The San Diego Chargers are in the market for cornerbacks. Antoine Cason and Quentin Jammer are going to be on the move and the Chargers aren’t going to spend big money on players like Sean Smith or Antoine Cason, so the Chargers have there eyes set at a lower rung of the ladder. They have their eyes set on players like Jacksonville Jaguars CB Derek Cox and Indianapolis Colts CB Jerraud Powers, per Michael Gehlken.
Powers definitely would be on Tom Telesco’s list having those Indianapolis Colts roots. Powers was drafted by the Colts in 2009 and has started 42 games for them with 6 career interceptions. He started 8 games for the Colts last season.
Derek Cox is another player that was drafted in 2009 and was taken in the 3rd round by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has started 45 games with the Jags and has 12 career interceptions.
The names aren’t going to blow people away, but this looks like the approach that we are going to take this offseason. In some ways, it reminds me of the approach we have always taken.
