I'd expect GB to show some interest being that he has connections with Ted Thompson and the fact that we need a SS to start alongside Nick Collins.

Ted Thompson was a real genius bringing in Marquand Manual. That worked out well.

What does that have to do with anything? If you're going to make a comment atleast try to put some thought into it. So by your logic, since one of his free agent signings didn't pan out then he shouldn't bother looking at any other talented fa's? Manual was a decent player when he was at Seattle until he got injured, it was clear last year that he still wasn't 100%. Who knows he may still emerge as the starter now that he's had time to properly recover.

Last weekend he was basically in NOLA for three days and left without a contract. Bleh.

I'm surprised the Chargers haven't made a run at him. We need a new SS after Kiel was cut. Hamlin would fit in at either free or strong because the two positions are basically the same in our defense. I guess that club fight he got into called his character into concern and we didn't want to take a chance with him.

It would be awesome if the Eagles or the Texans could land Hamlin. Both teams need safety help. I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a good sized contract, so many teams have safety needs and he's the cream of the crop in FA.

I think the reason why Hamlin hasn't been approached yet is because there is still a huge medical concern about his long term health.

I don't think there will be many teams willing to give him a huge payday that he is looking for.

Oh I'm sure we could sign him if we wanted. But I don't see it happening unless you feel like going into cap hell again.
Someone from the official chargers website has done a better job than me of explaining why we won't be going after big names like Hamlin, or even Grant (who I want).

Thunderstruck:
One of the reasons we're inactive in free agency is because we just don't have that much money left under the cap. Back on March 3rd we were at around $12.2 million under the cap. Since then we've signed Dielman, Withrow, and Floyd. That's another $8 million at least.

Everyone remembers that we were supposed to be over $20 million under the cap this offseason. And then everyone forgets about all the players we've signed. We've signed 14 players since the offseason began, including sizeable contracts to Dielman and Phillips and a high tender of $2.3 million to Michael Turner. (I think a lot of people are under the mistaken impression that Shaun Phillips contract is $17 million for 6 years. That's wrong. $17 million is what he's guaranteed. His contract is more likely pays him $4.5 to $5 million per year under the cap.)

The money goes quickly when you move quickly to retain players.

I would be surprised if we're more than $5 or (at the most) $6 million under the cap right now, and we know that AJ likes to keep $2 or $3 million available in case we need to acquire a player in an emergency, like when we got McCardell to replace Caldwell in '04.

We may be able to unload Turner's $2.3 million if we trade him. But beyond that we're pretty tight on money now. This is why I laugh when people say we've "done nothing" this offseason. That's wrong. We've signed a whole bunch of guys. We just aren't spending the money on other teams' guys.
Also, the league has reduced our salary cap number. While the salary cap is increasing to $109 million this year, our salary cap is less than $107 million.

We had a player or two earn some "unlikely to be earned incentives," money that was not accounted for under last year's cap but the player earned as incentives, and when that happens the number is deducted from the team's next-years salary cap availability. Our salary cap is $106.7 million for 2007, not $109 million.

Yes, I think our available money has become very lean indeed.

I doubt it. Remember, Hamlin is more of a run stopping in the box type safety, whereas Collins is athletic enough that many teams scouted him as a possible CB.
