    He's not Sergio Brown, so I like it

    Good depth/camp fodder.

    Definitely not anything close to a solution.

    If only he could be as good as the Pats last Saftey from the Cuse.

    Right now a JAG is a significant improvement from Sergio Brown or Matt Slater or any other current back-up safety on the roster.

    BB's job, make the team better. This guy is no stud but is better than a few of the stumps we have listed on the 2011 roster in the safety position, assuming he plays STs.

    Sports Hub is reporting we are looking at Landry too.

    Sign them both and the secondary is better. And I hope all the moaning stops.

    Hmm we sit and watch the insanity for a few hours then we look into a few players in a postion which is IMO our biggest need. If we sign these two guys neither spectacular but upgrades a position of need then I will be happy with FAency thus far.

    Landry is the bigger name but Gregory is more of the coverage player so lets get both.

    Isn't Landry a SS? If you've seen him recently, he's almost the size of a LB now. I'm sure a Chung/Landry backfield would be great against the run but struggle against the pass.

    I don't get Landry. Too much of a SS who's biggest weakness is in coverage. Not exactly what we need at safety. Not to mention the injury issues and the contract it would take to get him.

    Color me unimpressed. I think I'd rather address issue through the draft.

    Enough so that chasing him now is bad prioritizing

    I hardly consider someone coming to visit the Pats to be the Pats chasing them. You act like they can't be in contact with more than one FA at a time.

    Gregory would be nice depth, given what we have. I've no qualms.

    This will be some competition for camp...I'd expect him to be camp fodder. He has STs value and can play as a hybrid CB/FS but his cover skills are average.

    Saying that, I'd take him over Nate Jones and Antwaun Molden.

    Yes, that's exactly it. The team that has signed nobody, unless they finalized the deal with their own ST player, is all about multitasking with the better players in the league.

    Come on, now. They're bargain shopping already. That's fine, but let's not be foolish as fans enough to buy into Steve Gregory.

    To be fair, it's not like there are splashes to be made at safety. Landry's probably the best one left, and the Pats are apparently currently pursuing him.

    I'm not going to get in depth about this, so I'll just leave it as my personal opinion. You can check the Charger forums. Here's an OP from one of them:

    I'm not saying Gregory is any great shakes, but come on. Bringing him in for a visit doesn't mean they're prioritizing him.

    If we had anything at safety last year to pair with Chung then I would not like this so much but we had nothing. Also you responded to my statement about two players by pointing out the weakness' of one while ignoring thats the others strength.

    Not sure how anyone can sit there and not think that Landry is an upgrade over Ihedibo and seeing as we had a CB filling the coverage safety role not sure how anyone can sit there and say that Gregory is not an upgrade?

    Bottom line is we are kicking the tires on a couple of players who are better than what we had at their positions last year.

    Juxtapose that with what would have made everyone happy replacing either Carter or Anderson with Williams would have made everyone happy yet Williams may or may not put up double digits sacks but certainly would cost ten times that of Carter or Anderson last year.

    Dont get me wrong I would have been as siked as anyone to get Mario but that doesnt mean I cant be happy about plugging what I considered our biggest hole even if that plug is average it is still better that the seive of a plug we had last year.

    I would say yes to all three of those players.

    I don't really care for Landry, but I assume the coaching staff will utilize him in a role that will suit his skill set.
