Jon Runyan may be soon joining the San Diego Chargers for their playoff run.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the former longtime Philadelphia standout is on his way to visit the Chargers and he could sign with the team. Starter Jeromey Clary has an ankle injury that could sideline him the rest of the season.

Runyan appears to be a great fit for San Diego. The veteran likely wouldn’t take much time to get ready to play. Runyan visited with several teams this year, but he hasn’t found the right spot.

He would give the Chargers’ offensive line good stability. With center Nick Hardwick expected to return soon from an ankle injury that has kept him out since Week 1, the Chargers’ offensive line looks primed for the stretch run.

San Diego is 7-3 and leads the AFC West by one game after beating Denver on Sunday. The Chargers have won five straight games. Runyan has plenty of playoff experience, so the Chargers could do a lot worse than signing him with Clary out.
