The San Diego Chargers have reached a deal with CB Richard Marshall. We needed some help in the secondary and the Miami Dolphins gift wrapped that one up for us. 5th round draft pick Steve Williams went down with a pectoral tear and will be out for the season and he was going to compete for some playing time this season.
Marshall will enter into the battle for the nickel corner spot with Johnny Patrick. He is a versatile player that can start at one side, play the nickel or even move over to safety. He will be valuable for the defense.
Good signing for the Chargers. They needed help and Tom Telesco did not waste any time trying to bring someone in to help out. I wonder if he will suit up on Saturday. That would be crazy.
