San Diego Chargers New Hole To Fill At Middle Linebacker

Let’s get back on topic today…. Move on for the Lebron James and Atlanta Falcons randomness from the morning.

Takeo Spikes has cut and we now added a new hole on the roster that already has a ton of holes. Spikes could have been used as a plug for another season, but his cap money was just too much for the team to swallow. We need to use any resources we can to sign offensive linemen.

With Spikes gone, the San Diego Chargers will need to find a new starter in the middle of the defense. Demorrio Williams could have been a nice fill in, but he is a free agent. Jonas Mouton? Maybe we hand the handlebars off to Bront Bird to steer this thing. Bird filled in nice during his stint as the starter.

Still, we probably should look for an upgrade somewhere. Whether it be through free agency or through the draft.

If Manti Te’o is there in the 2nd round, would you draft him? I wonder if Kirk Morrison is going to play some ball this season?

Any of the good young linebackers are going to cost too much. We might be able to get some of the vets at a discount rate. Te options in free agency just seem thin. Maybe we can bring back players like Brandon Siler or Tim Dobbins. They both are free agents and they both should know John Pagano pretty well.
