Chargers likely to add Vasher

Free agent cornerback Nathan Vasher has found a new home.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Chargers are close to signing Vasher.

Vasher was released by the Bears this month.

A 2005 Pro Bowler who has been injured and ineffective in the last three years, Vasher gives the Chargers some depth at cornerback after they traded Antonio Cromartie to the Jets.

In San Diego, Vasher will again play for defensive coordinator Ron Rivera and secondary coach Steve Wilks, both of whom coached Vasher in Chicago.
