The Los Angeles Chargers currently hold the No. 5 overall pick in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft, but it sounds like the team is considering the possibility of trading it away.

During a press conference this week, new Los Angeles Chargers General Manager Joe Hortiz revealed that while the team hasn’t received formal offers about trading for the pick, there have been teams “gauging my interest” and that he is “open to all options.”

“We’ll see how it goes. It’s still early and the phone is not ringing yet because we’re still a month or so out,” Hortiz said according to Eric Smith of the Los Angeles Chargers team website. “But I’ve had teams ask me and are gauging my interest. Certainly, as I said before, I’m open to all options when it comes to the draft. I’m not locked into any one spot — forwards, backwards, staying right there.”

With the Chicago Bears, Washington Commanders, and New England Patriots all expected to select quarterbacks with the first three picks in the draft, some team might be willing to trade up to the No. 5 overall spot to select a quarterback like J.J. McCarthy with one of the following picks.

We’ll certainly have to see what happens.
