Highly Coveted CFL Star has Sights Set on Bolts

Posted May 17, 2014

After starring in the CFL, Cordarro Law has sights set on San Diego.

Cordarro Law has been in this position before. 

Two years ago he signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted rookie free agent following a standout career at Southern Mississippi in which he recorded 192 tackles, 54.0 tackles for loss, 28.0 sacks and 14 forced fumbles.  Unfortunately, he was one of the last players released by the Seattle Seahawks after an impressive preseason and training camp. 

The outside linebacker decided to head north to play in the Canadian Football League and suit up for the Calgary Stampeders.  It proved to be a wise decision as Law came into his own in 2013, lighting up the CFL with 44 tackles and 14.0 sacks.

Still, the NFL is where the pass rusher wants to be, which is why he is determined to make the most of his chance with the San Diego Chargers.  That includes making his presence felt during this weekend’s rookie minicamp

“It’s definitely exciting to be out there again,” he said.  “It feels good to be back in the NFL.  I definitely still have a lot of learning to do, but it was exciting to be back out there playing football in the NFL.  The NFL is the ultimate goal.  I learned not to take anything for granted.  This is where I want to be.  I’m hungry.”

It was only two weeks following the Super Bowl that Law was faced with a tough decision. He was coveted by a number of teams after his breakout CFL season and had to choose among a number of NFL suitors.  On February 14 he made his decision, signing a reserve/futures contract with the Chargers. Three months have passed and he is confident he made the right decision.

“This is a good fit for me,” he said.  “This is the perfect system for me because I think I can be effective in the scheme.  It allows me to get after the quarterback and be a pass rusher, which is right up my alley. Then there are guys I can learn from.  Dwight FreeneyJarret Johnson.  I think I made the right choice.”

While Law never expected his career to take him to the CFL, he firmly believes he is a better player because of it.

“I am a better pass rusher from playing there,” he said.  “It helped me with my game more.  I learned more ways how to pass rush.  I still have to learn and have things I can get better at, but being up there helped me out a lot.  There is a lot of good competition up there.”
