Chad Rinehart re-signs with Chargers

The Chargers have re-signed linebacker Donald Butler and core special teamer Darrell Stuckey recently and they’ll be keeping another one of their players from hitting the open market.

San Diego announced Monday that guard Chad Rinehart has re-signed with the team on a two-year deal. Rinehart, like all free agents, has had the opportunity to hear from teams over the weekend and the decision to stay in San Diego suggests he didn’t hear anything to make him think that the grass would be greener somewhere else.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported the news before the announcement. Vacchiano covers the Giants, who were one of the teams believed to be interested in potentially adding Rinehart to their offensive line. Jon Asamoah, Geoff Schwartz and Zane Beadles are some of the other options that the Giants could explore if they still plan to try to upgrade at guard.

Rinehart started 10 games when not ailing last season, his first in San Diego after stops in Washington and Buffalo. His return at left guard means the Chargers have their entire starting offensive line from last season under contract for 2014.

    Good… now I can draft him in my “Fantasy Offensive Linemen Draft”. He’s my sleeper.

    Good news for the chargers. Still think they need to cut Clary though.

    Rinehart won’t get us a Lomardi on his own, but he’s an important part of the team that Telesco is building that is capable of winning it all.

    Awesome. He was fantastic in Wedding Crashers.

    I am certain this news is causing Chargers fans everywhere to exhale in relief.

    Actually, when healthy, he did a good job. Outstanding? Pro-Bowl material? No. But competent. Other teams could and will do a lot worse.

    He is solid and if anything gives them an option so they can draft an OL player and develop.

    That is a pretty good start, now lets see how the Chargers do between now and the beginning of the reg,season (with their 53 men roster). B
