Chargers sign Ricardo Mathews

Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco reached into his past to find some help on the defensive line.

Telesco was in the Colts organization when they drafted defensive tackle Ricardo Mathews in the seventh round of the 2010 draft and he saw enough to like about Mathews to sign him to a contract with the Chargers for the 2014 season.

Mathews had 51 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 52 games, six of them starts, for the Colts. He signed with Houston in April and spent the summer with the Texans before being released as they dropped to 53 players. Mathews should settle into a reserve role behind Sean Lissemore in San Diego.

San Diego waived running back Marion Grice to open up a roster spot for Mathews.

    Grice is nice… But who’s Mathews?

    The Chargers lead the league in guys named Mathews who spell their name with one ‘t.’

    I knew they were going to reinforce the D line and I figured one of the FIVE running backs would get axed…. I think I’d prefer to have Oliver than Grice anyhow.
