View Full Version : FA to be Dielman talks stalling
11-29-2006, 01:01 PM
Contract negotiations between the Chargers and left guard Kris Dielman reached a point last week where General Manager A.J. Smith took the rare step of speaking directly with Dielman's agent. According to sources, Smith spoke briefly with agent Mike McCartney. In contract talks, Chargers chief negotiator Ed McGuire is usually the only member of the organization to speak with agents. But those negotiations have stalled, and it is likely they won't resume until just before or after the free-agency period begin in February.

Good--maybe the Cowboys can make a spot for him on a Championship team......sound good huh?

Sure seems like many of Tomlinson's big runs have been coming behind the left side lately, doesn't it?
Hope this doesn't turn out to be a Steve Hutchinson type of deal with this guy.

Admittedly I haven't seen either Diehlman or Steinbach play but understand both of them will be FAs in 07. While Charges trying resign/extend Diehlman's contract, it's possibly Cincinnati won't have enough cap money available to resign Steinbach.
Kris Diehlman, OG for San Diego Charges, 6-4, 310#, born 2/13/81, has been in the NFL for 4 years. John Steinbach, 6-6, #290, born 4/4/80 also has been in the NFL for 4 years. Don't know much about either except the young & ranked as good OGs which we desperately need. If they are good and fit the Cowboys OL scheme which appears be more athletic instead of the maulers we've had in our past, then I'd like to see us target one of them to replace Riveria. Of course this all dependent on whether they as good as advertised and team players w/o significant /lockerroom/off-field negatives.
