Another Defensive Player Is Now Available For The Chargers

The San Diego Chargers still need depth on the defensive side of the football. There have been a couple of young defensive linebackers that have been released in the last couple of days that should perk the interest of Tom Telesco. I already wrote about former Houston Texans LB Sam Montgomery the other day. This post will be about former New Orleans Saints LB Martez Wilson.

Wilson was just let go by the Saints in order to make room for another quarterback on their roster. He is an athletic linebacker that played with Corey Liuget in college. He was selected by the Saints in the 3rd round of the draft and could add some depth to the linebacker group. He can play in a multiple different spots for the defense. He has played as a middle linebacker and he also has experience getting after the quarterback off of the edge. He could be used in all kinds of different areas for our defense.

This could be one of those chances for Tom Telesco to add another piece to the defensive side of the football. He could cut Bront Bird and help develop Wilson on defense with the rest of the guys.

    Why was a 3rd rounder released? Suspicious.

    Id agree with bringing them in for a tryout but need 2 o-linemen first to make a 7 man unit, We’re one injury away from playing Kwame.

      I think Payton was trying to protect the practice squad QB they moved to the active roster.

    Wilson is a very intriguing young prospect. Tons of speed for a LB and a high sack ratio in such a small pro sample size. I’m curious as to why he never got more game reps in NO?

    Sold
    Make it so T^2 :)

    The Bolts brought in LB Adrian Robinson today don’t know much about dude. Wilson seems fast bet he gets snatched up quick.

    I wanted Martez (super tez) Wilson so bad in the draft that would be amazing if we got him.

  • jamfed

    He’d be an ILB in a 3-4 base, and SD has plenty of those: (Butler, Te’o, Bird, Gachkar and Walker)

      he has the versatility to come off the edge also. You would keep Bird over bringing in a guy like Wilson?

  • blu3ny3llow

    I’d go for it if the price is right..sorry Bird…gotta go

  • Gunnar Martin

    Bring him in!! Give the guy a shot. He’s obviously got the talent. A little discomforting that the Saints would cut someone that they drafted so high so soon, but if he’s still probably good enough to get on our active roster. Bird, you suck. Let’s do this roster another favor and swap the two guys. I trust that you can do this TT!

  • Rob Base

    Damn Raiders snatched him up!
