The Chargers made a couple of moves on Thursday by signing tight end Kyle Miller and releasing defensive lineman Mitch Unrein, according to the team’s official website.
Miller was recently waived by the team after originally making the 53-man roster. The former Falcon led the Bolts with 11 receptions for 66 yards during the 2015 preseason. Miller saw most of his game action on special teams for the team.
The team was almost forced to sign Miller after current starting tight end Ladarius Green suffered his third concussion in the last nine months.
The Bolts will enter Week 3 with John Phillips, David Johnson and Miller at the tight end position.
The tight end position was already hurting due to the four-game suspension of future Hall of Famer Antonio Gates. Needless to say, he is sorely missed. He i available to return to the field for the Week 5 contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Unrein was signed this offseason during free agency. The former Denver Bronco was seen as depth along the defensive front.
