Former Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Jarret Johnson signed with San Diego Chargers on Wednesday and called into WBAL radio on Thursday to discuss his departure from Baltimore.

The Chargers lost Vincent Jackson in free agency Tuesday but tried to make up for it by signing Robert Meachem. San Diego is paying Meachem $14 million guaranteed on a four-year $25.9 million deal. Vincent Jackson signed a five-year $55 million deal with the Buccaneers and $26 million is guaranteed. I have to say, I don’t like either deal very much.
Both players’ stats were...
While it may not be the big splash Patriots fans were hoping for, Bill Belichick appears to have found a new starting safety in six-year veteran Steve Gregory.
The former Charger brings starting experience, versatility and athleticism to a cripplingly-bad group of safeties from 2011.
In 15 games, Gregory recorded 67 tackles and a pick. His best season came in 2009 when he posted...

This year’s free agency frenzy continues with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers making a splash on the high seas, reeling in WR Vincent Jackson to a 5-year deal, first announced on the team’s twitter account and followed by an official press release.
The Buccaneers, owners of the most salary cap room in the league ($44.9 million), had the dough to spend, you could say.
