Chargers ink former Broncos’ WR Eddie Royal
The San Diego Chargers are tying hard to fill the void Vincent Jackson left when he decided to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Earlier in the week the team signed former Saints speedster Robert Meachem and now they inked Eddie Royal.
Royal had a breakout rookie season in Denver, but hasn’t been the same since. Chargers fans hope quarterback Philip Rivers helps him return to the dominance he showed as a first-year starter with the Broncos.
From U-T San Diego:
The Chargers already signed one wide receiver this week.
Now, they’ve added another.
Eddie Royal arrived at Chargers Park on Thursday and clearly liked what he saw, agreeing to a three-year contract. The slot receiver, who spent his first four seasons with the Broncos, projects as a No. 4 wide receiver and punt returner.
