Signing Sanders a good move for Chargers

I love the San Diego Chargers' signing of Bob Sanders to a one-year deal.

Sanders, if healthy -- and, yes, that's a big if -- is a quality player. So why not take a chance on a one-year deal?

If Sanders can stay on the field, San Diego has upgraded the back end. If not, it won't cost them much -- if anything.

When Sanders is on the field, he is a disruptive force who can help the San Diego defense. He could team with free safety Eric Weddle -- provided he doesn't leave in free agency -- to give San Diego a nice 1-2 punch at safety.

Sanders, who has played nine games in the past three seasons because of injuries, is worth the risk. 

Kudos to A.J. Smith for taking it.

After all the injuries last season, maybe the chargers will get lucky with this? I don't know what they signed him for and how the deal is structured, but a one year investment is the way to do it with Sanders. He will likely get hurt but hopefully will be there long enough to mentor Stuckey and even Weddle a little.  I like this opportunity, but my eyes are wide open about how likely he is to make it through a full season.

I cannot believe anyone would sign this guy.  Not only is he a huge waste of cash & resources.. but it might be best for his own health.  In a "protect the athlete" kind of world these days, he needs protection.  We just read about Butler from GB & Green how they are in pain & safety is the toughest position on the planet.. and then someone signs a guy that played 9/48 games, minus playoffs.  He missed 39 games.  He is one that should be forced retired, for his own good.

Whoa! Your assuming a guy takes or formerly took steroids based on his past injuries? Enough said!

Yes its great getting Sanders, but he is getting injured all the time, and I think his injuries are very similar to somebody who has taken steroids. I do think my San Diego Chargers got a steal here just the same. I am more worried about resigning key free agents, then Sanders taking up a roster spot.

Well reserve judgement until I see the payout.  If significant and w/o injury clause, why not use that $ for a known commodity like Jackson, Floyd, Weddle, Burnett, Barnes, etc. ?
