Jacob Hester Signs One-Year Deal With Chargers

Jacob Hester re-ups with the Bolts and will be wearing the blue and gold next season. He is our special teams ace and captain. He will be used in a backup role this season and could be used to block for LeRon McClain.

Hester was given an ultimatum to sign his contract before Monday. He visited out to Seattle to see his worth and decided that San Diego is the place that he wants to be.

Now, will we sign another veteran runningback?

    Good to hear!

    So our team that was so sorely lacking depth last year is adding great depth to our team. A leader on special teams and a player that can fill in if McLain needs a break or goes down to injury. AJ’s mojo  seems to be back. Hopefully, that trend will continue at the draft.

       @A_Eme_O_Ere mojo is working… we have depth again!!! LETS GO DEFENSE!!

       @619chargers4life that one was easy…. now if i could figure out this draft pick… i got 12 days to try and figure it out

      • RMainwaring

         @epadaon  Haha, don’t worry, in 12 days it will be figured out for you and it will probably be something none of us expected.

    Another solid move.  Would like one more acquisition pre-draft.  Please re-sign Tommie Harris. Please.
    I can’t imagine what he is going through.  I want him to have an opportunity to come back and play for us.

       @BoogaP yea… he must be going through all kinds of crazy right now, but the dude can ball! i would love to see him back in the blue and gold!!! he can rush the passer like the best of them!

  • RMainwaring

    It’s about time. He’s not built like a typical fullback but the guy can block. Good job.
