Burnett finally lands in San Diego

Linebacker Kevin Burnett had little chance of coming back to the Cowboys after the team signed Keith Brooking in free agency.

Now it's official with Burnett signing a free agent deal of his own with the San Diego Chargers.
Burnett, a nickel linebacker and special teams player in Dallas the past four years, will compete for a starting job at inside linebacker with the Chargers.
The move also puts him close to the Los Angeles area home where he grew up.
 Burnett thought he was going to sign with the Chargers last week but negotiations stalled and he visited Houston Texans. He and agent Ricky Left never stopped talking to the Chargers, his preferred choice, and they finally got a deal done on Tuesday.
