Na'il Diggs Signed By San Diego Chargers To Add ILB Depth

The Chargers are still concerned about their depth at the inside linebacker position. Their next attempt to address this problem is the signing of 11-year veteran Na'il Diggs. Diggs played for St. Louis last year, but had extended stays in both Green Bay and Carolina before that. His experience has been as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 defense and he's started in over 130 games there. However, he's not a big passrusher (11.5 sacks in 11 seasons) so his skills translate better to the 3-4 ILB position.

It's an interesting signing to be sure. What does this say about the health of Stephen Cooper and Jonas Mouton? Will Cooper still make the team or reach an injury settlement? Does it mean some of the special teams specialists who are listed as ILBs (Bront Bird and Andrew Gachkar) will get cut? We'll just have to wait and see.
