That price tag better be “The RICHEST defensive contract in NFL history” status OR we are not even going to sniff a chance at Mario Williams.
Here is a little excerpt from the UT today:
Meanwhile, the Chargers have assigned an (unknown) price they would be willing to pay for Williams.
The Chargers did talk with Ben Dogra, Williams’ agent, at the Combine. But Dogra is among the biggest agents in the business, and it is not known if Williams was discussed. – Kevin Acee
If AJ Smith were able to pull off a steal like this, would we be mad if Vincent Jackson walked away? Williams is the biggest name in free agency and is the biggest defensive playmaker available. With him here, we would be able to put a lot of pressure on quarterbacks with him and Shaun Phillips. Our defense would have a lot more potential to cause turnovers. We could then shift are focus in the draft to a receiver, offensive lineman or a defensive tackle.
AJ could quiet down a lot of angry fans with a signing like this! Let’s start praying now!
