Now I hope we can sign Jarrett Johnson for cheap.

Also I read that Nakamura wanted to go somewhere that he has a chance to start, so it looks like it isn't strictly a ST signing.


Fail. Johnson been with the chargers for days

5' 10 and 200 lbs is good size. If he plays half as good as Ed, i'm thinking he starts.

Good signing if the $ is right... at worst he's a special teams beast and at best he will push/replace Martin at FS.

Don't discount the fact that this kid has been spelling Ed Reed for 4 years... some of that had to rub off on him.

Edit: he's also got a cool name.

if the kid works out...even as a ST beast. He will need a nickname. Nakamura just doesn't roll off the tongue.

solid signing for special teams. hopefully he's good enough on his own to make the secondary better as well.

hopefully steve wilks can help him grow as a safety.

How about Haruki since that's his name?

Maybe "The Nak" or just Nak.
reminds of this though. so maybe not.

Kamikaze for the nickname...although a tad controversial I'm sure.

How about we see what he can do before we give him a nickname?

japanese guy?

When he tackles somebody, his teammates will point at him and yell "Godzilla!"

(actually, he grew up in Ohio)

From what I've been reading, his whole family is big into judo, including his mom who's said to be a black belt and his sister who's a national champ.
