I'll go ahead and start the obligatory "what are the chances we get him" thread.

Not sure how good he is anymore, but he did play in SD so I'd say we are prob 50/50 to get him.

The fact that he played in San Diego for a while definitely makes it a possibility. But only if he is willing to take the veteran minimum.

I'll say around 0%.

I'd venture to say that it's because he has done little to nothing for the past 6 years.

I'm sure he has to clear waivers and I'm 99.9% sure it won't happen but.........................anything is possible.

Vets don't have to clear waivers.

I'd say the fact that he played for the chargers instantly doubles his chances for landing here. From 0% to 0%.

Probably not, competition is already set at DE.

We already have an injury prone LB in TD. This signing wouldn't make any sense as well.

If we picked him up I highly doubt he would play OLB, much more likely he would be a situational pass rusher at DE. Decent shot he would be better than Keiser or Applewhite. Would only want him for the minimum though.

If that's what position he would play I could see that.

I doubt better than Keiser. Dude has stepped up and may find himself getting more snaps across from CJ than Hardy does this year.
