After losing running back Ryan Mathews to free agency,
“Ryan was very unique,” McCoy said. “He’s different than what we have now. But as that physical guy, yes, you can say Branden is that physical guy we have now.”
Oliver, an undrafted free agent in 2014, led the Chargers in rushing last season with 582 yards rushing and three touchdowns. He was named Pepsi AFC offensive rookie of the week twice last year.
McCoy went on to say that Oliver will benefit from the return of Danny Woodhead and teammate Donald Brown in 2015. Both players missed time in 2014.
“We can win with the three guys we have now,” McCoy said. “I believe that. We’re going to play them all. So, they’re all going to play in their own way, and we’ll see what happens through the draft and the rest of free agency with what’s available.”
The 23-year-old ball carrier signed a four-year contract with the team last season.
"There are things we can do more with him," McCoy said. "He worked extremely hard. I don't think it was anything he was physically doing out there. I think it was a matter of philosophically what we were doing with the players we had. We got into the 11 personnel game a lot, three receivers and a tight end. When you have the three receivers we had, and you've got (tight end) Antonio Gates, (you'd have to) take the back out of the game. We need to use him more."
Green was limited to only 19 receptions on 24 targets in 2014. Entering his fourth year in the league, the 24-year-old has totaled 40 receptions for 658 yards and three touchdowns.
General manager Tom Telesco echoed McCoy's sentiments about getting Green into the mix.
It's a good problem to have that we have enough guys," Telesco said. "Philip (Rivers) spreads the ball around. Basically, the open guy gets the ball; he doesn't force it to anybody. But Ladarius has a lot of talent. We'll get him in the mix. We will. He's too good not to."
Speaking to the media at the NFL Owners Meetings, McCoy said Rivers was "one of the best in the business", per NFL.com.
"The only thing I'm worried about is this next season. We can't worry about 2016 and beyond," McCoy said. "He's under contract for this year, and we plan on Philip Rivers retiring a Charger."
The 29-year-old has been in the league for seven seasons. He has played for the Eagles, Broncos, Texans and Chiefs. Over his career he has registered 240 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, six passes defensed and one forced fumble.
Hairston, 25, has started 15 games in the NFL with the Bills. The Chargers are looking for a swing tackle and offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris has familiarity with him from his time with the Bills.
The three-year veteran has played at both the left and right tackle positions.
