The Chargers officially announced the re-signing of offensive lineman Ryan Groy to the team. Groy was signed by the Bolts last season in October following the game against the Denver Broncos where Mike Pouncey sustained a season-ending neck injury. With a rapport already built between him and head coach Anthony Lynn during their time together in Buffalo, Groy was brought in to provide depth along the interior of the offensive after starting 17 games and appearing in 55 games with the Bills and Chicago Bears.

Groy initially signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent back in 2014. The 6’5, 320-pound Groy played collegiately at Wisconsin where he won a Big Ten Championship in both 2011 and 2012.

I’m not sure if the signing of Groy is a foreshadowing from some bad news on the horizon, but right now he provides veteran depth at a position that has become very fickle for the Chargers in recent years.
