The San Diego Chargers added experience to their secondary today as the team announced they have agreed to terms with seven-year veteran Richard Marshall.
The 5-11, 198-pound cornerback has posted 451 tackles, 57 passes defensed, 18 interceptions and seven sacks over his career. Originally a second-round draft pick (58th overall) by the Panthers out of Fresno State in 2006, Marshall spent the first five years of his career in Carolina. His final two years there came under the tutelage of Chargers secondary coach Ron Milus, who held the same position with the Panthers. After leaving Carolina, Marshall spent 2011 with the Arizona Cardinals. He signed with the Miami Dolphins in 2012 and appeared in the team’s first four games, recording 17 tackles, one interception and one pass defensed before missing the rest of the season due to a back injury.
Marshall appeared in three games this preseason with the Dolphins, recording five tackles and one pass breakup.
