Colts Ruined Chargers' Attempt To Sign Mr. Irrelevant As UDFA
Mr. Irrelevant of the 2012 NFL Draft quarterback Chandler Harnish was apparently set to sign with the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent according to Simon Samano of NFL.com. “Late in the seventh round I'm very depressed. ... I was getting calls from like the Kansas City Chiefs, the Tennessee Titans, St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders, just a bunch of teams were (calling) -- and I’m talking to my agent every three minutes,” Harnish explains. “It looked like we were about ready to set up a free agency deal. I was ready to go to San Diego. ... “They wanted the decision 10 minutes after they could put the deal on the table, and this was still at pick 240,” Harnish says. “So there were still 13 picks to go. And they put the deal on the table that they wanted me to be a free agent and I had to say ‘yes’ to it. ... We tell San Diego we want that deal. Well, my agent tells the Colts, ‘Hey, he’s going to San Diego if you guys don’t draft him with your last pick.’ So, because of that, the Colts were like, ‘We want him. We want to take him before he goes to free agency, and then he goes to San Diego.’” But it appears that by Harnish's explanation, the Chargers were negotiating with him before the draft ended which should not be happening.
