Adding depth to the roster, the Chargers and defensive lineman Mitch Unrein agreed to terms on a 2-year, $1.9 million deal. In four years with division rival Denver, Unrein played in 54 games (eight in 2014), starting in three of those. He recorded 49 tackles and no sacks as a defensive tackle.
Unrein is projected to play both at the nose and end positions on the Bolts’ defensive front, adding to this writer’s concerns about how the importance of the nose position seems to be downplayed by Mike McCoy and Tom Telesco. He could also see time at fullback, having scored a touchdown in 2012 when McCoy was Denver’s offensive coordinator.
Unrein joins teammate Orlando Franklin as defectors from the Broncos to the Chargers. He joins wide receiver Stevie Johnson as the newest additions to the squad that were made this week.
