    Who's to say you can never go home again? Very good signing. Their linebackers will now be a strength.

          For a year anyway. Donnie doesn't have much in the tank. They should still get a LB in the draft, whether its Buster Davis later, or Willis in the 1st.

          Also, it never hurts to nab someone away from SD and expose some of the inner workings and tendencies of the players.

            It's a small upgrade over Mitchell, but not as much as many people on here will say. Edwards has been a little overated for a while now.


            Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

              I believe the opposite. I think he's underappreciated. It will be interesting to see him back in the 4-3, see how he can fare with avg. DTs in front of him.

                Interesting signing. Pushes LB into a day 2 area for them. Edwards probably has 1, at best, 2 solid years left. He should be fine in the middle. I'd assume Napolean Harris goes to the strongside, making Keyaron Fox a backup again. Fox deserves a starting shot, I think, but he'll be a solid number 4 for them.

                  I still like Willis on their team. Move him outside for a year, when Edwards is done, move Willis inside and don't miss a beat.

                  With aging players, injury is always a concern as well. Its nice to have that backup plan. With avg. DTs in front of him, and being relatively undersized, Edwards is more susceptible to injuries now.

                    I think in the short term.

                      Jamal Williams, Luis Castillo and Igor Olshansky have helped Donnie a whole lot more than the interior of the Chief's D-line will. I'm going to miss Donnie, but I don't think he'll be as successful in KC.

                        I think they have too many other concerns to justify a LB selection in round 1. A starting group of Johnson/Edwards/Harris should be fine, and Fox arguably deserved a shot to start this year. With DT, possibly DE (depending on the Allen situation), depth at CB, WR, OL all as areas that help is needed, I just don't think you can justify adding a linebacker to a group that, on paper, is a solid foursome.

                          A good signing in as much as a adequate linebacker but more so as bringing in another veteran to council and teach some of the younger guys and to gain a bit of knowledge about the Chargers.

                          Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.

                          So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                            Yeah...Im guilty of being a defense junky

                            Maybe they might make a push for Okeye now. They have needs yes, but if Herm likes Okeye enough, I can see him making an aggressive move to get him.

                              This is a great signing and it makes sense of the Harris signing now. Harris is not a good MLB, but I think he could be a good complement to Johnson & Edwards now at SLB.
