Chargers could deal Desmond King
Los Angeles Chargers defensive back Desmond King could be traded, writes Daniel Popper of The Athletic.
King's play and role regressed last season following a first-team All-Pro selection as the Chargers' starting slot corner in 2018. He's entering the final year of his rookie deal and became expendable when Chris Harris was signed last month, so the Chargers may look to flip King for a more useful asset. He turned 25 in December.
King failed to record an interception for the first time in his career last season and he also had a personal-low 2 pass deflections. His coverage grade on Pro Football Focus plummeted from 90.1 in 2018 to 67.8 (36th among 92 corners to play at least 500 defensive snaps).
