    Bhawoh Jue ditched Green Bay for San Diego - and it wasn't for the weather.

    Jue, the only significant free agent the Chargers signed last offseason, is vying for the starting free safety spot That opportunity - where he must unseat two-year starter Jerry Wilson - was what made San Diego so appealing after spending his first four seasons in Green Bay.

    "At this point of my career, I wanted a chance to start," said Jue, who has 11 career starts.

    Jue bounced between cornerback and safety with the Packers. Now he's aiming at free safety, and trying to overcome the veteran Wilson.

    To date, he still has some road to cover.

    "Right now there is still a learning curve; the defense is completely different," Jue said about switching to the Chargers? 3-4 alignment. "In the (Green Bay) scheme, I knew when to be aggressive and when not to be. I knew my personnel pretty well and was totally comfortable in the defense.

    "Now I'm really trying to get completely comfortable with the defense by the first preseason game."

    That comes Thursday night, when the Chargers visit Green Bay. Jue was hopeful he would make his return as a starter, but that won't be the case.

    "Jerry is ahead," said Jue, who had 34 tackles and an interception last year. "No. 1, the playing field isn't exactly even due to the fact I'm just learning. I'm trying to learn as much as I can so when we get into the preseason games I can let it loose."
