Former Miami Dolphins CB Richard Marshall is visiting the Chargers today and hopefully we can work out a deal with him:

Marshall would be a great pickup for the team. We need help in the secondary and he has a ton of experience starting in the league. He can play on special teams and can also play some safety.

Marshall was a cap casualty with the Dolphins. There loss could be our gain. Hopefully Tom Telesco will be able to wrap that signing up and get some much needed depth in the secondary.

    They let him go because they thought he wasn’t playing at the level 4 million should be played at. aren’t the guys beating him out in camp rookies? Either way I hope we sign him we need the depth for sure.

      they are young, but i think it was more about the money on his release.

      • arnie

        Agreed. And now we benefit from their over pricing of his value.

  • Rob Base

    I hope the Bolts can ink that dude!

    He’s basically like a more experienced Gilchrist

      I was thinking the same thing… great minds ; )

  • Cgoodness13

    TT is the man!!!!!

  • arnie

    I was wondering when you were going to post this up Ernie? This is great news. With Williams down, this lines up with logic they are looking for FA as last resort and not a first option. The real question becomes, how much cap space is left?

    • Rob Base

      Maybe the cut someone to get him.

      • arnie

        Did they add someone when Williams went down? I know they added Tutu, but that was in response to Royal’s injuries.
        If so, this signing fills a spot that was vacant.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          Not yet

          • arnie

            C’mon Ernie. He just left Florida, he doesn’t want to play anywhere else. He actually can be a starter here. Or at least a versatile player that fills a void and will get plenty of opportunities.

          • arnie

            Besides i dug this little nugget up over at ESPN…

            “Marshall, known as a strong locker-room presence, has ties to the Chargers’ staff. He was in Carolina with coach Mike McCoy and in Arizona with offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt.”

            It’s almost in the bag. ;)

  • Brandon

    His stats are good and we need the help. Lets get it done Tom!

  • Adam

    If only we could straight trade him for Meach.

    The Miami coach does not like the locker room leaders. He got rid of all of them. If the vets are stand outs and the rookies follow him or listen – then they are gone. The coach wants all the young guys drinking his poison koolaid, not Reggie’s, not Ochocinco’s, not Marshall’s or anyone else. The talk also was that the new coach did not like Brandon Marshall.

    Good for us, bad for the Dolphins. Weird coach.

    He agreed to a 1 year deal with the Chargers, from bleacher report.
