The Chargers offseason moves, from the outside, look like that kid who steps one toe in the water ,instead of jumping right in.
No big splashes have been made, and that is not necessarily a bad thing.
While opponents such as the Raiders and Broncos have made offseason moves with big names, it doesn't guarantee a Super Bowl title or even winning the division.
I mean, we are talking about the Raiders, they haven't won a AFC West division title in over a decade.
The Chargers biggest move was resigning linebacker Donald Butler, to a seven year contract worth up to $48 million ($12 million guaranteed).

In his four years with San Diego, Butler has had 257 total tackles, five and a half sacks, and four forced fumbles.
The biggest concern for the bolts all year long was defense, this resigning should help.
Second concern last year was the running game. Would bringing in another running back help starter Ryan Mathews?
The answer as we saw, was a rousing yes. Mathews had his best season of his career thus far, when the Chargers brought in free agent Danny Woodhead.
Mathews however, was playing with a nagging ankle injury all season and missed out on a better half of the divisional playoff game against Denver.
This lead to Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco bringing in Indianapolis Colts free agent Running Back Donald Brown.
Telesco spent 15 years with Indianapolis and knows what Brown can do.

With the strength to run between the tackleslike Mathews and the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield like Woodhead, Brown could turn the Chargers backfield into a dangerous trio.
As much as I do like the moves made by the Chargers, I did hope the front office would be a little more aggressive in going after big name defensive players.
Defensive End Justin Tuck and Linebacker LaMarr Woodley both with Super Bowl rings signed with Oakland and Defensive Lineman DeMarcus Ware and Safety Aqib Talib signed with Denver.
Positions the Chargers could have added depth too.
Charger fans may have to wait until Thursday May 8th, when the first round of this year's NFL Draft begins, before we see that big Cannon Ball.
