Michael Sam’s Agent Says Chargers Are Great Fit After Handling Te’o


According to Michael Sam’s agent, Joe Barkett, the San Diego Chargers would be a great fit for him. The reason why? They were able to navigate the Manti Te’o situation well. Here is what he said to the U-T San Diego:

“I think the Chargers would be a great fit for [Sam], especially considering the way that they handled the Manti Te’o issue,” Barkett said Monday in a phone interview with the U-T. “It seemed to blow over very easily once the first game had happened. I think that’d be a great spot for [Sam] to land. And he’d be close to us.”

I guess the situation with Te’o did go away quickly but I thought that had more to do with him being injured than the Chargers. I don’t know that Sam’s agents should be openly suggesting teams for him to go to though.
