Great Little Piece by Kevin Acee

Is AJ Smith the best General Manager in all of sports? He seems to find more unknown talent than any other front office guy in any other front office in any other sporting institution.

Antonio Gates, undrafted. Nick Hardwick, 3rd round. Jamal Williams, supplemental draft. Kassim Osgood, undrafted free agent. Shaun Phillips, 4th round.

I could go on. The dude is just a football loving Diddy. He finds diamonds in the rough like Jafar.

Kevin Acee had a very interesting article today about another young, budding, future star Jyles Tucker, an UFA who had 3.5 sacks in 6 games during his rookie season last year.

Will he develop into another stud outside linebacker for the already outstanding Chargers corps? Who knows, maybe the reason Shawne Merriman hasn't gotten a contract extension yet and draft classmate Luis Castillo has is because the Bolts know they have a guy in Tucker who can replace him in 2010 when his contract runs out...
