News broke a few minutes ago that the Chargers have re-signed Eric Weddle. The Colts were one of six teams trying to ink the safety from Utah, but in the end he opted to stay in San Diego. The other top caliber safety in this year's free agent crop, Quintin Mikell, signed with the Rams yesterday.
Speaking of the Rams, they are active in trying to sign Melvin Bullitt as well, per JMV at 1070 The Fan. Bullitt, who has been the starting safety for the Colts the last three years, also has interest from the Arizona Cardinals. This is interesting because the Rams, like the Colts, were supposedly pressed against the cap with huge money invested in Sam Bradford, Chris Long, and Jason Smith. Yet, they still found a way to get Mikell, and are trying to team him with Bullitt.
So, yeah. It's starting to look like 2011 is another Aaron Francisco year, which means this team has absolutely no shot at winning a Super Bowl. Don't know what Chris Polian is doing over at West 56th Street, but as of right now he is most certainly not building a championship caliber roster.
But, hey, at least we're still keeping Kelvin Hayden (begins vomiting). Oh, and Weddle is now teamed with Bob Sanders in San Diego (vomits more).
