The San Diego Chargers have announced the signing of WR Eddie Royal to a 3 year contract.
Eddie Royal will likely be used as a 4th receiver behind Robert Meachem, Malcom Floyd, and Vincent Brown. He also will likely be used to return punts. The Chargers have needed their WR depth each of the last few seasons, as they’ve had a hard time staying healthy.
The Chargers have missed the spark provided on punt return by Sproles, and know firsthand how dangerous Eddie Royal can be as he returned a punt and a kick-off for a touchdown in the same game against the Chargers in 2009.
