As the initial rush of the first week of free agency wears off, the Chargers continue to stay active. Tom Telesco brought in two players for visits yesterday, according to reports.

The first to be report was Buffalo Bills swing Tackle Chris Hairston. Hairston missed the 2013 season with a lingering ankle injury but saw reserve action at RT for the Bills last season. He also spend his rookie year under current Chargers offensive linemen coach Joe D'Alessandris. Hairston is still young, only 25, and has great size at 6'6 330lbs.

The second player brought out to San Diego for a visit is LB Joe Mays. Mays has made the rounds in the AFC West, having spent time with both the Broncos and the Chiefs. Mays is a thumping LB, as I'm sure Ryan Mathews could tell you.

With Andrew Gachkar signing with the Dallas Cowboys, and Reggie Walker signing with the Broncos, the Chargers are in need of LB depth, and Mays would be a great addition, especially in short yardage and goal line packages.  Hairston would also add some versatile depth, having spent time at both RT and RG for the Bills and time at LT in college.
