NFL Rumors: San Diego Chargers want to re-sign Chad Rinehart, Richard Marshall


 

Now that the San Diego Chargers have locked up linebacker Donald Butler, signing him to a three-year deal that could become even longer with an option after those first three years, the Chargers are turning their attention to bringing back two more of their own free agents.

According to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com, the Chargers want to re-sign offensive lineman Chad Rinehart and cornerback Richard Marshall.

Two players that should receive some attention from the Chargers’ brass are offensive lineman Chad Rinehart and cornerback Richard Marshall. Both players proved their value down the backstretch of the 2013 season by producing when thrust into the starting lineup.

And bringing back both players should not break the bank and would help fill positions of need, giving San Diego a chance to find a long-term answer at offensive guard and cornerback in this year’s draft.

Rinehart played in 11 games, starting all 11 at either left or right guard.

Marshall had 71 tackles, six passes defended and a fumble recovery last season.

    Bring both players back great depth and solid starter (Rinehart)

    I want Rinehart back at like a three year deal. Marshall only a one year deal on the cheap. He played well but not well enough for a multi year deal.

    On a draft note this is what I’m thinking/hoping…
    1. NT Louis Nix III Notre Dame
    2. CB Keith McGill Utah
    3. OG Cyril Richardson Baylor
    4. OLB Carl Bradford Arizona State
    5. RB Storm Johnson University Central Florida
    that is all I have so far. Tell me what you think.

      LOUIS NIXIII IS GOING TO BE A BUUSST!!! LOOK AT SOME REAL TAPE 1ST ROUND CB 2ND WR 3RD DT 4TH OLB 5TH RB

        Dude…I think your Caps Lock button is broken.

        • Sean M

          Why isn’t anyone talking about Jordan Zumwalt. He hits and is good against the run. He could be a good 5th rounder that could replace JJ after next year

          • Gunnar Martin

            There’s been plenty talk about him. He’s alright. I think he’s more of an inside linebacker at the next level though. I can’t really remember. What I do remember is that he is VERY passionate when he plays, so his intensity would bring an interesting factor to the team. I like him as a fifth rounder as well.

            Also Gaffney would be a good pick up in the 5th to 6th round range. I think his running style would fit with our offensive scheme

          Am I right?

          • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

            I’d probably swap out WR and DT rounds, but the rest looks good.

            ur right
