Chargers sign veteran defensive lineman

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

The Chargers brought in veteran Ian Scott on Tuesday.

To make room for Scott, the Chargers cut rookie cornerback DeJuan Tribble. The Boston College product was a sixth-round pick. If he isn't claimed, Tribble is a likely candidate for the San Diego practice squad.

Scott is reunited with San Diego inside linebackers coach Ron Rivera. He was the Chicago defensive coordinator when Scott had his best years. Scott has also been with Philadelphia and Carolina. In San Diego, he will likely work in the rotation.
