We have re-signed G @ohrnberger to a one year deal. #chargers— San Diego Chargers (@chargers) April 9, 2014
Rich Ohrnberger will be back with the San Diego Chargers in 2015! Ohrberger filled in at guard and center at various times last season. His most notable performance was in the playoff game against the Bengals in January, when he replaced the concussed Nick Hardwick.
Details of the contract have yet to be released, but knowing what we know about the Bolts cap situation, we can assume that the deal is probably close to the veteran minimum. Ohrnberger has been in the league since 2009, starting in a total of 5 regular season games over his career.
While this is not a splashy signing, it does provide some solid depth for the line, with Rich being able to play two positions. Based on his reputation as a hard worker and a little bit of a class clown in the locker room, this should be viewed as a positive move for Telesco and McCoy as they continue to place their stamp on the team.
