Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsThe San Diego Chargers are still interested in adding more help on the defensive line and have had their eyes on former Denver Broncos DE Justin Bannan. He has been on the Chargers radar for a little bit now and he is currently in Detroit taking a physical.

Bannan specializes in stopping the run and is an 11-year veteran. There is not a lot of experience for the Chargers at the position. We have our starters and next in the depth chart are a bunch of undrafted free agents. We do have former Green Bay Packers DE Jarius Wynn as a possible veteran competing for a roster spot.

We will keep an eye on the progress of Bannan in Detroit. The signing wouldn’t blow anyone away, but it is depth that can compete for a roster spot.
