividends in the locker room and on the field, where his versatility will play a crucial role up front for the Bolts defense.
Stick has played a vital role behind the scenes and on the practice field in helping all facets of the roster prepare for game day. That includes working with Justin Herbert in meeting rooms and on the sideline on game day. Stick will now get a chance to take on a bigger role as he is likely to be Herbert's backup in 2023.
Dicker thrived as a rookie kicker in 2022, hitting 19 of 20 field goals and all 22 extra points in 10 games with the Bolts. His return means the Bolts could have a kicking battle later this offseason.
Sarell made his NFL debut in 2022, starting three games at right tackle this past season.
Dolphins acquire CB Jalen Ramsey in trade with Rams
The AFC got even tougher when Miami added star cornerback Jalen Ramsey to their roster in a trade. The Chargers will see Ramsey, whom Chargers Head Coach Brandon Staley knows well, at SoFi Stadium in 2023.
Chargers AFC West foes add big names to respective rosters
