The Chargers have a glaring need at left tackle, and it appears they’re making a contingency plan if they can’t draft one.
According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, the Chargers have reached out to the agent for Ravens free agent Bryant McKinnie, in what have been termed a “couple general discussions.”
He hasn’t visited the Chargers, and no deal appears imminent.
McKinnie has battled weight problems in recent years, but his play in the postseason was such that he should find work somewhere.
He’d easily be a better option than what the Chargers have on hand. Other than signing former Eagles tackle King Dunlap, there’s not an apparent answer on the roster, and he might not be anything more than a stop-gap solution.
