The San Diego Chargers have waived Kevin Reddick today. He was brought in to provide some depth at the linebacker spot and to bring in some help on special teams.

Brown can give Philip Rivers protection in the backfield and will be an option in the passing game. He possibly could move above Shaun Draughn on the depth chart. I guess we will take the veteran that is familiar with the system right back. He can block for Philip Rivers and give him more time to get the ball out to his receivers.
