Richard Marshall Agrees To Terms With Chargers
By Adam Hurst
Marshall will join his third team in as many seasons after being cut earlier this week by the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins added depth to the position following a flurry of offseason acquisitions, ultimately making the seven-year veteran and his $4.55 million salary expendable.
However, Marshall is expected to significantly help San Diego's thin secondary — a team that's looking to compete against the pass-heavy and top division rival Denver Broncos. Last week it was reported that the Chargers would be without rookie CB Steve Williams who is out for the year with a torn pectoral muscle.
The Dolphins attempted to trade Marshall according to Pro Football Talk and had received interest by the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he ultimately decided on San Diego. Earlier this week, Marshall thanked the Dolphins and its fans on twitter and today tweeted out his excitement to be back on the west coast, saying, “Time to lace the cleats up again #chargers glad to be back in California.”
