We’ve already written this month about how the Chargers are going to have to rebuild their offensive line this offseason.
“I love football,” Hardwick told Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune this week. “It’s a hard decision. There is a lot that goes into it. It’s heavy. So I’m not willing to think about it right now.”
Hardwick is set to be a free agent and would do well on the market as a quality starter that still has good years left. He’s third among active Chargers in games started.
“You see the older guys, the alumni who have long term issues, and it makes you think. It’s not scary; it’s just part of weighing the decision,” Hardwick said.
The first job for the next Chargers coach may be finding an offensive line.
