The San Diego Chargers announced Saturday that they have re-signed backup tight end Randy McMichael.

McMichael, who turns 33 in June, is San Diego’s No. 2 tight end behind Antonio Gates. Gates has struggled with foot problems over the past two seasons, so McMichael has received plenty of playing time. He’s racked up 50 catches for 492 yards and two touchdowns during that period.

The Chargers also re-signed Kory Sperry earlier in the week. Sperry is San Diego’s No. 3 tight end. H-back type Brad Taylor rounds out the tight end depth chart in San Diego.
