When you have Tom Telesco as your general manager, it's easy to ignore a lot of his off-season moves. But, when you look at the free agents that were signed from last year and how they contributed to the team's performance, it gives you more interest then you could ever imagine. For example, a lot of fans weren't even sure if King Dunlap was going to make the roster and now most of us believe he is a top 10 tackle in the NFL. With that being said, I decided to try to find a little more information on Cordarro Law because he could end up being the next sack leader for the Chargers.
Cordarro Law attended Southern Mississippi University at 6'1 and 254 pounds. Statistically, his junior year was his best season with the golden eagles; Law started in all 12 games and led the team with 47 tackles (27 solo). He also had 11.5 tackles for loss paired with forcing 4 fumbles and recovering 2 of them. In result of all of this, Law was a second team All-Conference USA selection. In college, he was known as an athletic defensive lineman with good hands. So why did Law end up as a rookie undrafted free agent? Well there was a lot of question about his size and in turn he switched from being a defensive tackle to a defensive end/outside linebacker. So the only real chance scouts got to watch Cordarro Law in his future NFL position was at his pro day which ultimately just wasn't enough for them.
Law spent his training camp in 2012 with the Seattle Seahawks. Eventually though, he was cut from the team. Before the Chargers signed him, the Falcons, Patriots, and Jaguars were all interested in Law.
In the Canadian Football League, Cordarro Law played for the Calgary Stampeders. Last season, he had 44 tackles and 14 sacks. In the CFL, Law was known as one of the best players in the league and his ability to put pressure on the quarterback was his best attribute. As far as his team goes, the Stampeders were ranked number one in their division and were heavy favorites to win the grey cup.
I'm not saying all of this because I think Cordarro Law is the next Cameron Wake, but because there isn't much else to talk about and anything could happen in the NFL. At 25 years old, Law still has a lot of football left in him.
