    CB Dunta Robinson and Darren Sharper have become Free Agents. The Saints won't tag Sharper, and the Texans have reported they are done with Robinson.

    Either player would BOOST the Chargers defense.

    Just sayin'...:icon_shrug:

    Bring in Sharper after we lose Sproles. I'm all for it. He could win Super Bowls in back-to-back seasons.

    Lucky bastard.

    actually, can't the chargers pick up a free agent now because we lost Ladanian. WE had to loose a player to be able to get a free agent player. WEre gonna need a cb if we let cro leave(kicked out the door).

    Depends on how much $ both want. Sharper I know is getting up there in age, but I would love to have his veteran leadership on the defense. Robinson good too, but has some character issues early on and not a game changer. AJ usually doesn't go for the expensive FA's, but I think for once he should. This Charger team will be in the playoff mix again.

    Sharper would be an excellent addition , despite his age, he has a few years left in him yet and has been solid every year since he entered the league. Get rid of Cro and get Sharper.

    That rule only applies to players whose contract has expired. LT does not count since he was cut.

    The chargers will not likely play in the FA market for any top-tier players. Heck in normal years they did not go after big FAs.

    The chargers do not have any high $$$ UFA hitting the market with the CBA no-cap rules turning all the big players, Merriman, VJ, McNeil and Floyd, into RFA. The rules prevent the chargers from dropping big $$$ on anyone since they were part of the final 8 playoff teams. The 4 that lost(SD being 1) can sign 1 FA for max of 5.5Mil in the first year salary in addition to any UFA they lose. Any additional FA they sign for each they lose, their salary can not exceed the salary of the player lost.

    This is about the third time I've read this and even the third time through, it sounds like a dumbass rule if you ask me.

    I'd love to get Sharper in at a reasonable price for 2 years. He's still productive, would be a great mentor for young guys like Ellison & Spillman, & a veteran presence in the locker room.

    LT doesn't count because he was cut. Only players who are FA's due to expired contracts count. So once Sproles is allowed to walk, we will be able to replace him and sign out 1 additional player.
