    Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Kevin Burnett, one of top remaining linebackers in free agency, reached a contract agreement with the San Diego Chargers on Tuesday.

    According to a source, Burnett agreed to a two-year, $5.5 million deal that included $4 million in guarantees. Burnett had been talking to several teams: the Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers, Chargers and others.

    On Tuesday, he decided to bolster Norv Turner's linebacking crew. Burnett, 26, was a second-round choice of the Cowboys in 2005.

    Burnett has the versatility to play inside or outside but will probably help the Chargers at inside linebacker.

    Feels good knowing that the Chargers are starting to pull the trigger and make things happen. Cant wait for the draft.

    Remember all those fuckin tight ends running free catching long passes on third down, well that shits just come to an end!!
