Chargers add Roscoe Parrish

Chargers owner Dean Spanos recently explained that, by not re-signing receiver Vincent Jackson, the team was able to bring in multiple additional free agents.

The Chargers have now added their third receiver since Jackson left.

Per a league source, the Chargers have agreed to terms with former Bills receiver Roscoe Parrish on a one-year deal.

Primarily a return specialist, Parrish had spent all seven of his NFL seasons with the Bills after joining the team via round two of the 2005 draft.  He appeared in only two games last season, missing the remainder with an ankle injury.

  1. Quantity is always better than quality.

    Unless you’re engaged in some sort of competition or something.

    Which….clearly the Chargers are not.

  2. I see A.J. Is continuing to load up on offensive players and ignore defense! Weren’t the Bolts dead last on 3rd down defense last season?

  3. Like it or not, that makes for a pretty interesting WR corps for Chargers. They lose VJ but sign Robert Mecham, Eddie Royal and Roscoe Parrish…plus they still have Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown who played pretty well the 2nd half of last year. Looks good on paper.

  4. I can’t wait until someone from the Raiders secondary[Mike Mitchell or Tyvon Branch}knocks his scrawney head off when he tries to go over the middle.That is if he doesn’t get hurt and placed on IR when he sneezes before the season starts.

    Must have realized already that Eddie Royal can’t get separation off the LOS.”

  6. I like when the Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down for my post is equal to the Chargers record in a best-case scenario.

    And the post under mine is their record after 4 games.

    (8-8 and 1-3, FTR)

  7. If healthy he’s a great signing! He brings diversity to an offensive approach…….speed, slot, underneath, go patterns, end around running plays, wildcat backfield options AND terrific return game. However he must stay healthy. As an avid Bills fan, I watched him in training camp, pre season and regular season action. Tremendously talented athlete….. a possible game changer IF he stays healthy. For his career sake I hope he does find the magic potion (except vs Bills). Big IF though. Good luck Roscoe.

  8. Let’s see…Rivers has a terrible year with Vincent Jackson in the lineup the entire year last year….

    He has an awesome year the year before with Jackson only suiting up 3 games, and having Patrick Crayton as his #1 WR and a bunch of scrubs and UDFA rookies for the majority of the season.

    The passing game will be fine, and much more effective with this corps of Meachem, Floyd, Gates, Royal, Brown, Parrish, and McMichael.

    Some of you act like they lost Calvin Johnson, or Fitzgerald or something. Jackson is closer to a Brandon Marshall or Santonio Holmes class of WR.

  9. Roscoe has god given talent and speed. He can be a deep threat or a great crossing route reciever leaving the d in the dust. I wanted Buffalo to sign him back. Oh well guess it is a WR with the 10th overall pick.

  10. Remember ALL those years the Chargers were loaded with talent and super bowl favorites?

    That “dynasty” window is now slamming shut.

    Still won’t stop EVERY commentator from saying: (after a San Diego 2-4 start)

    “These Charges always get off to a slow start but then watch out!”

  11. We need help on special team because we had nothing happening on kick off & punt return. We have 2nd year Vincent Brown who played his ass off last year for a rookie too.

    The Chargers will address the defensive line in the draft.

  12. Good, I wish you the best Roscoe. Jauron was a fool to waste your prime years, benching you in favor of Fred Jackson on PR’s. That offense could have been much better with Roscoe getting playing time. Chan has come in and completly changed this team, a year ago Roscoe was the teams 3rd best receiving option before injury, now he’s gone on to another team.

    Not much to love as a Raider fan, As a Charger fan LMAO at the Raiders

  14. love the raiders fans talking smack….. this is perfect for san diego because he can be dynamic (if healthy- big if). if you want to know where he is on the field, just look for Michael Huff looking confused- oh wait.. that could be any receiver….

    actually everybody will be looking at lazy mexican raiders fans fighting with one another in the stands…”committment to excellence”

  15. I always liked Roscoe, nut he’s just too small to go over the middle in the NFL. He’s listed at about 180 or so, but more likely he’s about 150. He broke his wrist 2 yrs ago and went on the IR, and last yr in game 2 broke his ankle and went on the IR. He’s approaching 30 yrs old too. He also had a fumbling problem that got him benched under Jauron. It looks like he’s starting to turn to glass. I wish him well, but if there was anything left , the Bills would have signed him.

    Yeah a raider fan talking sh@t… raiders have gotten worse during this off season and their 1st and second round picks belong to cinncinati due to that great trade for c palmer..how did that work out for ya last season.. michael bush played just as well as mcfadden the injury machine.. have fun in the cellar this year raider nation!!! alot of us dont like aj,but he has a better track record than anything the raiders have had since he came on as chargers gm……nuff said!!! worry about your own team.!!!

  17. Replacing a number 1 receiver with 3 number 3 receivers always works doesn’t it?

    That is the hardest I’ve ever laughed at a comment on here. Thank you for that.

    Good thing there’s still Gates, who’s been as good as almost any “number 1 receiver” for the past 8 years, and Malcolm Floyd, who is a perfect number two WR. So yeah, having three or four solid vets battling each other for playing time usually works out.

    Bolts will easily put up 30 ppg next season with all the weapons they have. With just a small improvement on defense, this team will be back in the playoffs. Sorry Faider fans, but you’re looking at another season in the gutter.

  20. Good return man… If he stays healthy they have an awesome slot guy. V Jacks awesome but we have seen Rivers make average receivers look good.. And Floyd is underrated ..Antonio Gates when healthy is dangerous

  21. Like it or not, that makes for a pretty interesting WR corps for Chargers. They lose VJ but sign Robert Mecham, Eddie Royal and Roscoe Parrish…plus they still have Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown who played pretty well the 2nd half of last year. “LOOKS GOOD ON PAPER”.

    you are right my friend. i believe the chargers are the reigning “paper champs” for the past 7 years

  22. Speed, speed, speed + rivers?? Perfect. Welcome to beautiful Daygo rosco! I think we will be going all Defense and a little Oline in the draft. Ive never said this. But good job AJ.. :). Were gonna be one of the fastest teams out there now with big meach, floyd and royal!? Ha… not to mention GATES. MCClain and mathews? Zooooom with a little zest. GO BOLTS! U MAD BRO? LOL
