Chargers GM Says Signing WR Tyrell Williams Will be a Challenge

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco admits it may not be ‘realistic” for the team to re-sign impending free agent wide receiver Tyrell Williams according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.

Williams has been a valuable weapon since signing with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Western Oregon in 2015 but he wants to be paid like a No.1 wideout and the Chargers have far more pressing needs.

They already have a No.1 in Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, who the team drafted No.7-overall out of Clemson in 2017, had a breakout sophomore season with eleven total touchdowns in 16 games.

It makes little sense for the Chargers to get into a bidding war for a player that would probably be third on their depth chart in 2019.

That does not mean that numerous teams won’t be hot on Williams’ trail this offseason. The 26-year-old is in the prime, has not missed a game in the past three seasons, and has a 1,000-yard season on his resume despite being a role player for most of his Chargers career. A receiver-needy team like the Cardinals, Seahawks, Colts, or 49ers could make great use of his skillset.
