Why are the Chargers looking at GM John Williamson and the Toyota Tercel?
Toyota’s John Williamson, the current GM of the Chargers, has been rumored to be a candidate for the job of GM of a franchise that was recently purchased by the Oakland Raiders.
Sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the Chargers are interested in Williamson.
The team was reportedly in the process of purchasing the franchise from the Raiders when the deal fell through.
Williamson has been the Raiders GM since 2004.
The Chargers have also reportedly been looking to trade for a GM with some familiarity with Toyota vehicles.
The Raiders and Chargers are among the franchises that have been rumored for a potential trade.
The Chargers were rumored to have a deal for the Raiders in place for the 2014 season.
However, it appears as though the team will not be trading for a franchise.
