Kynan Forney Inks Two-Year Deal
Forney is an eight-year veteran who spent his first seven seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. He started 89 of 95 games during his stint in Atlanta, but was released during the Falcons' final round of cuts last season.
Forney quickly signed with the Chargers and was happy for the change of scenery.
"This situation is a whole lot better than the one I came from," said Forney in an interview with SDBoltReport.com midway through last season. "I'd be more than happy to stay here."
The reason Forney prefers San Diego to Atlanta is not just the weather, but the manner in which the team treats its veterans.
"[The Chargers] take care of their players during the week. They're not trying to kill you to where you're just barely surviving and scratching on Sunday. They bring you into the game fresh. Coach [Norv] Turner treats us like men," he said.
Forney, who was a first-alternate to the Pro Bowl in 2005, is a self-made player. After coming into the league as a seventh-round pick out of Hawaii in 2001, he quickly worked his way into the starting lineup and helped the Falcons lead the NFL in rushing every year from 2004-2006.
His two-year deal is reportedly worth $4.8 million with a first-year payout of $2 million, according a story on ProFootballTalk.com.
