CB Jacob Lacey Could Be On Chargers Radar


The Minnesota Vikings release CB Jacob Lacey today and the Chargers must have their ears perk up on that release. The Chargers are scouring through the waiver wire in hopes of adding depth all across the roster. We definitely need some help in the secondary. We lost rookie 5th round pick Steve Williams already and were likely in the market to add some help in the department before that injury.

GM Tom Telesco should already be familiar with Lacey. The Colts brought in Lacey as an undrafted free agent in 2009 and he started a few games for them. He has started 36 games total in his career.

The Chargers have Derek Cox, Shareece Wright and Johnny Patrick on the roster as the teams corners. Marcus Gilchrist can also play corner, but he likely will be the starting the season as the team’s strong safety. We will need to add some depth across the roster. The guys will be watching all the cuts that will be coming through and will likely add a few new pieces in the next few weeks.

      tues the 27th

    • Gunnar Martin

      And then the final cuts are on the Friday after that. It’s the 30th

  • Gunnar Martin

    Anyone who can help the team is welcomed with open arms.

  • Rob Base

    They need depth bad so it wouldn’t hurt to give him a shot.

  • Nick in PB

    It’s tough because we need to upgrade, which means taking a chance that someone better comes down the road. However, we are so thin at certain positions, it’s going to take some time to get these guys up to speed.

  • Bill Nichols

    We’ll take him……. If he’s worth a shit. I am sure Telesco won’t be taking any trash, unless of course we get more desperate than currently for depth. Big boys need to play smart, and stay healthy. We have a decent core, just need some breathing room. Oh, and a DX type receiver would be nice. God did we hit the lottery last year when he came on board. Sux he got hurt, he was going to do huge things for us this year. Next year DX, next year.
