San Diego Chargers Re-Sign K Nick Novak

Watch out around the Gatorade tank, the San Diego Chargers have re-signed Nick Novak to a 4-year deal, per Joel Corry. Novak came in after Nate Kaeding was injured again and was solid. For the first two signings in the Tommy T. era, the Chargers have shored up the special teams. Novak signed and long snapper Mike Windt are signed.

Now, time to get some people in the secondary and on the offensive line. Things are moving.

We are getting our free agents signed now. There are a few other guys I would like to see us get signed, but we will have to be patient. Patience grasshopper.

    That’s …a little expensive…but a solid move

    Thinking abou it, really good move. Our special teams is set, SP teams can make or break a game

    Are you kidding me?!!! A 4 year deal is ridiculous. Novak is just a stop gap player, I know there’s so many needs that they can’t afford to use a pick on a kicker but Novak has about the same leg strength as Kaeding. Every other team seems to be able to boot kickoffs out of the endzone but Novak isn’t able to in the perfect weather of Qualcomm. a one year deal would have been better then next year they can get a strong leg rookie like the Rams’ Zuerlin

      He actually was able to kick through the goal post on a kickoff against the jets I think lol

      • JoseSD

        Must have been with the wind at his back at the New Meadowlands. His career long is 53 yards btw, I think that rookie Zuerlin matched Janikowski’s career long of 61 this season

    Nice. One of many smart moves to come, I’m sure.
