The San Diego Chargers have re-signed Rich Ohrnberger today and he will give the team more depth up front on their offensive line. Ohrnberger was with the team last season and provided some valuable snaps in the post season against the Cincinnati Bengals. He had to come in for an injured Nick Hardwick and the offense didn’t skip a beat with him snapping the ball to Philip Rivers.
Ohrnberger is a good depth player for the Chargers to have. His versatility will be big. He can play the center position and move over to guard. There were teams that considered him as a starter this offseason, but he has decided to come back to the Chargers.
The Chargers have done a great job of bringing back their own players. They kept free agents like Donald Butler, Chad Rinehart, Darrell Stuckey and Ohrnberger. When other players go into their free agent year, we know that Tom Telesco will do his best to keep the good ones around.
Depth up front will be less of a priority going into the draft (but it will still be a priority).
