Chargers Re-Sign Richard Marshall


The San Diego Chargers signed their corner, they re-signed Richard Marshall to a contract. He is veteran depth for the roster and the team will be looking for their stud corner in the draft. This draft is full of cornerback help and the Chargers will not be sneaking up on anyone when they select the top cornerback on the board in the first round. They may want to do it twice in the first 3 rounds.

With Richard Marshall back on the roster and with the recent signing of Brandon Ghee, Michael Gehlken says the team will be looking to add a corner through the draft and will not be looking at the other corners in free agency. It was not the most ideal situation going into free agency, but there are a lot of talented corners in the draft and the team will need to add a few of them.

Shareece Wright will be starting at one side and Richard Marshall will compete for the starting job on the other side. Brandon Ghee will be in the mix. Marcus Gilchrist will compete for the nickel job. Steve Williams will be back from injury and showed flashes in the preseason. Crezdon Butler and Marcus Cromartie will also compete for a job,

Steve Williams might become a solid player and Wright did much better at the end of the year. Marshall is decent depth, but a starter is needed. The plan will be fine if the team gets a couple of good corners in the draft.

    Well if we draft Fuller or verrett we will be fine. Also Gilchrist could move to corner.
    Expect the secondary to be better than last year but probably only average.

    Peter I take back my statement …we won’t sign a true starter cb in fa afterall …

    • Eli Rodriguez

      I say we draft fuller or Roby first round. Trade up in 2nd round for Van Noy. Get Daquan Jones in 3rd. Then draft Ej Gains with the next pick if available. Our defense won’t be amazing next season with this draft. But I think these players can develop into great players.

      • Julien Bélair

        We would all be so freaking happy if it happens and it might!

        • Eli Rodriguez

          It’s a reasonable Draft. The corners could get a year under they’re belt and play amazing next season. I also want La’Damian Washington. He’s a tall reciever and he’s quick. I think he ran in the 4.40s.

          • Julien Bélair

            There is too many good wr I don’t know which one I want!

          • Eli Rodriguez

            I like Cody Hoffman too. He reminds me of Allen. But for some reason no one’s really taking about him. He was productive in college too. He’s a late round pick

          • Diegoblue

            I like Hoffman too.. People are sleeping on him because he didn’t light it up at the combine 4.65 40 and only 27.5 vertical which calculates to explosion even though he was very productive in college. Not sure if T2 will look his way since he said Speed is what he’s trying to get added to our team but we could steal him late

          • navw21

            I really like Jordan Matthews of Vanderbilt. I think he would be an awesome #2 behind Allen.

          • Julien Bélair

            I like him too. Matthews and Adams are very good and similar

      • Padraigh Keogh

        What position does Jones and Gains play? Like your first two picks.

        • Diegoblue

          Jones is a DT and Gaines is a CB two good picks if it happens that way

          • Eli Rodriguez

            Jones is a little iffy for me. But he has potential. I would pick him in the 3rd strictly out of need.

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            All the NT’s in the draft are iffy

          • Eli Rodriguez

            That’s why I think it would be smarter to use a lower Draft pick and try one. Instead of wasting a pick on Nix and he doesn’t work out.

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            same here

          • tubbs45

            Drafting a prospective NT to start is a losing proposal, with rare exceptions. I know everybody want a CB, but we really need a legit stating NT…

      • Xia-Dawn

        Roby is a srub with bad hip placement, and is susceptible to double moves. He recovers and hide’s a lot of his faults through his elite speed, he really isn’t a #1 CB.

        1.Verret
        2.Fuller
        3.Dennard

        Best CB’s imo

  • Tazzster

    Marshall? WHY?

    • Julien Bélair

      Capable starter great depth and got experience with us

    • Gunnar Martin

      Doesn’t mean he can’t be cut later on. But since we’re not in an ideal situation, he provides serviceable depth.

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        I pray for the day when the word “serviceable” isn’t used to make ourselves feel better about having one of the worst defensive backfields in the league… again.

