Even though the San Diego Chargers had a very good defense last year, they decided to bring in the veteran leadership of Bob Sanders and Takeo Spikes.
Both Sanders and Spikes are going to start for the Chargers and hopefully make a good defense great.
Sanders had been an amazing playmaker for the Indianapolis Colts, but he hasn't been able to stay on the field. Giving Sanders a one-year deal, the Chargers obviously think he is worth the small risk.
A slightly bigger risk was giving Spikes a three-year deal, because he has also been plagued by injury, but the move was important in bringing unmatched experience at the middle linebacker spot.
The Chargers are a team stacked with talent, and if the two can play 16 games each, the team has to be a favorite to win the AFC West and possibly the AFC.
