Chargers | Impressed with Dwight Freeney

The San Diego Chargers were impressed with their visit with free-agent LB Dwight Freeney (Colts), and head coach Mike McCoy would consider altering their defensive scheme to accommodate him. The Chargers use a base 3-4 defense, but Freeney was less effective in that setup with the Indianapolis Colts last season when he moved to outside linebacker. Freeney is a top priority for the Bolts after they lost LB Melvin Ingram (knee) to a season-ending knee injury last week.

Fantasy Tip: Freeney isn't a very good fit at all for another 3-4 defensive scheme, which is why the Bolts are considering changing their defense around to fit him. This probably isn't the best idea, either, but they seem desperate with Ingram out for the year and Manti Te'o in his first season. Freeney probably isn't worth an IDP draft pick if he signs with SD or another 3-4 defensive club.