        • Gunnar Martin

          Right?! So tired of that. We need a miracle to get there any time soon.

        • arnie

          Context.

        • NativeSanDiegan

          I’m tired of always getting on here 15 hrs late, but I know that at least you will read this Pete. So much I want to say. I really believe Stevie Williams will be an outstanding corner because of his height. I’ve seen it before. Can stick to receiver like glue because he can adjust very quickly due to height. Against taller receivers, sticks to their chest inside their arms and knocks ball loose with hands, helmet, when they are bringing it down. He jumps up when they’re coming down, and with his perfect position can get away with it. I don’t want 5 corners under 5’10″; an athletic, fast one who is 6′ with good feet and tackles is great but they don’t grow on trees. Also, all this talk about 2nd rate NT’s has me scratching my head. What do we know about the progress of Geathers and our other UFA from last year? They may both come out of nowhere this year or next, and we could have 2 very good NT’s who can spell each other. Stay fresh, both play in short yardage. Could happen. 75% chance IMO. There, got that out. About fa this year, I believe TT has done excellent job. Kept ALL of our valuable, young fa’s. When is the last time that’s happened around here? Signed the perfect rb that we Desperately needed. He is a consistent running and receiving stud. Just like Woodie was the perfect choice for us last year. Signed the quality lb depth we desperately needed. You don’t WIN a Championship without quality depth. Every team suffers key injuries. Every one. You can’t blame losses on injuries. We do need wr’s with speed. We only have 1 (KA) or 2(Malcolm IF he returns) real NFL receives. Maybe a third in Tutu. No burners. We also really do need a young, quality LT who has good feet, understands leverage against bull rushers, and can be developed into a quality run blocker who can get out front and block effectively on the 2nd level with wr’s & te’s blocking cb’s and safeties. A top quality Safety is also needed, and may already be on the roster. I would add DC, but who can we replace him with that’s better? Realistically we can have a Championship Team in 2-3 yrs. We already have a competitive team, and TT just got started 1 year ago and was severely hindered by terrible players with ridiculous salaries leaving him in salary cap hell, but he never once complained about it; he just went out, rolled with the punches, and worked with whathe had. Now we are a better, younger team headed in the right direction.
          Peter, if you want to edit this and post as an article, be my guest. Hey, it’s late and I’m lying in bed with my phone; forgive me if I’m a bit off.

          • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

            I love discussing football with you NSD!!! Even if you are late to the party, and live in a different time zone, I will always take time. I have saved your notification, and will give you my thoughts in the next day or so. It’s the wife’s birthday today, so I am sneaking responses.. hahaha.. and I have a lot to say to your good Input = )

          • NativeSanDiegan

            Wishing you a memorable, joyous evening with your “better half”. Take your time getting back to me. Aloha

          • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

            My late response… as promised ; )

            First… I am pretty excited about Steve Williams, too! He might be the only one I like out of all the CB’s we have.

            “I don’t want 5 corners under 5’10″; an athletic, fast one who is 6′ with good feet and tackles is great but they don’t grow on trees”. – I couldn’t agree more.

            “Also, all this talk about 2nd rate NT’s has me scratching my head. What do we know about the progress of Geather s and our other UFA from last year? They may both come out of nowhere this year or next, and we could have 2 very good NT’s who can spell each other. Stay fresh, both play in short yardage”. – We don’t know much, agreed… but, that’s a lot of “IF”.. they are still rookie UDFA’s IMO. We should have signed Terrence Cody… he was my pick in FA… even if Geathers & Jerideau both pan out.

            Could happen. 75% chance IMO. There, got that out. About fa this year, I believe TT has done excellent job. Kept ALL of our valuable, young fa’s”. – I like that, but I wanted just a LITTLE bit more.. not saying we should have gone on a spending spree, but one solid CB or NT would have been enough for me..

