Richard Marshall visiting Chargers on Thursday

When the Dolphins parted ways with cornerback Richard Marshall this week, Mike Florio reported that the team wasn’t closing the door on bringing him back at a cheaper salary than the $4.55 million he was scheduled to make this season.

They might not get that chance, however. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Marshall is visiting the Chargers on Thursday and that they are one of multiple teams with interest in Marshall joining their secondary.

The Chargers have a clear need for help at corner after 2013 fifth-round pick Steve Williams was lost for the year to a torn pectoral muscle. That leaves them with just three corners with meaningful NFL experience and those corners — Derek Cox, Shareece Wright and Johnny Patrick — aren’t going to scare too many opposing offenses out of putting the ball in the air this season.

Marshall would definitely get an immediate shot at playing time in San Diego, which should make it an appealing destination beyond the chance to play for a third straight team (Marshall was in Arizona for the 2011 season) in a place where the sun shines more often than not.

    Shareece wright should scare opposing offenses. He has taken out our two best receivers in training camp. Your teams best receiver could be next!

    Our own receivers are the only ones he’s taken out. He sure hasn’t impressed anyone during games.

    @ambitoos ,

    Shareece has looked really solid in both games and in camp, better than cox has even. The only catch on him was Brandon Marshall’s touchdown over his body with shareece locked down on him.
