The Chargers have agreed to a deal with backup quarterback Kellen Clemens. The 11-year veteran has spent the last 3 seasons with the Bolts. He’s only thrown 10 passes over that stretch.
It’s been somewhat of a quiet off-season for the team so far. The team has also agreed to re-sign safety Jahleel Addae and long snapper Mike Windt, and placed a franchise tag on edge rusher Melvin Ingram.
A few days ago the Chargers also released former 1st round pick D.J. Fluker, along with cornerback Brandon Flowers, and wide receiver Steve Johnson.
Those cuts gave the Chargers $19 million in salary cap space. The Chargers have also had discussions with free-agent running back Danny Woodhead.
The Bolts biggest need is on the offensive line. They will likely look to get help their with their modest free agent budget.