            “Signed the perfect rb that we Desperately needed. He is a consistent running and receiving stud. Just like Woodie was the perfect choice for us last year”. – Honestly, I’m a little nervous about him, but we’ll see. I consider Woodhead to be a much better player, but their skill sets are somewhat different.

            “Signed the quality lb depth we desperately needed. You don’t WIN a Championship without quality depth”. This is true… however, you can’t win with JUST depth, either.

            “Every team suffers key injuries. Every one. You can’t blame losses on injuries. We do need wr’s with speed. We only have 1 (KA) or 2(Malcolm IF he returns) real NFL receives. Maybe a third in Tutu. No burners. We also really do need a young, quality LT who has good feet, understands leverage against bull rushers, and can be developed into a q uality r un blocker who can get out front and block effectively on the 2nd level with wr’s & te’s blocking cb’s and safeties”. – Agree 100%

            “A top quality Safety is also needed, and may already be on the roster”. – I have been saying this for YEARS, and I hope that all these meetings with safeties in the offseason means that TT is FINALLY going to address this glaring hole.

            “I would add DC, but…. ” – Let me finish that sentence. BUT, Pagano has already been retained so nothing will change this season, unless he miraculously pulls his head out of his ass.

            “Realistically we can have a Championship Team in 2-3 yrs”. – I really hope so.

            “We already have a competitive team, and TT just got started 1 year ago and was severely hindered by terrible players with ridiculous salaries leaving him in salary cap hell, but he never once complained about it; he just went out, rolled with the punches, and worked with whathe had”. – I would really hope he rolled with the punches and didn’t complain… he is making a shit-ton of money to do it, and the last guy just got canned for not producing… that’s our ticket money that pays that salary.

            “Now we are a better, younger team headed in the right direction”. – We are a LITTLE bit better, I agree… let me explain… I think that McCoy & Whisenhunt could have had similar or better results than Norv did with the teams he coached over the last few years. The coaching has gotten better.. the talent has gotten better here & there.. but the defense has gotten far worse. but, I don’t blame TT for having almost nothing to work with last year… NOW, if he doesn’t play his cards right this year, the blame falls squarely on his shoulders. You can say he was handcuffed, and all of that… but, he let some key players walk, and hasn’t filled those holes adequately.. mainly on defense. He’s overachieving on offense, in my opionion, so it’s time to get SOMEWHAT better on D, asap.

  • Eli Rodriguez

    He did okay when he played. He wasn’t spectacular at all but decent.

  • 619rockstar

    I knew they were gonna do that, I just hope they draft a corner that will start right away for us, like fuller and Keenan did

    • Julien Bélair

      Fluker*

      • 619rockstar

        My bad meant to say fluker

  • Diegoblue

    This is cool for the depth .. Good to have capable bodies..

  • Julien Bélair

    Any chance we trade up for Gilbert if he drops out of the top 10?

    • Eli Rodriguez

      I hope not. I don’t really like Gilbert. Denmark imo is better.

      • Eli Rodriguez

        Dennard

        • Julien Bélair

          Verrett is better than dennard imo

          • Eli Rodriguez

            Yeah I think so too. But dennard has the size. Verrett is too small to handle being a number one corner.

          • Derek

            Yeah I’d go with that if ravens #1 corner wasn’t the same size and held megatron down.

          • Eli Rodriguez

            That’s true but those are very hard to come by. You never know Verrett could be best comer in this draft. I just don’t like his size. If he was an inch or two taller with that same skills then he would definitely be a shit ton better. I still like the guy a lot. I’m just not so big on his size.

    • Derek

      Small but it’s a possibility. Since we signed depth and it be nice for Tt to show he won’t always play it safe

      • Julien Bélair

        He’s like 10 pounds away from dennard. He can cover like no one else!!
        He can become a player like grimes Samuel or finnigan

    • Sergio Quintero

      Any trade up is no right now, how can they justify a trade up if they will not get starters from free agency, trading up means giving up picks.

