Richard Marshall chooses the Chargers

marshall AP

As the Chargers try to close the broad gap between themselves and the Broncos in the AFC West, they’d added a defensive back who only recently became available.

Per a league source, former Dolphins cornerback Richard Marshall has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Chargers.

The Jaguars also were in the mix to sign Marshall, who collected $6.1 million for a total of four games with the Dolphins.

Marshall also has played for the Cardinals and Panthers.  In San Diego, he joins a depth chart currently topped by Shareece Wright and Derek Cox, with Johnny Patrick and Steve Williams as the primary backups.

    “…..because the wide-outs are so bad, he is sure to shine during practice.”

    Not sexy, but important for our thin secondary.

    When your choices are Jacksonville or San Diego, you’re probably not going to be busy in January.

  15. johninthewest says: Aug 23, 2013 3:47 PM

    There’s a reason why he played for 2 teams already…

  16. boltstayinsd says: Aug 23, 2013 3:50 PM

    Williams is outsky bro

  17. granadafan says: Aug 23, 2013 4:00 PM

    Chooses or settles for because no one else gave him a decent offer?

  18. richmondbolt says: Aug 23, 2013 4:00 PM

    I don’t think that gap is as broad as you think. Take Manning away, which is happening soon, and this is an average team.

  19. dalcow4 says: Aug 23, 2013 4:00 PM

    Uh… Steve Williams being out for the year is THE REASON they signed Marshall.

  20. glb020971 says: Aug 23, 2013 4:07 PM

    It really don’t matter who the Charges get. Week one is a lost. Johnson, Hopkins, will eat his lunch.

  21. chargersdiehard says: Aug 23, 2013 4:20 PM

    Payton’s favorite new target.

    Richard Marshall chooses 6-10

  23. justintuckrule says: Aug 23, 2013 4:21 PM

    who are these people?

  24. vader3234 says: Aug 23, 2013 4:22 PM

    @humbolt the charger fan, half a century in the NFL for the chargers, not one Superbowl, never has a team achieved so little with so much.

  25. papoose059 says: Aug 23, 2013 4:43 PM

    For the Dolphins, I liked what Marshall brought to the table. Unfortunately, you just couldn’t count on him to be available… If he can bring the production he gave to Arizona the final year with them he will be a steal.

  26. nflguythetruthdotnfl says: Aug 23, 2013 5:38 PM

    Hey Doall24,

    He was choosing btw Fla and Cal on the same contract. He chose family over $$ (I know you don’t know this because you’re making life minimum but fl is a tax free state)

  27. vaughnjoe says: Aug 23, 2013 6:35 PM

    HELL YEAH! wait… ok hey an extra DB never hurts

  28. rayguyreturns says: Aug 23, 2013 6:39 PM

    Yeah, Super Bowl Express.
    And they say us Oakland fans are crazy.

  29. slick50ks says: Aug 23, 2013 7:18 PM

    That’s a raideresque secondary you’ve got going there chuggers.

    Says a fan of a clown franchise like the Jets who has been irrelevant since 1969. Bwahahahahahahahahah.

    Instant upgrade, whoever he is.

  32. tjacks7 says: Aug 23, 2013 11:40 PM

    Literally never heard of any of those guys.

  33. lightningboltz2013 says: Aug 24, 2013 1:44 PM

    I wouldn’t be surprised Marshall takes the job from Wright.He’s gonna start. He will be good,so he can take it to the bank. He’s been pretty healthy except for last year. I don’t want him to turn to be a “Big Lazy”!!!
