The San Diego Chargers are looking to bring in a veteran wide receiver onto the roster after the injury to Stevie Johnson.

This doesn’t mean that Tyrell WIlliams will be warming the bench, it just means that there will be some competition for that spot. Competition is always good! Williams will have to win the spot.

At this moment, the San Diego Chargers are working out former Green Bay Packers WR James Jones and former Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns WR Brian Hartline.

#Chargers are hosting veteran WR James Jones on a visit today, source said. Given WR Stevie Johnson's knee injury, Jones is a strong option.

In addition to James Jones' visit to San Diego, I'm told they are also working out former #Browns WR Brian Hartline today.

If I had a preference of the two, I would rather add James Jones to the team. He finds a way to get open in the red zone and would be another option in that area of the field.

Johnson will be out for some time, and we are not sure what he will look like when he returns. It will take him some time to get back up to speed, but while we wait, we will have a few players looking to fill his role.

In the end, I will be rooting for Williams to take the spot. I would love for him to show off his talent and win that spot for a long time. I am sure that is what Tom Telesco is hoping for as well. He just has to win it.

Let the competition begin.
