Tom Telesco is already doing work. He already is gathering in some talent for his team. He is looking in all directions to add talent onto his roster. He signed his second player from the CFL this offseason and hopes that he can find a gem out there. I love that he will go through the CFL or any other means in order to add some talent onto this roster.

The players from the CFL are not going to cost a lot. They are players that are looking to get their foot in the door and they are hungry. They missed out on an opportunity for the NFL before, but have not given up on that dream and the Chargers are going to give them that opportunity. There is not a huge risk signing these guys. They are not going to cost a ton of money.

Cordarro Law showed that he can get after the quarterback in the Canadian league. He played a whole season in the CFL instead of hanging around on a practice squad and was able to participate in some competition.

The Chargers also signed Dontrelle Inman from the CFL this offseason. Inman has the size that teams like from their receivers. He stands at 6-foot-3 and runs a 4.4-second 40 yard dash. He will compete for a  job and could  help fill the depth for the Chargers at wide receiver.

These players are hungry. They took some time in the CFL and that gave them some seasoning and now they will have their chance to hang with a team during their offseason training program and through training camp. Hopefully the Chargers will be able to develop this talent.
