San Diego Chargers bring in Browns WR Brian Hartline for a visit

New, comments

With Stevie Johnson out for at least a few weeks, the Chargers bring in some veterans to kick the tires on.

As we all have heard by now, WR Stevie Johnson has a torn meniscus and will be undergoing "a procedure." Ballcoach McCoy said yesterday that there will be a better estimate on his return after this procedure is done.

But the Chargers are not sitting idly by for those results.

Hartline is definitely more of a complementary receiver but is 3 years younger than Jones. Hartline will be there to move the sticks, but his touchdown production suggests he is not going to bring much to the red-zone offense.

The fact that they are working out two veterans this soon tells me that Stevie is not coming back anytime soon, which is a shame. However, with how much young WR talent is currently on the roster unless they think they can get Jones or Hartline for cheap, I think they should give the young kids a chance.
