The Chargers have signed another free agent.  This one is one of their own.

Fullback Jacob Hester has agreed to terms on a one-year deal, the team announced Friday night.

The Chargers say that Hester will back up Le’Ron McClain, who joined the Chargers last month.

Hester, a third-round pick in 2008, has appeared in 62 games during his four seasons with the Chargers.  He was the team’s special-teams captain in 2011.
