The San Diego Chargers signed their corner, they re-signed Richard Marshall to a contract. He is veteran depth for the roster and the team will be looking for their stud corner in the draft. This draft is full of cornerback help and the Chargers will not be sneaking up on anyone when they select the top cornerback on the board in the first round. They may want to do it twice in the first 3 rounds.
With Richard Marshall back on the roster and with the recent signing of Brandon Ghee, Michael Gehlken says the team will be looking to add a corner through the draft and will not be looking at the other corners in free agency. It was not the most ideal situation going into free agency, but there are a lot of talented corners in the draft and the team will need to add a few of them.
Shareece Wright will be starting at one side and Richard Marshall will compete for the starting job on the other side. Brandon Ghee will be in the mix. Marcus Gilchrist will compete for the nickel job. Steve Williams will be back from injury and showed flashes in the preseason. Crezdon Butler and Marcus Cromartie will also compete for a job,
Steve Williams might become a solid player and Wright did much better at the end of the year. Marshall is decent depth, but a starter is needed. The plan will be fine if the team gets a couple of good corners in the draft.
