The Los Angeles Chargers have their new offensive coordinator, with head coach Jim Harbaugh tapping veteran Greg Roman for the role. While Roman was a polarizing figure in Baltimore, there's no denying his Ravens offenses were some of the best in key areas.

As Harbaugh looks to mold the roster to his liking, he could lean on Roman's NFL experience to bring in guys who'd best fit the culture they're going to establish.

With that in mind, here are three players Roman could bring over from Baltimore in his first year with the Chargers.

1. Tyler Huntley

The end of the 2023 campaign was a clear reminder to Los Angeles to prioritize backup quarterback depth. Life without Justin Herbert was painful, to say the least, as the Chargers lost each of the four games he didn't start for them down the stretch.

QB2 Easton Stick did nothing to warrant sticking around, in that role or even a lesser one. That leaves Los Angeles looking for a new main backup, and Ravens signal-caller Tyler Huntley could be the ideal man for the job.

Huntley has been one of the league's better fill-in starters in recent years. He's thrown for nearly 1,400 yards and 5 touchdowns across nine starts since 2021, while adding another 375 yards and two scores on the ground.

Roman has seen up close what Huntley can do with his dual-threat abilities, including helping him put together the best showing of his career (215 passing yards, 73 rushing yards, 4 total TDs) against the Green Bay Packers in primetime during the 2021 season.

Harbaugh also has a track record of succeeding with QBs who can make plays both through the air and on the ground, making Huntley's appeal to this regime even stronger.

It might not be easy to sway Huntley from the place that helped him earn a Pro Bowl selection, but shoring up the depth chart behind Herbert needs to be a priority, so it's worth making a push to sign him in free agency.
