San Diego Chargers sign CB Richard Marshall to one-year contract

Joel Auerbach

The San Diego Chargers have added depth to their defensive backfield by signing free agent cornerback Richard Marshall to a one-year contract.

Hey, something actually happened with that! Richard Marshall will now join Johnny Patrick and a bunch of other guys to fight for the nickel cornerback spot in the defense, which will be a valuable position because of the past frailty of Shareece Wright and Derek Cox.

I like this move. It's not going to change the team drastically in any way, but it's solid depth added to a position that was lacking in solid depth. Also, after playing under Secondary Coach Ron Milus in Carolina, Marshall should be very familiar with what Milus is trying to do in San Diego with the Chargers.

In seven seasons in the NFL, Marshall has playing in 100 games, starting in 59 of them. He's collected 18 interceptions, 7 sacks, forced 3 fumbles and scored 2 touchdowns. He's also racked up 423 tackles. Those are exactly the type of numbers you want in a guy that's playing nickel corner.
