    Well, at least they won't have any grotesquely oversized lineman requiring a releveling of the field from time to time. Any body know where Walter Thomas will be killing grass?

    Upon further reflection, all the rest will have to keep up with Mike and Quinton.

    Jermaine Race sounds pretty good:

    Hard to translate division II numbers, but had almost 7,000 career yards, so he can't suck. Not sure if he can play basketball or not.

    They are Undrafted college players. They mostly just come on on like ten thousand dollar signing bonuses for training camp and hope to get signed to the team or practice squad.

    Notable charger free agents are-

    Anotnio Gates
    Kris Dielman
    Eric Parker
    Stephen Cooper

    Since we used to lack talent on this team there was a good shot at a UDFA making the team but now it's going to be pretty tough. Maybe a gaurd or two and perhaps the corner Arline for depth.

    We should have signed 10 NT and 10 guards.
