Chiefs Sign Former Chargers LB Brandon Siler

Three days into training camp and the Kansas City Chiefs still have a plenty of room on their roster.  They took one step closer to fixing that on Sunday with the reported signing of former San Diego Chargers LB Brandon Siler.

He had his best year in 2009 with 67 tackles, two sacks and one interception while playing in all 16 games.  Siler then took a step back last season, playing in just 12 games and recording 44 tackles, one sack and one interception.

Siler has a chance to come in and beat out Jovan Belcher for the inside linebacker spot next to Derrick Johnson.

Unlike the small school prospect Belcher, Siler was a star for the National Champion Florida Gators.  However, both play with the chip on their shoulder after being disrespected in the NFL draf with Siler falling to the seventh round and Belcher going undrafted.

The 25-year-old Siler brings two more years of experience to the table than the 24-year-old Belcher thanks to just three years at Florida.

At the very least we get one more great camp battle to watch and either way the Chiefs special teams will be that much better thanks to having both Belcher and Siler on the roster.
