The Chargers are likely to add some depth to their defensive line rotation, and could look nearby for an answer.
Of course, Bannan’s Broncos stint (where he worked with new Chargers coach Mike McCoy) might not be as pertinent to his future as the four years he spent in Baltimore. There, he was coached by Chuck Pagano, the brother of Chargers defensive coordinator John Pagano.
Bannan was a versatile lineman for both those teams, and that ability to play multiple positions is something the Chargers need.
The oldest lineman is 26-year-old Jarius Wynn, and four of the 10 linemen on hand are undrafted rookies.
Throwing some experience into the mix would help, and Bannan should be more moderately priced than some of the other veterans out there such as Richard Seymour.
