The San Diego Chargers have beefed up their special teams and return units with the word that they've signed Roscoe Parrish, formerly of the Buffalo Bills, to a one-year contract, according to Sam Farmer. Parrish is likely going to compete with Richard Goodman and another new free agent wide receiver Eddie Royal for primary return duties and time at wideout.
The Chargers are intent on bringing in some more targets for Philip Rivers after losing Vincent Jackson to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The team also lost Mike Tolbert from the running game and special teams unit as well. After bringing in Robert Meachem of the Saints, the team now has Royal and Parrish for Rivers and Norv Turner to utilize as well.
Parrish was lost for the year in 2011 after injuring his ankle, so the 29-year-old will be attempting to return to form later in his career. But he can definitely help in the passing game and provide a spark as a returner. It's another solid signing for a team that's making some nice maneuvers despite the heavy losses.
