Report: Chargers Expected To Target Mike Iupati & Possibly Randall Cobb

Michael Gehlken of the Union-Tribune San Diego reports that the Chargers are expected to make run at signing 49ers G Mike Iupati and possibly Packers WR Randall Cobb.

Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day that San Diego was expected to try to get in the bidding for DT Ndamukong Suh as well, so it appears as though the Chargers are targeting top-tier free agent options this offseason.

Last we heard regarding Iupati, Dianna Marie Russini reported that the Redskins and Buccaneers are expected to have “strong interest” in him.

As for Cobb, it appears as though there is a good chance that he’ll be allowed to test the market and recent reports have said that he could be targeting as much $12 million per year in his next contract.

Both players should have no shortage of suitors in the coming days.

Iupati, 27, finished out his five-year, $15,110,625 rookie contract that included $2,074,000 guaranteed and will be an unrestricted free agent in the coming weeks.

Last year, Iupati appeared in 15 games for the 49ers and was rated as the No. 15 guard in the league, according to Pro Football Focus. It’s worth mentioning that he was PFF’s second highest graded guard in terms of run blocking.

Cobb, 24, played out his four-year, $3,209,421 rookie contract and is clearly in position for a sizable raise this offseason.

In 2014, Cobb caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns. He also contributed as the team’s punt returner this year. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 9 wide receiver out of 110 qualifying players.

We have both players listed in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