      • Julien Bélair

        I agree …we shouldn’t but it still could happen if they like him

        • Sergio Quintero

          I guess if they trade up for somebody it has to be Nix, I don’t like the chances of any other NT to be a starter first year from this draft.

          • Julien Bélair

            If they want a true NT I agree. But they have not shown any interest in any NT during the fa so i’m not sure if their plan is to find a true NT or just rotate a fiew guys

  • diomar espinal

    Not to happy about the move. Guy is a can and i think people believe he is serviceable because he came in and did better then Cox. In reality they both sucked. I cant be mad at TT because i know we have chump change to play with but i cant say im excited about this guy being back with the team. Hopefully dennard falls to us at 25.

    • Julien Bélair

      Verrett over dennard imo

      • diomar espinal

        Well for the cover 3 scheme that pagano likes to employ then yes i might say verrett also. But if dwight and melvin can provide a solid pass rush when we rush 4, i think pagano will go back to that cover 2 and we will be playing more press man to man which in that case i want dennard instead all day. The kid has that same body type and play style as regis so id want that on my team all day.

        • Julien Bélair

          I watched some tape and verrett follow receiver step by step constantly… he can press… I think Dennard has a bigger bust potentiel

          • diomar espinal

            why do you think he has a bigger bust potential?

          • Julien Bélair

            Dennard has less fluid hips… he doesn’t posses elite top speed … doesn’t have a big body too match up against #1 receiver and he grabs a lot down field.

            Verrett is as good as anyone… If he was 6 foot he would be a top10 or top 5 pick in the draft. At 5’9′ 190 pounds he will be just fine with his play style. And if he isn’t able to play outside for some reasons he will be your starting nickel cb for the next 10 years.

    • Derek

      I agree he only provides depth outside he seemed to play better when Ingram came back and provided pressure. The only thing he has over cox is he prevents big plays and doesn’t totally fall apart in coverage.

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        He actually got burned quite a bit, actually.. but, he WAS better than Cox toward the end. However, out of all the CB’s that we had on the squad in 2013 (not named Wright, Williams, or Gilchrist) he was the only one I would have kept. Cox, Butler, and Patrick should all have been cut, and an affordable veteran should have been signed. It should look like this.. #1 veteran, #2 Shareece Wright, #3 Marcus Gilchrist, #4 Richard Marshall, #5 Steve Williams, #6 1-3 round draft pick. That would have been easy & affordable to make happen, and would have pretty much fixed our secondary. Instead, we have no true #1 CB, a guy playing #1 who is BARELY a #2, a guy playing #2 that is really a #4, and 2 rookies & another #4 fighting it out for last place. Makes no sense to me whatsoever. Signing a back up QB and a run blocking TE are much more important, I see.

        • NativeSanDiegan

          I see your point, Peter. Agree unless TT has something up his sleeve.

        • diomar espinal

          well stated. Its true though our # 1 is really a 2 and our # 2 is like 4th or 5th string on any other team in the league. These signings also had me confused at the beginning but then i realized what they are trying to do. Basically regardless of who we add on defense, i think TT knows we are going to have a hard time slowing down Peyton. So instead of addressing the defense he addressed our strength which was moving the chains. Adding another fresh RB and a really good blocking TE will allow us to again use our ball control offense which helped us play the broncos very well twice this season(first time worked better then the second obviously). Now i with the reports coming out of us also searching for a solid # 2 WR to pair with Keenan i feel a bit more comfortable with these signings because as i stated hes basically trying to build our strengths and possibly help the defense thru the draft.

          • Joel Ayala

            Amen to that. Loading up the Offense.. to keep teams O on side lines. Clock Control. Til next year when we have 38 mil under cap space or so

          • diomar espinal

            Now all we need is that solid number 2 that teams can respect. Honestly speaking, idk how you guys feel but why dont we cut Vincent Brown? After watching every game last year i just cant see how he has much value to our team. Why not free up that money and go after more athletic players because he sadly isnt cutting it. I was all for the team giving TuTu all VB’s snaps and that never happened. Then they inserted Eddie into the starting lineup and it gave us a different dimension. Idk but maybe other fans think he has some potential, i honestly dont see it. Hes 5’11 with no speed and no ability to beat press coverage. I really think we should free up that roster spot and take a chance on a more athletic body.

          • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

            Did you see how well that having a high powered offense thing worked for Denver in the Super Bowl though? 8 points.. and they have better weapons, better defense, and a better QB than we do. I feel what he is trying to do. I just don’t think it’s going to be enough. I know Indianapolis won a Super Bowl like that years ago.. but the league has changed. Last two Super Bowl winners had great defenses, and OK offenses. Why do you think Denver & New Orleans are loading up on top notch defensive players right now. It’s not because they are set on offense (which would be the obvious answer). It’s because they just got spanked like bitches on national television for not putting enough effort into their defense, and hoping that their offense would outscore everyone. It worked great for Denver until they got handled by Seattle, just like Seattle handled New Orleans twice in the same exact manner. Notice how balanced Seattle is? They don’t have a high scoring offense.. but they had Lynch, Tate, Wilson, Harvin, and a bunch of other “decent, but not horrible” talent. We are as unbalanced as it gets, and that’s not getting you a ring this year, or next. Not to mention, Weddle & Butler are the only two decent vets we have, and they really aren’t that old, and Butler didn’t make the Pro Bowl. We just have a bunch of newbs out there. Some of which won’t be here next year, and shouldn’t even be here this year IMO. Telesco can knock himself out building the offense. When I see him seriously address the defense (which is without adoubt the #1 priority this season) he won’t have my vote. Right now, he looks like a one trick pony, who is trying to re-build Indianapolis from yestrer-year in San Diego to me. It might work, but it probably won’t.

          • diomar espinal

            “Spanked like bitches on nation tv” LMAO that was hilarious because its true. But yea i see what your saying and deep down it does kind of feel that way that hes trying to build those old colts teams, But at the end of the day even though the Donald Brown signing was weird we just dont have money to get impact players right now. Hopefully hes holding out on FA to draft some difference makers on defense because thats what teams like Seattle did. Oooo one last thing Pete, it would help if we had a DC who played to the strengths of the players he has. Seattles cover 3 was amazing. Our Cover got teams down the field in 3 plays lol But yea like i said i agree with you and quite frankly im nervous but hey he doesnt have money so i guess as of now we have to give him time.

  • 619rockstar

    I think verrett could start for us right away

    • Julien Bélair

      And dominate

  • gpack17

    i really dont understand why everyone wants a receiver similar to allen…do people forget allen didnt really hit his stride until they changed wr slots with him..having a guy similar to him wont help and that guy will most likely end up backing up allen at that spot…im hoping we look at a guy like brandon coleman as a plaxico type receiver without the off field troubles..

    • Derek

      Allen didn’t hit his stride till he saw the field. Our initial roster was deep at wr but injuries to our outside recievers gave him a chance. I don’t remember him ever taking snaps from royal. He started outside because royal couldn’t and brown never stepped up. I don’t see what’s wrong with 2 Allen’s, not speedy but sure hands great routes and YAC. We have a red zone target in green n gates. I’d rather we get a burner on the other side to strech the field like Ty Hilton

      • gpack17

        if i remember correctly i thought i read something during the season saying it took brown and allen switching spots after 2 games after the injuries for allen to start producing..but i agree i would rather get a burner or i really would like a larger receiver who can make plays down the field much like a floyd or vj..i feel why vj excelled as compared to meachems speed because rivers doesnt have that deep pass to lead the receiver..his balls tend to float at around 40 yard passes and a big body like vj would go get those balls instead of letting it drop in his hands like how meachem had previously with brees

        • Derek

          Ur right we’d prob be better with a downfield big bodied contested catcher. But I think a average size reciever who can find gaps in zone n create separation on routes like I thought brown would could work too. I think that was meachems prob he can no longer create separation which is why he is subbed in in. The 4th qtr to take advantage of a rookie or a winded starter.

