OT Chris Hairston visiting San Diego Chargers
By Ernie Padaon
Big free agent OT Chris Hairston has a visit with the San Diego Chargrs on Thursday afternoon.
The San Diego Chargers are still doing work in free agency. Fans wanted to see the Chargers make a big splash in free agency with some big time names, but the Chargers are more interested in finding depth around the roster and will hope to add star talent through the draft. The team has added a defensive lineman and a player in the secondary the last couple of days. On Thursday, the Chargers have brought in a big right tackle in for a visit that they could sign onto the roster.

The Chargers have brought in big lineman Chris Hairston in for a visit. He has worked with the Chargers o-line coach Joe D in the past when they both were in Buffalo. He would be a big man that could play both tackle spots and bring depth to the offensive line.
The team likely could use another starter on the offensive line at some point. Hairston could compete for a starting role and has started 15 games in the past, but I doubt that to be the position that he. His main focus for the Chargers would be to take that swing tackle role.
If the Chargers are looking to add another lineman to the starting lineup, they can look toward the draft. There are a couple of solid lineman still available in free agency that the team could make a run on. With all the big names signing onto rosters, Tom Telesco can feed on some of the players that are avialable now and sign them up to solid deals to build depth for the roster. There still are some solid players that can help this team up front. We will see if Telesco makes a run at some of the talent that is there.
