Chargers Morning Dump

By Ernie Padaon

Chargers safety Eric Weddle to the Jaguars: The Jaguars were terrible in pass defense last season, finishing last in the league in net yards per pass play, and they had a revolving door at safety. They do like strong safety Courtney Greene, but they need a ball-hawking, rangy safety. Weddle is that guy. San Diego would love to have him back, and they might get him back, but look for Jacksonville to make a push to get him if he’s on the market. He’s the type of player Jaguars general manager Gene Smith loves: Hard-working and not a troublemaker in the locker room. Oh, by the way: He can also cover.