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Thats too bad if we really aren’t looking at any other veteran Cb’s, I guess TT trusts what he sees in the draft and like Ernie said maybe we double up on corner picks. I wonder if TT has a hidden gem he likes in the mid rounds, I can’t wait for the draft.

  • serg21

    So we’re depending on a rookie to save our corners now .. we couldn’t even bring in tillman or something wow telesco cmon

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Seriously. Telesco is clearly impressed by this group. Barring an unpredictable signing of a veteran CB, I don’t think this is fixing anything this season. Perhaps Ghee balls out.. I dunno.. guess we will find out.

      • arnie

        Like we always do. Training Camp makes fools, liars and genius of us all.

  • Sergio Quintero

    Not surprised they resigned Marshall, I am surprised the biggest investment of the offseason is a backup RB, I thought there was a high possibility they wouldn’t sign a big time CB, what I am perplexed by is where the Nose Tackle going to come from, they do know they have only one first round pick.

    There is little depth at NT position in the draft, and they are putting themselves in a Nix or bust position if they don’t sign a NT, if they draft Nix how many 2nd round corners would you trust to be an instant upgrade to Marshall, they will take their lumps.

    I would feel a whole lot better if/when they signed a capable NT, as of right now I’m perplexed by the positions they have given priority to.

    • Cooper

      Honestly I think they’ll go DT in the later rounds to build a rotation at the position. TT knows he can’t fix every area in one year and us fans should know that as well. This draft is deep in DB’s and WR’s but not so much for a true 2 gap NT. The best he can do is take one chunk out of the many holes this D has and fix it.

      • Sergio Quintero

        I have to admit I never thought Lissemore playing NT again might be the solution, call me unimpressed.

        But if the draft were held “today”, I think they pick a corner in the first round (Verret-Fuller the most logical) and have Lissemore be their guy.

        • Cooper

          it’s unrealistic to think that every position is going to be addressed in the offseason. If they attack our secondary in the draft than thats a step in the right direction, but even with that they may not. They decide to grab a WR or an OL, it really depends on what they need and who is the BPA when they go to pick. Its easy as an outsider to say we need this, this, and this. Those guys in the front office are looking at so manying things at once that we can’t comprehend any of it.

          • Sergio Quintero

            Agree, it a very real possibility that the best player at 25 will be a WR, not saying you should take one, but if a Lee/Beckham/Cooks is there they have to be part of the discussion.

          • Julien Bélair

            I would take Nix, verrett and maybe Ford before those

          • Sergio Quintero

            Agree exactly on the order, of those 3 I may like Ford the best, but the other 2 positions seems to be even bigger need.

          • Julien Bélair

            Well I am a huge verrett lover…

          • Sergio Quintero

            If were to put money on who the chargers pick I would put it on Verrett, super productive, instinctive, excellent in zone coverage. Skill set is just perfect for the off man stuff that Pagano loves.

          • Julien Bélair

            Also a very good and fearless tackler even at his size… I hope we get him

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          If Wilfork get’s released I would cut whoever possible to make that happen.

            In terms of talent I agree, but he wants out of the Pats because he wont take a paycut, the chargers just don’t seem like a team where he will find a windfall.

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            I think he makes 6.5? That would not be insane

  • Cooper

    This is purely a depth signing and gap filler for one year. I would guess TT will be looking heavy at CB due to the deep class. It’s tough to say definitively btw CB and WR because of his comments about wanting to add more speed, and the WR class is deep as well. WR or CB in the early rounds in what ever order would be sweet.

      2cb 2wr I have been saying it for more than a month

    2.1 mil left in CAP space. got make some cut or re-structures if we even want to sign our draft picks…
    Happy Friday!!!

    • Cooper

      It’s the 3rd day of FA, I wouldn’t be too worried, the cap space btw now and the start of the season will be fluid. Guys will get cut, new guys brought in, maybe some restructuring.

