Chargers add Roscoe Parrish
By Bill Williamson
The San Diego Chargers are giving Roscoe Parrish a chance to revive his NFL career.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported San Diego has signed Parrish to a one-year deal. He played in two games with the Buffalo Bills last season and in eight games the season before. Parrish has played his entire career with the Bills since joining the league in 2005, has 134 career catches and has been a successful return man.
At 29-years-old Parrish will have to impress the Chargers’ brass to make the team. At best, he will be a option at the bottom of the rotation and perhaps be a possibility as a returner.

The Contra Costa Times reports New York Giants’ free-agent defensive end Dave Tollefson said his visit with the Raiders went well Tuesday, but he is planning to visit the Titans on Thursday. He is also being pursued by the Packers. Tollefson is from the Bay Area and he was on the Raiders’ practice squad in 2007.
