Chargers sign four picks at once, leaving just two unsigned

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.
