The Indianapolis Colts are dropping players left and right and teams that are in need of veteran players are watching closely to try and pick up some of the leftovers. The Chargers just picked up a middle linebacker yesterday with the signing of Demorrio Williams, but there is another veteran that is now made available and could help the team in the middle of the defense.
De-Gary Brackett was released by the Indianapolis Colts now and he is one of the best coverage middle backers when he is healthy. We have always struggled covering the tight ends and Brackett could be able to help us out. He was only able to play in one game last season with a rotator cuff injury. If we were able to pick him up, he could add more depth in the middle of the defense and Demorrio could be used mostly on special teams.
There should be more action on the waiver wire in the next couple of days before free agency starts and the Chargers should be watching closely. Hopefully there will be more pass rushing options for us to choose from.
Would you guys consider Gary Brackett?
