Chargers sign Reggie Wells, he might last longer this time

Reggie Wells AP

The Chargers don’t need a nametag for the newest offensive lineman. But unlike his previous stays, he might actually hang around a bit this time.

The Chargers signed the veteran offensive lineman Wednesday, the third blocker they’ve signed in the last two days. According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, they placed outside linebacker Antwan Barnes on injured reserve to clear the spot.

With left tackle Michael Harris (high ankle sprain), left guard Tyronne Green (hamstring) and right tackle Jeromey Clary (knee) all expected to miss Sunday’s game, ad backup center Dave Molk (thumb) out for the season, the Chargers needed reinforcements.

They signed center-guard Colin Baxter and guard-tackle Stephen Schilling Tuesday.

The 32-year-old Wells, hasn’t played a snap since 2010, but he’s been in demand. He was on and off the Chargers roster earlier this year, and spent time with the Bills as well.

As banged up as the Chargers are now, he might actually get into a game, and spend more than a few days.

    Yeah stuff like this happens when AJ. Smith COMPLETELY ignores the offensive line for 6 years.

    You have a 92 million dollar QB and you dont think to draft an offensive lineman EVER until after they all retire and/or left due to injury.

    Going into this draft he knew of our OLine woes and STILL refused to draft a lineman.

    He has 5 first round draft picks BUSTS on skill players and/or Major reach no name picks… look at where that leaves us.

    AJ and Norv need to go… AJ even more so than Norv… yeah I said it.

    “No need to draft Offensive Linemen when they can be found at your local supermarket & rental car agency… Trust me, I’m a professional.”

    You might as well have signed David Wells.

    This is what happens when you draft Larry English over Michael Oher, even though you are starting Jeromey Clary.
