Report: Chargers to sign Chris Carr

DeVier Posey, Chris Carr AP

The Chargers were able to handle the Chiefs on Sunday despite having just three healthy cornerbacks, but it seems they’d like to be a little deeper at the spot going forward.

The agent for free agent cornerback Chris Carr told Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune that his client will be signing with the Chargers this week. Carr himself sent out a tweet on Monday saying that he was San Diego-bound, although there’s been no word from the team as yet. Carr visited with the team last month and visited with the Jets last week after they lost Darrelle Revis.

Shareece Wright has missed the last three games with a sprained ankle, leaving the Chargers thin at the position. Carr was cut by the Vikings at the end of training camp and cut by the Ravens earlier in the offseason one year after signing a multiyear deal after a strong 2010 season. Carr was hurt for most of the 2011 season, though, and the Ravens decided to move forward without him.

Carr’s signing hasn’t gone down yet so we don’t know the corresponding move to clear space for him on the roster. Norv Turner had a downcast report on kicker Nate Kaeding’s status on Monday, saying that he didn’t anticipate Kaeding being well enough to kick for a while, so that could prove to be where the Chargers make space for Carr.

    Norv Turner’s face was once used as the face of the moon.

    Ha! “Face of the moon…” An immature mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    CB’s—The Chargers must face this problem. I dont know if anyone has noticed, but Jammer has lost so many steps he has to hold on every play because WRs are smoking him. Cason is just not a good CB. Wrigth could be good if you get him standing up, but as of now….terrible weakness in the secondary.

    Saints are going to demolish the Chargers and get their season started!

    When Norv is fired this team will become immediate superbowl contenders! Sorry chargers fans that you have to put up with him.

    While Jammer is getting older…brassknuckles47 you need to rewatch week 1. That was quite possibly Jammers single best performance.
    While you’re right he is getting older, he’s far and away the best CB on our team.

    We could all judge your looks as well if you weren’t so insignificant.

    The secondary is definitely the weakest part of this chargers team, Cason isn’t bad, he’s just more of a finesse corner like cro, or asante Samuel, don’t look for him to.be physical, Jammer is our physical guy and yes it is obvious he’s lost steps and that’s why signing Carr was so significant, cuz even with those two healthy we still need the help!!

    Malicious 80, The Saints Defense is really bad this year.I don’t think they have enough money in the pool to play defense

    Chris Carr was a good player while healthy, but he’s no longer healthy.

    Another great move by the lord of no rings.
