With free agency set to begin in 3 days, teams are FINALLY allowed to start talking to other FA's from other teams. Now we can debate on whether they have already been doing this, but as today is the first day it is "legal" reports are coming out as to who teams are talking too.
After years of minuscule cap space and AJ Smith, the Chargers have rarely been tied to exciting or even widely recognizable names. That changed today. Tom Telesco has money in to spend and apparently he intends to use it.
As we started looking through twitter today, taking special care to avoid fake accounts (there is a special place in hell for those people), the Chargers started getting linked to some big names. Tom Telesco and his staff have the phones very busy right now.
Then, not to be outdone by national football media members, the UT's Michael Gehlken dropped a bomb of his own.
Those are some huge names, and all would make a positive impact on the team (in varying degrees). Keep checking back with BFTB for more rumors and names as they come out, especially if you don't have twitter. It is crunch time for teams to get their own FA's signed before the floodgates open on the 10th, so we could see news on Brandon Flowers, Ryan Mathews, and others in the next few days.
Finally here is one bit of news from another team and who they are talking too that will make a bunch of fans happy, I know it made me happy.