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        Drafting a guard that can start and then cutting Clary would pay for the entire draft’s salary. That should be a real possibility.

        • Sergio Quintero

          I’ll just start calling Clary “the damned” (from bedazzled), because this guy made a deal with the devil, no way is a guy this overpaid and this lucky so long, without something weird.

          • arnie

            Chargers needed bodies. Clary was under contract. it’s just that simple…

  • navw21

    With our two first draft picks we could go a couple of directions with NT and a CB or vice versa and be in good shape

    1. NT Louis Nix 2. CB Keith McGill, Marcus Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy
    or
    1. CB Bradley Roby, Jason Verrett, Kyle Fuller 2. NT Daquan Jones

    • Julien Bélair

      I like the second scenario

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      Isn’t Jones like a 4th round talent? Cant just wait picks for a need

      • navw21

        I used ESPN’s Draft Player rankings for a barometer and they have him as a late 2nd early 3rd grade. But who really knows, it’s a crap shoot in the end.

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          word, is his stock rising or something? I guess thats good if he is evaluated that high now.

          • Sergio Quintero

            Lets say teams will have him between round 2-4, I would feel better taking him in the 3rd round, but lets be honest he probably will be a backup to Lissemore year one.

          • gpack17

            more than likely most almost all of the dt prospects will be backing up lissemore…i would rather wait and pick up caraun reid or justin ellis later in the draft.

    • gpack17

      i would love the 1st option with nix but in round 2 i would definitely never take mcgill in round 2..i would prefer roberson or jean-baptiste..everyone is kind of hyped on mcgill because of his size but anyone who watches him on tape can easily see the guy isnt a shut down type of guy and doesnt make run stopping plays..
      if we dont take a nt in rounds 1 or 2 i wouldnt mind taking caraun reid or justin ellis in rounds 4 or 5…

      • navw21

        Yeah I should of added jean-baptiste in the first scenario he would definitely be in play.

  • Eli Rodriguez

    I have an idea what if the chargers signed Pat Sims. I don’t know much about the guy or even if he fits our system. He did put up good numbers for the Raiders last season. What do you guys think?

    • Sergio Quintero

      There is still useful guys out there and he’s one them, others: Sopoaga, Pickett, Aubrayo Franklin.

  • Sergio Quintero

    Any news on Hakeem Nicks guys, seems like the team that is most interested is the Panthers, but the chargers were mentioned?

    • Julien Bélair

      Panthers do not want him..colts do

  • 619chargers4life

    All the corners in FA are old anyway, it’s all good in the hood . We can draft a corner in the 1st or second and maybe TT pulls the rabbit out the hat like he did with Allen and draft , I believe his name is Arron Colvin .

    • gpack17

      difference between allen and colvin is allen either tore or sprained his pcl which isnt too bad of an injury..colvin tore his acl which is a huge procedure like ingram and taylor has had..with gilchrist possibly moving back to corner alongside, wright, ghee, marshall,and the return of williams i feel we could draft a corner or a safety at this point..

      • 619chargers4life

        Oh feel you but Colvin was on his way to possibly be the first corner off the board . Teams are not going to overlook that and if he falls to the later rounds it might be worth the wait .

  • afroamongfew

    Thankfully NONE of Marshall’s money is guaranteed, so we can cut him if he absolutely blows again. -shrug-

  • arnie

    Now that is a great move, Marshall replaced Cox and the defense simply improved. Marshall was good CB in miami, his release was a matter of numbers. For what they were paying him, they could get the same production from a cheaper player. What marshall did is bring his experience and stability to a young backfield. As a result Weddle, Addae and Wright were able to benefit from his coverage, over cox’s.
    Now, when the Chargers get the Stud CB in the draft, they can take their time and learn behind a player that has plenty of experience in the position. most importantly there is no rush for Steve Williams to be a star right now. Lastly he is a returner, so the learning curve is gone and that too, will lend itself to the youngsters coming in.
    Great TT build that depth.
