Should the San Diego Chargers Have Interest In LB Nick Barnett?

The Buffalo Bills have cut ties with Southern California boy Nick Barnett. Barnett has led the Bills in tackles the last couple of seeasons and could be a good veteran pickup for Mr. T (GM Tom Telesco).

Middle linebacker Takeo Spikes has lost a step and is a possibility to be released. The San Diego Chargers would need to find a replacement for Spikes in the middle.

Barnett played outside linebacker for the Bills, but he is capable of playing in the middle. When the Green Bay Packers moved to a 3-4 defense, Barnett started as an inside linebakher. He did really well, but was troubled by the injury bug.

Barnett is 31 years old, but could come at a good price. He could be a good stop gap in the middle of the defense for a couple of seasons. It wouldn’t be a bad pickup. PLUS, I am convinced that Takeo Spikes has some sort of curse.

Alright Beaters, should the Chargers have interest in Nick Barnett?
