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.
