The Chargers were aggressive in getting Jacoby Jones before the market opened, and they’re apparently going to continue to press hard now that the legal tampering window is open.
According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, the Chargers are “expected to make a run” at 49ers guard Mike Iupati, and may possibly try to get involved on the Randall Cobb sweepstakes as well.
While many believe the Packers wide receiver will eventually end up with the Raiders, Iupati would be an equally big addition for the Chargers.
They struggled protecting last year (primarily because of injuries that turned their center position into the Spinal Tap drummer), and Iupati would be a massive upgrade. Paired with re-signed left tackle King Dunlap, that would give the Chargers a stable side of the line.
Iupati figures to draw plenty of interest in the market, as the three-time Pro Bowler gets a chance to hear from other teams.
