The peak of free agency is over and the 2024 NFL Draft is behind us. Teams are preparing for the next season as they look to finalize their training camp rosters through rookie minicamps and signing undrafted free agents.

This doesn't mean, however, that there aren't free agents available on the market. Plenty of quality veterans are still unsigned and the Los Angeles Chargers should turn their attention to this market to bolster their roster ahead of next season. Let's take a look at three free agents who would be ideal fits on the new-look Chargers.

Tyler Boyd, WR

In the loaded Bengals offense, Tyler Boyd never got the attention he deserved, getting overshadowed by Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase. However, Boyd has consistently been a very productive pass-catcher for Cincinnati for the past eight seasons, helping the team reach the Super Bowl in 2021.

Boyd may not be the 1,000+ yards receiver he was earlier in his career but he is still a dangerous threat. He will turn 30 during the 2024 campaign but still has plenty of gas left in the tank as demonstrated by his 67 catches, 667 yards, and two touchdown season he had in 2023 despite playing almost half of the year without Joe Burrow.

The Chargers desperately need to add another wide receiver to the mix. They currently project to start Josh Palmer, Ladd McConkey, and Quentin Johnston, while DJ Chark provides additional depth. That is not a sufficient WR rotation for a team trying to win. That rotation represents a significant downgrade from the time the Bolts had Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. Boyd would provide the veteran playmaking presence this Chargers offense undoubtedly needs.
