Report: Several teams eyeing trade for Chargers All-Pro



The possibility of the Los Angeles Chargers parting ways with star linebacker Khalil Mack this offseason has garnered attention from rival teams, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Fowler reported on “SportsCenter” that multiple teams are closely monitoring Mack’s situation with the Chargers, considering the potential for a trade. One significant factor driving this speculation is the potential salary cap savings of upwards of $20 million for the Chargers if they decide to trade Mack.

Despite being one of the standout performers for the Chargers last season, where he earned his second consecutive Pro Bowl nod after achieving a career-high 17.0 sacks in 2023, Mack’s future with the team appears uncertain due to financial considerations.

The Chargers have faced challenges in capitalizing on the talent they’ve assembled in recent years, including their investment in Mack. With limited success in the playoffs and the impending start of Justin Herbert’s massive new contract in the 2025 season, the team faces tough decisions regarding their salary cap.

Managing the contracts of highly paid players like Mack, Joey Bosa, Mike Williams, and Keenan Allen will be crucial for the Chargers moving forward, especially as these players collectively account for over $30 million against the salary cap in 2024.

Given these financial considerations and the potential interest from other teams, it remains to be seen whether the Chargers will ultimately decide to part ways with Mack in the offseason.
