    Chargers agreed to terms with DE/OLB Dwight Freeney, formerly of the Colts, on a two-year contract.
    33-year-old Freeney recorded 12 tackles and five sacks in the Colts' 3-4 defense last season, but it wasn't a particularly strong fit for his skill set. He was expected to eye a return back to the 4-3, but money talks and the Chargers had a huge need for a pass rusher after losing Melvin Ingram to a torn ACL. Freeney should see significant snaps opposite Jarret Johnson, and the Chargers have already stated that they could tinker their defense to better suit the veteran. Freeney will not lack scheme familiarity. He played in Chuck Pagano's defense in 2012, and Chuck's brother John is the Chargers' defensive coordinator.

    I think he ends up signing with us or retiring. It looks as though the market has made it clear: take what you can get or hang up your cleats.

    Eh Morgan has been somewhat lack luster but he's been coming on. I'm not saying it's guaranteed but neither is abe

    Morgan really came on strong during the second half of the season. I think the main problem is that we want Abraham is a situationial pass rusher, while he wants to be a full time starter. We already have two starting DEs in Morgan and Wimbley, both of which are long term prospects for the team, while Abraham is on the last leg of his career.

    Also, if Freeney was able to get over 4.3 million a year, I don't want to imagine what Abraham thinks he is worth. :irked:

    Abraham is frankly better than Wimbley or Morgan, even if he is "on the last leg of his career."

    He can't be worse than Kearse during his second stint with the Titans.
