The Chargers were reportedly close to a deal with free agent CB Nathan Vasher over the weekend.
On Monday they made it official.
Vasher is coming from the Bears who originally made him a fourth round pick in the 2004 draft. He had a heck of a start to his career with a Pro Bowl appearance in just his second season.
San Diego makes sense because of his connection to the Turner family.
Ron Turner was in Chicago at the same time as Vasher as a coordinator. Ron's brother, Norv, is the head coach of the Chargers.
He should provide some depth after the Antonio Cromartie. However, he's been oft-injured and, at times, ineffective so relying on him to play full-time may be a risky move.
Vasher will make $4.5 million over two years.
