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.
