Keenan Allen not happy with Chargers’ offseason changes

After the news broke on Sunday night that the Chargers had rescinded the restricted free agent tender previously extended to defensive end Chris McCain, Chargers receiver Keenan Allen wasn’t happy.

I just don’t understand sometimes!” Allen said in a since-deleted tweet, via TheBigLead.com. “But we sign people like… nvm.”

The first part referred to McCain; the second part potentially referred to quarterback Geno Smith, one of the few offseason additions by the team in free agency.

Other tweets still existing on Allen’s timeline seem to hint at his displeasure with the situation. And while Allen’s frustration may be fueled by the fact that Allen and McCain attended the same high school and college, the Chargers have been sticking to the more traditional ways of building a team while the Rams have been going all in.

Of course, it’s not too late for the Chargers to make a splash. They could trade for Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. And they could add Allen to the compensation package.

    And what purpose would that serve? So maybe they get around 1500 yards out of Beckham instead of Allen’s almost 1400 yards last year. And as part of the compensation package, maybe they have to give up a first round pick as well. That’s the kind of move the Cleveland Browns would make. Not teams actually trying to win.

  2. All of San Diego not happy with the Chargers offseason changes last year. This year, those same people could care less.

  3. Can’t fault him for being upset over the Chargers acquiring Geno Smith. That dude’s terrible. When you’re noticibly taking steps in the wrong direction, you’d hope someone would speak out. More power to Keenan Allen for actually commenting on how bad Smith is! He’s just saying what we’re all thinking.

  4. Signing Geno Smith is baffling. He’s a turnover machine, like Mark Sanchez.
    I’d rather go with a different failed starter , to see if they have improved.

  5. I think this is more about McCain then Geno. McCain was the Chargers 3rd DE who had great pass rush skills and was costing the team peanuts. It doesn’t make sense from an outside perspective.
