There are nine living former San Diego Chargers in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  In today’s blog we will discuss their signing habits.

Lance Alworth“Bambi” was not only one of the greatest wide receivers in the history of the game but he is a fantastic signer off the gridiron as well.  He loves being remembered by his fans and always tries to take time for them.

Fred DeanBig Fred is the newest Charger to be enshrined and is also one of the best signer.  A fantastic guy with a huge personality, Mr. Dean will rarely turn down an autograph request.

Dan FoutsThis quarterbacking legend, like Lance Alworth is a Hall of Famer on and off the field.  I don’t  believe I have ever seen him turn down a fan.  He is a nice man and always signs.

Charlie JoinerMr. Joiner just might be the best signer of all of the living members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  He never turns down a request, will sign multiple items and, is the definition of  class.

David “Deacon” JonesHe was only a Charger for two years at the tail end of his career and didn’t have a lot left in the tank.  Deacon Jones is a fantastic ambassador for the NFL and a great signer as well.  He also loves to talk football and interact with fans.

Larry LittleLike Deacon Jones, only a Charger for two years but, in his case, more at the beginning of his career.  Mr. Little is a great signer like those Charger greats who came before him.  Similarly to Charlie Joiner, a great human being who is fantastic with his fans.

John Mackey – He is probably the greatest Tight End every to play the game.  Mr. Mackey was only a Charger for one year in 1972.  By then, his career was basically over.  He is now beset with various medical issues and isn’t the same person in many ways he once was, but is still fantastic.  A sweet, sweet man.

Ron Mix – Hard to believe that he was only called for holding once in his storied career (he says it was a bad call).  This great Chargers tackle is a super nice person who remembers his fans and is a gracious and willing signer.

Kellen WinslowHe is the only Chargers legend who isn’t a great guy.  I, like many others, have found him to be rude, arrogant and very difficult.  I have seen him turn down autograph requests from children while cursing at them.  Mr. Winslow should take a page from the other Charger Hall of Famers and give a little back to the fans who helped him to get where he is.
