In a move that should upgrade the interior of a secondary in flux, the San Diego Chargers have signed free agent safety Kwamie Lassiter, one of the
top players still available in the unrestricted pool.
Lassiter, 33, signed a three-year contract, details of which were not yet available
The veteran free safety had played his entire eight-year career with the Arizona Cardinals before becoming an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Although Lassiter started all 16 games in each of the last four seasons, the Cardinals made little effort to retain him.
The former University of Kansas standout, signed by the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent in 1995, registered 119 tackles in 2002, third-most on
the team, and also had two interceptions and eight passes defensed.
Thats a huge addition to their defense which is reeling from the loss of All-Pro MLB Junior Seau. I remember watching Kwame blanketing Cowboys
receivers, he's a good cover corner.
