Chargers get thinner on defensive line
By Bill Williamson
The San Diego Chargers saw defensive end Vaughn Martin agree to terms with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday. He started 28 games in the past two years.
He was more of a rotational player, but he had skills. The Chargers have seen defensive tackles Aubrayo Franklin (free agency) and Antonio Garay (he was cut) leave the team. The team has hopes for Cam Thomas. But there is a need at the position.
The Chargers have a solid starting front three of ends Corey Liuget, Kendall Reyes and Thomas. But depth is needed.
Meanwhile, U-T San Diego reports the Chargers still have interest in right tackle Eric Winston. But no deal is imminent. He was recently cut by the Kansas City Chiefs.
