Doesn’t Sound Like Nick Barnett Will Be Coming Out West

By Ernie Padaon

Kevin Acee shut down my hopes and dreams of Nick Barnett joining Takeo Spikes and Shaun Phillips as linebackers in this defense when he tweeted this:

RT @Ryan_Reyes32: @AdamSchefter @sdutChargers @ClaytonESPN News on N. Barnett? >Not San Diego. Will get more $ in DET, CHI or PHI.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet ReplyS.D. U-T ChargerssdutChargers

I guess I was dreaming more than I should have, but now I have to move onto another dream for the middle of the defense.

Next player on the list is SDSU product Kirk Morrison. He is coming off of a bad year in Jacksonville, but has always been a solid contributor when he was on the Oakland Raiders. He has never made it to the playoffs in his career and could get that opportunity here in San Diego.

I don’t want to give up on the Barnett-Spikes middle of the defense, but I have moved on and am now focused on a Morrison-Spikes middle. Still sounds good and would be an upgrade over last season. Let’s make this happen AJ!
