A little over a week ago, we asked you if the Los Angeles Chargers would be better off re-signing Jahleel Addae to a market value contract or allowing him to leave in free agency. Only 435 of you participated in the poll, but a healthy majority of your favored bringing back the hard-hitting, oft-injured safety for at least another season.
Both Jamie Sewell and Lee Bedrouni agreed on quite a bit in their assessments of Addae. Addae is neither great nor terrible. He is a very average safety with some qualities that are beneficial and some that are decidedly not. It is difficult to disagree too much with that general sentiment about Addae’s play. Where they differed was in their conclusion based on that assessment. Jamie felt that the likely price tag for such a player would be low and thus worth paying. Lee argued that Addae’s frequent inability to take the field due to injury made it a mistake to rely on him.
Apparently, the majority disagreed with the old line about your best ability being your availability and supported the decision to re-sign Addae this offseason.
