The Denver Broncos released their defensive tackle today before final cuts. Vickerson was the Broncos starting defensive tackle and would be a nice fit on the Chargers defensive front. The Chargers depth at the position is thin and could use a veteran presence on the roster.

The Chargers have Corey Liuget, Kendall Reyes and Sean Lissemore as the main players up front and the depth behind them doesn’t have much experience. Lawrence Guy has the most experience and he missed a lot of time during training camp because of an injury. Behind the other guys are a few rookies. Vickerson would be the perfect fit onto this roster and he would get to stick around in the division. Just as the Chargers signed Brandon Flowers from the Kansas City Chiefs, the San Diego Chargers could find another player to add onto their starting defense from the division rivals.
The Broncos had questions about Vickerson’s ability to stay healthy and he didn’t have the greatest training camp.
