Stevie Johnson was the favorite to be the Chargers’ 3rd receiver on the depth chart, but will have to be put on hold for at least a season. After suffering a meniscus tear in training camp a couple of weeks ago, the future was hazy for Johnson as he awaited surgery. Surgery was a success, but not knowing the fate until today when reported by Ian Rapoport.
With this being the case we look forward at the position. We have Keenan Allen at an obvious number 1. Number 2 could be Travis Benjamin or newly added, James Jones. Wide receiver 3 is bound to be fan favorite, Tyrell Willams. The Chargers did sign WR Rico Richardson, who appeared in 6 games with the Tennessee Titans over the last two seasons. It should be something to watch over the course of the next couple of weeks at Chargers Park.
