Chargers sign four picks at once, leaving just two unsigned

Chris Watt AP

The Chargers know how to take care of business.

Since rookie deals are pretty boilerplate these days, they decided to do a whole bunch of them at once.

According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, the Chargers signed four draft picks today — third-round guard Chris Watt, fifth-round nose tackle Ryan Carrethers, sixth-round running back Marion Grice and seventh-round wide receiver Tevin Reese.

That leaves just first-round cornerback Jason Verrett and second-round linebacker Jerry Attaochu unsigned, and there’s no reason they should be a problem.

Frankly, more teams ought to do business this way, if only to give the cap guys who have been grinding numbers in the extra time leading up to the draft a few weeks of comp time.

    If the chokers knew how to take care of business they’d have something in their trophy case besides dust.

    What are the odds of seeing that headline if A.J. Smith was still running the show?

    Yes, its so much better being a Bronco fan when in two years they will be scrapping this entire team and hoping for a four-win season. Good luck.

    Didn’t the Broncos go through the 2013 season without a win against any team with a winning record?
