The NFL’s foul play period has opened, and many teams have already taken advantage of this early opportunity.

While the Los Angeles Chargers are quieter than most, they made an early morning move for a key player.

Eric Kendricks has signed a two-year, $13.25 million contract with the Chargers, according to Ian Rapoport.

Kendricks is an eight-year NFL veteran and played his entire career with the Minnesota Vikings.

2022 was one of the best seasons of Kendricks’ career, racking up 137 tackles, six passes defensed and one sack.

He will join a Chargers lineup loaded with defensive talent, including superstars Joey Bosa, Derwin James and Khalil Mack.

This is a relatively inexpensive signing for the Chargers, who are getting a valuable piece for their already stout defense.

While the Chargers continue to take steps to get better, they are still tied with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs have won the division for seven straight seasons and don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Can the Chargers keep up?

The front office continues to support Justin Herbert as they re-sign Keenan Allen and Mike Williams in 2023.

Herbert will have support from his wide receivers, and now the team is making more moves to attract top defensive talent as well.

The Chargers made the playoffs for the first time in Herbert’s career in 2022.

Now that they’ve tasted the spotlight, they’ll look to build on that success in 2023.
