Report: Chargers close to adding Vasher

The San Diego Union Tribune is reporting that the Chargers are close to signing cornerback Nathan Vasher. San Diego is banking on Vasher regaining his early-career health and success under the coaches he had in Chicago. Former Bears assistants Ron Rivera and Steve Wilks are on San Diego’s staff.

Vasher, 28, was recently cut by the Bears. He was an explosive ball hawk early in his career, but he has been hampered by injuries in recent seasons. This is a worthwhile endeavor for San Diego.

Vaster will likely not be expensive and he will add depth to the cornerback position. If he can have a career resurgence, it will be a steal. At the very least, he solidifies the cornerback position and will allow the Chargers to look at other positions in the draft.
