LB Kevin Burnett
Burnett should have an easy transition into San Diego's defensive system. He spent the last two years playing for former Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
The Chargers and Cowboys run similar variations of the 3-4 defense.
"It's very, very similar," Burnett said. "It's a lot of the same calls. Obviously people do things different from team to team, but it should be a pretty easy transition."
Burnett's biggest impact may be on special teams. He finished second on the Cowboys with 19 special-teams tackles last season and should be a strong addition to a unit that includes Kassim Osgood and Brandon Siler.
Burnett will also fight for the starting inside linebacker slot next to Stephen Cooper. Matt Wilhelm and Tim Dobbins shared that role last season, with Wilhelm starting seven games and Dobbins starting eight.
Burnett started two games for Dallas while playing in all 16 last season. He finished with 38 tackles, two sacks and three pass breakups.
For his career, Burnett has 146 tackles, four sacks and an interception.
