The San Diego Chargers added more depth to the wide receiving unit with the signing of WR/KR Roscoe Parrish. Parrish was selected in the second round of the 2005 draft by the Buffalo Bills out of Miami.

He could be used to compete with Richard Goodman on kickoff return duties and he also could be used as the primary punt returner. Eddie Royal has had injury issues in the past and this could be a way to get Royal more involved in the offense and less in special teams. We will have to see how everyone is used in the preseason.

What do you think of the signing?

  • MontyHeldt

    @chargersbuzztap oh wow!!! I am so happy. He will be better than vjax!!! Ummm…does anyone have a plan here AJ?

  • BoogaP

    Love it.  Speed kills.  With Rivers throwing the rock the more speed the better! Our explosiveness in the return game is off the charts!

  • ibesyke

      And reverses

      • KennyRedman

        When Turner was our OC, we had the sweetest double reverse. I thought for sure that we would be seeing it again when he became head coach. Maybe now we have the speed to pull it off again.

    Wow. Another FA signing. A.J. is acting like a GM. He must be ill. I like it though. Looks like he might fill the role that Sproles had.

      @RandyMainwaring Something definitely got in his Cheerios… I like this signing too. Can have Royal focus on receiving more and keep him away from harm.

  • RMainwaring

    Is all of our defense gonna be draft picks? This kinda worries me. Shouldn’t we be picking up more defensive players through FA?
