Former Broncos reserve defensive lineman, Mitch Unrein visited the Chargers today, per source.
As Tom Telesco continues to fly under the radar during free agency, he still is working diligently to find players that can add depth value to the roster.
Unrein, an undrafted free agent in 2010, spent some brief time with the Houston Texans and participated in their training camp that year. A few months later, he was signed by the Denver Broncos and spent 11 games on their practice squad.
In 2011, he spent 14 games as a reserve defensive lineman before playing all 16 regular-season games for the Broncos in 2012.
He was also the only defensive lineman in Broncos history to catch a touchdown pass from Peyton Manning vs. Tampa Bay (12/2/12).
Ultimately, Unrein would be a backup to Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes. With how common injuries occur in the NFL, along with an injury stricken team last year, he’s worth taking a look at.
