The Chargers made more news this afternoon with the signing of FB Le’Ron McClain. It seems that AJ Smith is liking this free agency thing this time around. McClain is a 2-time Pro Bowler and will be the new starter at fullback. So much for Frank Summers being the starter. This could mean the end of Jacob Hester in San Diego.

McClain is a true fullback at 6-feet, 260 pounds. He was used as tailback in Baltimore for a little bit, but his main use here will be to lead the way for Ryan Mathews. Another good signing by AJ (I will not get tired of saying this).
