    The Chargers have been busy scouring the available defensive tackles they can plug in after Jamal Williams was placed on injured reserve.

    On Monday, they will bring in Alfonso Boone, who was released earlier this month by the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Boone, 33, has never played in a 3-4 defense. He did play for Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera and defensive line coach Don Johnson in Chicago.

    Boone (6-3, 305) started 19 games over the past two seasons for the Chiefs.

    If Boone passes a physical, he could be signed today, or the Chargers could opt to move on to their next option. Sources said they have at least one other player in mind if they opt to not sign Boone.

    As long as Hart has a job, this guy Boone won't be the worst scrub we have.

    He's a scrub that hasn't done jack with any team he's ever been with BUT he and Ron Rivera worked together


    No offense but I'd swear Rivera is the new Schottenheimer - hiring and finding all sorts of old players who he used to play with that weren't all that good (Stephen Alexander, Tamerick Vanover, etc)

    Totally. If they haven't called him yet, there must be something really scary in his closet.

    whose available that you would prefer? seems like slim pickings unless they can do a trade... which they still might do.
