- According to Caplan, Slauson will line up as center for the Chargers like he did for the Bears last year.
The Bears elected to cut Slauson loose last weekend, but it took just a few days for him to set up some visits with the Chargers and Bills.
It’s worth mentioning that signing Slauson to a contract won’t factor into the Chargers’ 2017 compensatory picks.
Slauson, 30, was in the third year of his four-year, $12.8 million contract when he was released in a move that freed up $2,570,000 in available cap space for the Bears.
In 2015, Slauson appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 5 center out of 39 qualifying players.
