The San Diego Chargers have reportedly found a camp arm.
He is being signed because backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst will be out a couple of weeks with an injury. So, O’Connell might stick around for a preseason game or two. The team signed Kyle Boller late last week. He retired after one day with the team.
In other AFC West news:
The Chiefs signed former Baltimore linebacker/tight end Edgar Jones. He is expected to be a linebacker for the Chiefs. He replaces safety Kyle McCarthy on the roster. McCarthy suffered a season-ending knee injury Friday, the first day of practice for the Chiefs. He had a chance to make the roster.
With Quinton Carter dealing with a hamstring injury, the Broncos signed safety Anthony Perkins to help with camp safety depth.
