The San Diego Chargers aren't making the same mistake as they did last year going into the season without veteran, battle-tested Special Teams specialists. It was announced this afternoon that the front office has agreed to a deal that would return standout gunner and backup wide receiver, Kelley Washington, for the 2011-2012 NFL season. Washington was a key member of last year's Special Teams squad that was rebuilt on the fly mid-season and his presence is a reassuring one to Chargers fans who don't want to witness a repeat of the early season failure's of the 2010-2011 campaign.
Kelley Washington agrees to 1-year deal. He & Q. Teal will be spec. tms vets leading young guys as they try to build from the ashes of '10.
