The Los Angeles Chargers made it a priority to upgrade their offensive line in free agency. Yet when it came to addressing one of the more important positions on the line, they are looking to one of their own to step up.

Sam Tevi, who has started at right tackle the past two seasons, is moving to left tackle and will be expected to protect either Tyrod Taylor or Justin Herbert’s blindside. The left tackle spot opened up after Russell Okung was traded to Carolina for right guard Trai Turner.

Tevi played left tackle in college at Utah, but this is the first time in his four seasons in the NFL that he will be primarily on the left side.

“The only difference is changing the feet. You see the defense the same,” Tevi said, explaining the main difference between playing right and left tackle. “The transition has been going good. I’ve been trying to just get my technique down.”
