The San Diego Chargers claimed Marcus Mason from the Redskins off waivers Monday, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The team is desperate to add bodies to the backfield, whether they ultimately keep Darren Sproles or not.
This is a start. Mason has 32 carries for the Redskins last season and could ultimately compete for the team’s No. 3 or No. 4 running back role.
If Mason winds up any higher on the depth chart, Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith will have had a very bad offseason.
